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.'



Manpower Planning and the Technician

Manpower planning is an attempt to predict the role of the labour force in the achievement of the objectives of a national development plan. These objectives are matters of government policy, and reflect the kind of society that a country's rulers wish to create, establish and maintain. Though the priorities are a consequence of the political, economic, and social philosophy of the government, the main priorities are likely to be the provision of higher standards of living and an improved quality of life – particularly for the very poor, the undernourished, the badly housed, the socially ill-adjusted, the under-educated and the under-trained.
