The ITU and Vocational Training. Interregional Project for Course Development in Telecommunications. Booklet No. 24.
International Telecommunication Union, Geneva (Switzerland).
This pamphlet produced by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) outlines the development and progress of a project designed to develop a model for vocational training in telecommunications. The Course Development in Telecommunications (CODEVTEL) approach is discussed in terms of job-related training, teaching materials, sharing resources, and the application of the training and development guidelines. Advantages of the CODEVTEL approach are reviewed and include comments on pooling resources, improved quality and standardization of vocational training, cost/benefit ratios, and operational organization. It was reported in the conclusions concerning phase 1 of the project that producing and sharing materials is feasible. Proposals for the second phase are included and identify the utilization of existing courses, adaptation procedures, and the development of new courses as the main thrust. Future prospectives are reviewed in the context of technical cooperation among developing countries and the use of technology adapted to the precise needs of user countries. An 11-item glossary and an array of charts and pictures depicting the project's activities are included. A guide describing the 14 phases of training and development are appended. (BPB)
