SESSION 5: Preparing a Training Session


Managers of community nutrition projects are frequently called upon to help workers and community members meet their needs for new information and skills. As such, they must often plan and participate in training workshops and in-service training activities. In larger projects, they may be responsible for training project supervisors as well as field workers and community volunteers.

This unit introduces a step-by-step method for planning training activities. It also reviews some of the techniques that are useful in the training of adults and presents guidelines for choosing techniques to meet training needs. By the end of the unit, participants will have planned a training program for community nutrition workers, complete with training objectives, schedule and sample lesson plans. The methodology introduced can be used by participants during or after training to develop training plans for their own community projects.
