In Japan, the U.S.A. and European countries, vocational and technical education is generally classified into three types a schooling type, a school/corporate collaboration type, and an after-school type. This study chooses France, the U.S.A., Germany and Japan as the countries which represent each type of voca-tional and technical education. It also analyzes the characteristics and trends of curriculum development employed in the four countries. This paper examines vocati-anal and technical education from the following four perspectives : 1)organization of career guidance, 2)curriculum organization, such as the integration of vocational and general education, practicum and integrated learning, 3)certificate exam and skills test, and 4)establishment of partnerships among local communities, corporations and schools.
France is a country which has a schooling type of vocational and technical education (technical/vocational lycees). There exists interdependence between certificate/license ac
quisition and schooling. Also gaining popularity among French learners is the after-school type, such as continuing education and corporate professional development courses. The U.S.A., which is another country with the schooling type education, is working on educational reforms such as drop out prevention and career development/counseling at the comprehensive high school and community college level. In Germany, the school/corporate collaboration type prevails, and unique activities that assist youth career development have evolved. However, due to recent advancing technology, the schooling type (vocational colleges) is also becoming popular in Germany. Finally, Japan shares with the other countries similar issues and concerns in the implementation of vocational and technical education. It is working on the diversification of curriculum under a governmental policy that encourages "promotion of originality".
