Educating and Training Technicians

image of Educating and Training Technicians

This book, by a recognised authority on the subject, will be of value to all who are concerned with the education and training of all technicians. It is uncompromising in its view that the shortage of trained technicians in developing countries has retarded their pace of industrialisation, and that their future economic and social progress will depend on the quality and quantity of technicians they produce. For, in the words of LS Chandrakant: 'It is imperative for all developing countries to train and develop their own indigenous personnel as competent technicians. In the final analysis the pace and direction of the economic progress of developing countries will largely depend upon how far they solve their technician problem.'



Administration, Finance, Control and Inspection

The aims and objectives of a country's educational system determine such matters as priorities and emphases in technician education as a whole and in the curriculum in particular, the education, conditions of service, qualifications and status of teachers, and the examinations taken by students. Different political interpretations of authority, democracy, discipline, and freedom affect the roles of the governing bodies of technical colleges and of academic boards, staff associations, students' unions, principals, heads of departments, and teachers.
