New Jersey Community Action Training Inst., Trenton.
The basic approach of this manual for trainers of welfare aides is the use of the trainee's experience and the conscious analysis of it. It encourages people to look at their job performance within the framework of experiencing, identifying, analyzing, and generalizing. Hints are given as to how to develop understanding of the organization, how to interview prospective trainees in small or large groups, and how to order and use the information gathered. How to develop an agreement with agency managers about training follows--then how to plan the training, covering specific goals, scheduling, optional techniques, use of outside resources, plan for evaluation, and relationships with co-trainers. Key areas are suggested for success: the entry process, contract-building, climate in the group, trainer's role, observation, working with other trainers, and using consultants. Discussion of evaluation by participants, by trainers, and by on the job experience follows. A Program Evaluation and Review Technique (P.E.R.T.) chart is included. (EB)
