Supervisor Training Manual: Project Skill.
The manual directs Project Skill trainers in providing supervisors with concepts and methods of training mildly retarded and/or emotionally disturbed workers to perform at or above the minimum level expected of all a firm's employees. The role of the trainer using this manual is to set up and conduct activities which will provoke supervisors to look at and possibly change training methods to be more efficient. The supervisory training consists of two group sessions of approximately three hours. The manual offers detailed procedures for running each session and exercises to help emphasize training needs. The training concept acknowledges the special problems involved in training inexperienced or disadvantaged persons and is constructed so that the supervisor is constantly conditioned to apply common sense and accumulated experiences to this subject, toward the end of developing a more thoughtful and reasoned approach to training employees. The techniques include a brief film, group discussions, work sheet exercises, and other group exercises which will focus the attention and interest of the group. The teaching strategies are (1) to guide the supervisors into experiencing the idea of the session in their own ways and in their own terms, and (2) to guide them to a positive conclusion.
