Trainers - Best Practices Workbook For Hunting and Shooting Recruitment and Retention
Programs can expand their capabilities by reaching out to partners and training instructors. High quality professional development of instructions goes hand in hand with high quality curriculum materials. One without the other will more then likely lead to failure. The content, scope, and level of instruction may be (and probably should be) different for formal educators (school teachers) than for non-formal educators (agency, staff, volunteers, etc.), but the Best Practices identified in this chapter are concerned with the process of professional development/training, which should be similar for both.
