Re-Training of Older Workers.
Iron and Steel Industry Training Board, London (England).
Designed to assist training staff in the planning and implementation of training for older workers, this guide indicates: the main problem areas; the extent and importance of the various requirements; some industrial experience in dealing with such problems; and some further resources of information on particular aspects of training of adults. The principal factors affecting the success or failure of the plan are: the design of training which takes account of the organizational problems peculiar to adults with their established attitudes and conventions; and the choice of training methods within this pattern which take account of their age and previous experience and enable them to learn most effectively. Appendixes include problems of learning for the adult and sources of further information. (Author/EB)
