Education of the Young Worker

    Article metrics


    A SECOND Conference on the Education of the Young Worker, with a special subject for consideration, "The Entry into Work, Guidance and Initiation", will be held at Manchester College, Oxford, during July 23–29, 1949. Like its predecessor in 1948, it has been arranged under the auspices of the University Department of Education, the director of which is Mr. M. L. Jacks, and aims at bringing together representatives from industry, education, central and local government departments, voluntary organisations and other bodies which are concerned in the education and welfare of young people between the ages of fifteen and twenty who are no longer in full-time education. The Conference will work in commissions ; but whereas last year each commission had a special subject to consider, this year the subjects will be the same for all commissions, each of which will report its findings to the whole Conference at plenary sessions. Further information can be obtained from the Director, University Department of Education, 15 Norham Gardens, Oxford.
