Report to the Government of Zambia on Co-Operative Education.
International Labour Office, Geneva (Switzerland).
This 1-year study was undertaken in the Reupublic of Zambia to survey and analyze needs in cooperative education and training and to plan and execute immediate courses with detailed curricula in this area. A brief history of Zambian cooperative societies and a description of the expert's study activities are followed by conclusions and recommendations, the major ones being: (1) the five different types of cooperative society, because of different educational needs, must be dealt with separately; (2) first priority in cooperative education should be given to marketing unions, viable farming societies, and savings and credit societies; (3) a projection shows the expected increase of numbers of persons who would need education in 1972 and 1975; (4) the activities, guidance, and services of existing cooperative officers and cooperative education secretaries should be expanded for training; and (5) a central and specialized institution for cooperative education should be established. More than two-thirds of the booklet is devoted to appendixes on a cooperative education plan for Zambia, 1973-75: Part 1, survey and analysis of needs within cooperative education and training; Part 2, existing institutions for cooperative education and training; and Part 3, plan for content and organization of cooperative education and training 1973-75.
