This 4 years research project aimed for integrated comparative study of career development and vocational training for skilled workers between advanced industrial countries, focusing manufacturing industry. We selected USA, Germany, France, UK and Japan, and organized an interdisciplinary team.
In FY 2001,for domestic research we visited Nagashima Seiko Co. Ltd., machine tool maker. For preparing the overseas research, we discussed Prof. Lennart Nilson's reports intensively with him, while in Japan.
In FY 2002,our main target of overseas research was the German system. Our team visited two Gesamtschulen (comprehensive schools), a business Berufsfachschule (full-time vocational school), the ABB training center, and BMW Motor Co. Ltd. etc. We held workshop with researchers of Manheim University and discussed the career development and vocational training in Germany. For domestic research, our team visited Ishikawa Prefectural Traditional Craft Museum, Kanazawa Utatsuyama Craft Workshop, Is
hikawa Prefectural Technical Training Institute for Kutaniyaki, Nakamura-Tome Precision Industry Co. Ltd. and Toyota Motor (Motomachi Plant), with many findings regarding their training systems of traditional craft and skilled and multi-skillful workers of advanced manufacturing industry.
In FY 2003,our main target of overseas research was the system in the USA. Our team visited Henry Ford Community College, the UAW-DaimlerChrysler National Training Center and the Local 900 in UAW, etc. in Michigan, with strong support by Both Prof. Barbara Byrd (Oregon University) and Prof. John Beck (Michigan State University). Our research clearly reconfirmed the relationship between the apprenticeships and local community colleges, with positive training policy by Michigan State Government and significant involvement by the Skilled Trade Department in UAW into training programs. Regarding domestic research, we visited Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (Nagasaki Shipyard and Manufacturing Works), Techno School Matsue and Murata Manufacturing Co. Ltd. We clearly found de-industrialization of skills, overestimation of OJT, and recover of skill by intensive training in the workshop, etc.
In FY 2004,our main target of overseas research was the system both in France and the United Kingdom. Our team visited the Central Human Resources Department of Renault, a technological lycee, a vocational lycee, and the organizations relating training for crafts in France. We reconfirmed the system based on close relation between apprenticeships and school education. In the United Kingdom (England), our team visited Honda Institute, Peterborough Regional College, Siemens Barduct Co. Ltd. etc. As the result of the visits there, we clearly confirmed close relation between the National Vocational Qualifications and "Modern Apprenticeships", with significant involvement of private training providers. As domestic research, we visited Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (Nagasaki Shipyard and Manufacturing Works) (again), Nagasaki Advanced Technical College and Yasda Precision Tools K.K., with many findings to make their workers highly skilled such as, "Gino-Juku" at Mitsubishi and the restructuring of work organizations at Yasda.
