Abstract: Vocational Education and Training for a Global Economy investigates the greatly varying ways in which four countries—Singapore, Switzerland, China, and the United States—prepare young people for the twenty-first-century workplace. The book looks first at the highly successful vocational education and training (VET) systems in Singapore and Switzerland, describing them in revealing detail and accounting for the assumptions and social arrangements that account for their unique features. It then turns to the two largest—and arguably the most dynamic—nations in the world, China and the United States, and examines the differing conditions, goals, and arrangements that have affected their respective programs for preparing their citizens for present and future work.
