Toward Middle-Level Manpower Education for Colombia. A Report to USAID Colombia.
Johnson, B. Lamar
Education for middle-level manpower, a high-priority need in Colombia, is discussed. The current programs of five educational agencies--universities, university institutes, SENA (National Apprentice Service), industrial schools, and agricultural schools--that are providing some preparation for middle-level manpower positions are described. A discussion is provided of the assets and problems of the university institutes, which are postsecondary educational institutions that offer programs, of up to 3 years, to prepare students for middle-level manpower positions. Recommendations for middle-level manpower education in Colombia, focused mainly on the university institutes, are made. Ten proposals for assisting middle-level manpower education in Colombia through USAID and other United States agencies are presented. Conclusions reached as a result of the study are provided. (DB)
