The emphasis in education is one of providing young people with a basic general education through schools, followed by further education opportunities at colleges and universities with a commitment thereafter to ‘lifetime learning’ so as to equip people with the necessary basic and vocational skills to adapt to the changing needs of the workplace. This is augmented by more specialised vocational schemes to match up peoples’ educational capabilities with the practical requirements of specific work tasks through ‘on-the-job-training’ (See TRAINING) and the provision of courses designed to teach people new skills (e.g. computer programming courses).
