Study of the Need for University Trained Personnel in the Field of Adult Education.
Hall, Budd L.; Haule, G. O.
A study was made to determine how many university level adult educators are likely to be needed by the organizations involved in adult education in Tanzania, and to determine the type of training desired by these organizations. Heads of 38 of the organizations were interviewed. It was found that the organizations are willing to release and sponsor many candidates for the diploma course or to hire larger numbers of personnel in the future trained at the current diploma level. Several employers wanted their adult educators to have some practical skills as well; several wanted a Mature Age Entry candidate who then had the specific training in adult education. Each organization wanted its people trained in a combination of subjects that might include some radio, some methods, some planning and administration, or some evaluation. Education in Tanzania was desired by those organizations needing personnel. It is clear that there may be a need for B.A. level adult educators in the next five to ten years; but there is need to think seriously about alternatives to the university setting for adult educators who will work in rural socialist development.
