Chemical Education in Europe is reviewed in this book, to the best of our knowledge for the first time, not only across bordes (horizontal dimension) but also across levels of education (vertical dimension) in attempt to present a holistic view. The White Book focuses on such forms of education that contain practical work experience elements.
The European context is presented in chapter 1, featuring educational policy of the EU, structural changes and needs in the chemical industry, social partners’ views and projects in related fields.
Chapter 2 contains country reports for Austria, Germany, the UK, Ireland, Spain, Finland, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia. In chapter 3, educational forms at ISCED-levels 3-6 are compared, including life long learning. Chapter 4 presents good practice examples taking the employers’, the students’ and the academic view. Strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities are analysed in chapter 5. From these findings, chapter 6 draws conclusions, giving recommendations for policy and action to be taken.
The vision of the project FACE is “a European House of Chemical Education”.
