Developing Training Structures for Child Care Personnel: Comments on Almy's Paper.
Madle, Ronald A.
In brief response to a paper presented at a conference, the distinction between training and education is emphasized in terms of mission and institutions best equipped to provide each service. Discussion subsequently focuses on the need for the development of detailed descriptions of the various positions in child care, along with statements of the required knowledge and skills of each position. The advantages of competency-based education and training are pointed out. Other topics briefly addressed in conclusion include the provision in training programs of supervised exposure to working with children, the role of secondary school programs in developing aide-level personnel, and the creation of career development programs that are external to universities.
