Industrial Work and Educational Development 1


    LOCAL authorities have tried in various ways to secure in their work for further education the cooperation of employers of labour in their areas.—Under present industrial and educational conditions, great importance attaches to any action taken by employers either in increasing their employees' opportunities for attending technical classes or in urging, and granting practical recognition to, the gain which systematic study in such classes brings to workmen who attend them. In 1903 the Board prepared a circular describing some of the more fruitful efforts which had been made in securing the cooperation of employers in these and similar ways, and the issue of this circular stimulated further efforts of the kind in various parts of the country. It is now generally recognised that one of the duties of managers of technical schools is to establish and maintain the closest possible relations with - those under whom their students are employed.
