Programming and Training Booklet 6: How to Integrate Programming and Training.
Peace Corps, Washington, DC. Information Collection and Exchange Div.
This booklet, one of six that compose the Peace Corp's programming and training (P&T) guidelines, provides information and ideas on ways to increase each post's effectiveness through linking P&T. An introduction discusses the direct impact that P&T have on the success of each other, since, at the Peace Corps, programming drives training, and training informs programming. Section 2 provides an overview of P&T integration. The following nine sections cover the points of integration that occur when staff members design, review, and revise the project plan; conduct task analyses and develop competencies; design and implement training events; select staff for P&T; orient and develop staff; select training sites and develop community resources; assess trainees and PCVs; assess training; assess programming; document P&T; participate in planning and budgeting processes; request resources to support P&T; and request volunteers. A final section discusses challenges of integrating P&T. Appendixes include acronyms; glossary; P&T integration checklist; training informs programming scenarios; sample timeline; training continuum; types of Peace Corps training; description of work format; materials for Pre-Service Training; and questions to guide action planning and resource planning for training.
