Assessing Vocational-Technical Training Needs in the Eastern Caribbean Region: A Practitioner's Guide.
Sommers, Dixie
This guide is designed to assist countries in the Eastern Caribbean region in assessing their needs for vocational-technical training. It discusses needs assessment from an economy-wide perspective; needs assessments within a company are addressed briefly. The guide describes in detail each of the eight broad phases involved in conducting a successful needs assessment: laying the foundation; establishing the policy framework; engaging key stakeholders; reviewing the economy; selecting training needs indicators; gathering additional information; analysis and presentation of needs assessment results and recommendations; and putting the needs assessment results to work. Each phase includes step-by-step procedures that can be adapted to local conditions. A final section briefly discusses needs assessments within a company, including reasons for providing company training; three levels of company needs assessment; and resources for company needs assessment. Appendixes include 34 references and 20 endnotes. (YLB)
