Professional Training Programs as Tools for Effective Staff Development: A Case Study
Dirani, Khalil
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Conference (AHRD) (Austin, TX, March 3-7, 2004) p1143-1150 (Symp. 53-2)
This study focuses on the influence of professional training programs on trainees' development. A training program was evaluated through exploring trainees' perceptions of its influence on their skill development. The findings suggest that while professional training programs may be relevant to trainees' needs for career development and life-long learning, such programs fail to tackle problems specific to a trainee's organization. In particular, it is often hard to integrate generic training ideas into specific workplace settings. (Contains 1 table.) [For complete proceedings, see ED491481.]
