The Training of a Cadre: An Application of the PETC Systems. Improving Teaching Competencies Program.
Bell, Warren; And Others
This report documents an application of the Preparing Educational Training Consultants (PETC) systems to the training of a cadre of internal organizational specialists, presenting its analysis in five chapters dealing with (1) a description of the systems, the context and focus of the study and major questions guiding the evaluation; (2) a history and background of the cadre; (3) a documentation of training intervention by the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory (NWREL); (4) training outcomes; and (5) conclusions and recommendations. Designed by NWREL to provide educators with practical skills and knowledge for organizational development and planned change, PETC trains small groups of educators within a school system to be able to provide help in (1) training in group process skills (PETC I); (2) consulting in a temporary relationship (PETC II); and (3) long-term organizational training and consultation (PETC III). Upon completing the program, participants are expected to be able to diagnose training needs in process skills, provide training activities to meet those needs, strengthen weak organizational functions, and facilitate normative and structural changes in the organization to improve overall effectiveness. Tables and appendixes are included. (MB)
