Training the Technical Trainer: Issues and Strategies. Papers Presented at a Workshop (Chiba City, Japan, May 13-23, 1987).
Asian Development Bank, Manila (Philippines).
In May 1987 a regional workshop was organized in Japan under the technical assistance program of the Asian Development Bank with the collaboration of the Asian and Pacific Skill Development Programme of the International Labour Organisation and the support of the Ministry of Labor of the government of Japan. The workshop addressed the major issues in developing effective technical trainers in the participating countries. The main body of the book incorporates resource papers presented and discussed in the workshop. Three subthemes provide the scheme by which the papers are classified. The first subtheme, Developing the Framework, includes papers that highlight the importance of linking training programs with other national development efforts. The second subtheme, Developing the Systems, discusses principles and practices necessary to develop more effective training systems. Finally, the third and largest part of the book includes papers addressing the subtheme of Developing the Instruments. These papers discuss the various mechanisms successfully used in a number of countries to make the training effort significantly more effective. The last section of the book outlines conclusions and recommendations of the workshop relating to nine areas: (1) training policy; (2) training staff; (3) training curriculum; (4) training materials; (5) training approaches; (6) training standards; (7) training research; (8) regional cooperation; and (9) technical assistance.
