Deliberations of the Meeting

After discussing points arising from the Commonwealth Assistant Secretary-General's opening address, the meeting took a general look at the needs and priorities that a Commonwealth Programme would be designed to meet, and in particular at the various levels and patterns to which priority might be given. It first considered a proposition that practical training and formal courses of education might sometimes need to be so closely integrated that a Programme should provide for both elements, and recognized that if academic courses (however job-specific) were to be included, the proposed Programme would be unwieldy and very costly. The meeting agreed that both elements might exceptionally be included, but that the focus should be on practical training and, in particular, on job-specific practical training.
