Training for Small Businesses in the European Community. (Guides to Competency in the Design of Effective Training Programmes). Introduction, Guides 1-5, and Bibliography.
This series of guides is designed for those involved in organizing and delivering training to existing or would-be small business owners. The overall aim is to focus attention on the basic competencies required by organizers and trainers for effective program development and delivery. A short introductory booklet sets out the overall objectives of the five guides and how they might be used. The five guides are as follows: (1) a general guide to the development of trainer/organizer competency for the creation of effective small business training programs; (2) a guide to the basic competency requirements for developing training programs to stimulate the pre-start-ups; (3) a guide to the basic competency requirements for developing effective training programs to assist business start-ups; (4) a guide to the competency requirements for developing effective training programs to assist small businesses under 50 employees to survive and grow; and (5) a guide to the challenge to trainers and organizers of the single European market of 1992 and the competencies required to develop effective programs to help small firms cope with the transition. Each guide provides examples and cases of training programs in countries of the European Community (EC), and most include a short list of books, pamphlets, and other guides available in each country. A bibliography lists enterprise training materials available in EC Member States, with source contacts. (YLB)
