This handbook was compiled by a co-operative education officer who prepared a plan for a member-education programme from the pre-formation stage to the first full year of operation of a small, primary agricultural co-operative. The plan provides a very good guide for trainers and was, therefore, produced in handbook format.
In a very thorough way, he has shown why the work should be done, what he proposes to do and how he intends to do it. In the handbook, the pages on the right are the co-operative worker's plan, while, on the left, some comments have been included, to highlight the main points of interest. The comments are designed to stimulate thought about the approach and methods suggested in the plan. Although the example used in the handbook is setting up an agricultural co-operative, this does not limit its applicability, since it provides good ideas on planning. The contents of the manual are not to be taken as a mode, only as a guide in the preparation of co-operative member-education programmes. It should be of interest and of help to anyone responsible for this kind of work. Equally, it could be used as training material, perhaps in the form of a case study, on courses for field-education workers.
