TOGETHER with other interested bodies, the “Arbeitseinsatzverwaltung” (Labour Utilization Administration), has (or long been devoting increasing attention to the problem of supplementary training in the metal working industries. Formerly, these measures for the schooling and training of metal‐workers had been directed principally at improving the personal standard of efficiency of the individual; recently they have assumed a wider importance on account of the shortage of labour in certain of the metal‐working trades. The Labour Exchanges have concerned themselves directly with these schemes; in past years, with financial support, in collaboration with other agencies. Between 1933 and 1938, the training schemes sponsored by the Retch Labour Administration (Reichs‐Arbeitsverwaltung), dealt with a total of some 390,000 workers.
