International Journal of Training and Development reviewed


Title: International Journal of Training and Development, Vol 5, Number 1

Format: A5 paperback, 93 pages

This Journal aims to provide an international forum for the reporting and dissemination of research and analysis on training and development practice, policy and strategy. It covers both corporate and public policy.

The March edition of around a hundred pages includes six articles on a range of topics and an international briefing. The areas covered by the articles include, on-the-job training, learning and cognitive styles, supervisory support and transnational training needs. The contributors are all university-based staff and the articles are text-based academic-style, which is to be expected as the Journal aims to provide "high-quality research." The articles are not "coffee-table" reading, they need some concentration, but in most cases I found the effort worthwhile.

The international briefing reported on training and development in France. I found this very interesting as I had only a sketchy understanding of the structure and characteristics of training in France and the issues.

If you are interested in research and international comparative work, then you will find this Journal valuable. If you just need to keep informed, then maybe try to borrow for a browse!
