It is difficult to give precise definitions of and distinction between training and education. Many authors on staff development who have attempted to do so have tended to formulate definitions which only fit the particular purposes of their writings. However, in the United Nations’ publication, “Handbook of Training in the Public Service”, training has been defined as the process of imparting a body of knowledge and developing skills that enable a person to improve his work performance. From this definition, it is implied that training involves teaching and learning of skills, which by its nature, implies task orientation.
