Item Type: Book
Additional Information: This publication is based on research for the ESRC Project 'Routes to the High Skills Economy' which was co-directed by Phil Brown, Hugh Lauder and Andy Green and graded with a distinction in its final evaluation. This comparative study of skills formation and economic competitiveness in 6 countries was based on extensive reviewing of the generic and country specific literautres and interviews with over 200 policy-makers, corporate executives and managers of education institutions in the case study countries. The book makes an original contribution to the understanding of the relationship between skills formation systems and national competitiveness strategies, particularly in its analysis of the effects of systems which produce more or less polarised skills distribution in the labour market and the relevance of these for competition strategies in different sectors in different countries. The book is published by Oxford univeristy Press in hard back and paperback editions and was subject to the publishers normal peer review process. The authors have given numerous invited addresses on the basis of the book's research, including to the DFES Skills Strategy Steering group, and is one of the two or three most cited comparative studies of skills formation and competitiveness in English. Andy Green wrote slightly over one third of the text (105 pages) of this book.
