THE SELECTION AND TRAINING OF INSTRUCTORS, A STATEMENT BY THE CENTRAL TRAINING COUNCIL. MEMORANDUM NUMBER 6.
Ministry of Labour, London (England).
THE OFF-THE-JOB TRAINING INSTRUCTOR MUST KNOW THE SKILL HE WILL TEACH, HAVE BROAD EARLY TRAINING, AND POSSESS SUCH PERSONAL QUALITIES AS SELF-RELIANCE, CONFIDENCE, AND THE ABILITY TO GET ALONG WITH OTHERS. THE MINISTRY OF LABOUR TRAINS INSTRUCTORS THROUGH THE JOB INSTRUCTION PROGRAM IN THE TRAINING WITHIN INDUSTRY SCHEME, WHICH DEVELOPS INSTRUCTING SKILLS OF SUPERVISORS RATHER THAN TRAINS FULL-TIME INSTRUCTORS AND IS AN AID TO INSTRUCTOR SELECTION. AT THE TWO INSTRUCTOR TRAINING COLLEGES, ATTACHED TO THE GOVERNMENT TRAINING CENTRES AT LETCHWORTH AND HILLINGTON, TWO-WEEK TRAINING IS GIVEN IN SEVERAL TRADES. STUDENTS ARE SHOWN THE BEST TECHNIQUES OF INDUSTRIAL TEACHING AND EACH IS GIVEN SIX PRACTICE PERIODS DURING WHICH HE GIVES (1) TWO DEMONSTRATIONS TO A FELLOW STUDENT AND ONE TO A GROUP ON HOW TO PERFORM A MANIPULATIVE JOB, (2) A TRADE TALK, AND (3) TWO HALF-HOUR LESSONS TO A CLASS. THE CAPACITY OF THE INSTRUCTOR TRAINING COLLEGES IS BEING EXPANDED TO PROVIDE 2,500 PLACES A YEAR AND OTHER GOVERNMENT TRAINING CENTRES WILL BE SET UP IF NECESSARY. EVALUATION IS BEING MADE OF THE TRAINING COURSES AND METHODS OF INSTRUCTION. (DOCUMENT INCLUDES A LIST OF ORGANIZATIONS PROVIDING INSTRUCTOR TRAINING COURSES.)
