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.'



The Education and Training of Technicians

Planning for the education and training of an adequate supply of the right kind of technician manpower is an essential part of national economic development planning. The government decides the order of priority of national economic objectives, and the proportion of the national income to be invested in each area. Executive decisions are then made about how national resources are to be used to achieve the objectives, and a forecast is made of the total manpower required and of the mix of specialists within it.
