Rethinking Professional Development: Reference Manual for Developing Professional Skills among Organizations and Practitioners within an Integrated Andragogical Process (2013)

Published by Réseau pour le développement de l’alphabétisme et des compétences (RESDAC), this reference manual promotes the development of a set of professional competencies among practitioners who are committed to their own career development process, while also working to develop the competencies of adults with low literacy skills.

It defines the key roles of design, management, and training; proposes a set of functions and competencies associated with each key role; and describes the characteristics of those functions and competencies.

The author notes that the reference manual is not a final document, but rather, the start of a knowledge-building process. The manual will continue to be refined through feedback from people in the field.

It is primarily intended for organizations rather than individuals because the responsibility for suggesting training and skills development is usually seen as an organization’s responsibility, the author says. Generally speaking, such training is tailored to the workplace’s specific needs, and should be organized in ways that promote the development of members’ skills, both individually and collectively.
