Training of Training Officers; Introductory Courses. A Report by the Central Training Council's Committee on the Training of Training Officers.
Ministry of Labour, London (England). Central Training Council.
Recommendations are given for introductory courses for potential and recently appointed training officers in British industry, particulary those of medium size. The course should cover a minimum period of 120 hours in an approved college; it should include sessions on the training function, assessment of training needs, formulating and implementing programs, and assessing training effectiveness. It should be at least a six weeks "sandwich" course, in two periods of two weeks, split by a period of supervised project work, and where possible it should be residential. Colleges should exercise control over selection of candidates; they should set up Advisory Committees to plan courses in cooperation with local industry; and they should institute procedures for assessing the effectiveness of their courses. The introductory course should be followed by supervised practical experience in a student's own firm, if possible, or in another firm. Consideration should be given to approved specialized courses qualifying for financial assistance from the Ministry of Labour and the Training Boards. (pt)
