Abstract

IMITATION, IT appears, is not, after all, the sincerest form of flattery; the memorandum ‘Training for Skill’, produced jointly by the NUT and the ATTI contains severe criticism of the Carr Report whose title it borrows. As one might imagine, educational organisations being as touchy as the rest, the exclusion from the Carr Committee of representatives of the professional educational bodies forms the subject of the opening attack. Although the Ministry of Education, the Scottish Education Department, the Association of Technical Institutions and the City and Guilds of London Institute now play some part in the deliberations of the Industrial Training Council, the NUT and the ATTI appear aggrieved that, despite their requests, they themselves have not secured representation. In questioning whether the Industrial Training Council is correctly constituted to perform its unenviable task, the memorandum highlights a fundamental problem, one that has been neglected.
