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.'

Foreword

One reason why many developing countries show great readiness to spend a large proportion of their annual budget on education is that they hope educational expansion will eventually lead to a greater supply of manpower for national development. Over the years, many developing countries have experienced disappointment in the outcome of their educational programmes. In no field is this disappointment more acutely felt than in the field of technical education.
