A Coordinated Training Program for New Agents.
Hutchison, J. E.
This training program handbook provides a basis for planning a sequence of learning situations during the Extension Service agents' first year of employment. Through this experience, it is hoped that new agents will acquire the knowledge, competencies, and skills thought to be necessary to successfully orient them to the Texas Agricultural Extension Service and to effectively implement an educational program on a county basis. In addition, the handbook has been designed to assist those persons who have training responsibilities for new agents. It provides a means by which decisions can be made relative to the planning, implementation, and evaluation of a training program. This training program is designed to provide each new agent with an understanding of (1) the purpose, objectives, and philosophy of Extension work; (2) job responsibilities and performance standards; (3) organizational procedures; (4) relationships with other agencies and organizations; (5) programming methods and techniques; and (6) 4-H Club work in the state. Along with a section containing a checklist for training new agents, there are sections defining the responsibilities for the following: (1) district agents; (2) trainer agents; (3) training teams, Phases I and II; and (4) the trainee.
