Nursoy, Mustafa
Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, v8 n2 p603-610 May 2008
The skills necessary for the training of technical staff during their training and education vary according to the viewpoint of the employees. Like the nature of the industry, the skills of the staff are evolving continuously. The conformity of training institutions to this evolution is always among current issues; however, the implementation is not as easy as it may seem. According to the results of this study which was held to determine the applicability of a training system applied by the EC, USA, and other developed countries for decades and to make our vocational technical training system more efficient for meeting the requirement of the industry. This study is aimed to determine the needs of the industry on this issue. The industrial plants around Ankara were chosen as the sample of the study. The need for a new system and regulations is clearly seen to be necessary. A novel model thought to be suitable for Turkey's conditions and the developments over the world is proposed after the results of the study. (Contains 1 figure.)
