Vocational Training in the Community by Reinhard Skinner
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Vocational training is essential to equip urban people with the skills to find employment, and this study of an integrated training project in El Salvador offers field-tested approaches and procedures which can be applicable to vocational training schemes throughout the globe. The project described in this book was part of El Salvador's National Programme for Technical and Vocational Training, which aimed to restructure the vocational training system at the same time as increasing employment, and many of the methods described here were developed in the course of the programme. The demand for training was always high enough for courses to be designed on the basis of requests received by different parts of the country, and so to meet these identified needs at times and in places that suited the participants. The courses included a business component, and covered health and safety and gender issues as well as practical training for work that was in demand in each community. The work describes feasibility studies, community participation in the setting up of courses, curriculum, training materials, monitoring and evaluation and job placement. Many of the forms used by the project are reproduced for guidance in the appendix. The book also covers contracts, business training reports, and supervision surveys.
