FOOD PROCESSING TRAINING
The training for International member of E9 Countries
With nearly 3.5 billion inhabitants in 2005-more than half the world population-the nine highly populated developing countries (E9) together represent tremendous challenges that weigh heavily on global education trends. A majority of the E9 countries have not yet achieved universal primary education and all face major quality deficits. Only two countries have achieved gender parity in primary and secondary education. Literacy remains an overriding challenge. Of the world's 771 million adults who lack the basic learning tools to make informed decisions and participate fully in the development of their societies, nearly 70% live in these nine countries. Tackling the literacy gap is both a moral and development imperative for E9 governments and donor countries. It requires strengthening efforts to expand education and to significantly improve its quality. But this alone does not suffice: there is also an urgent need to scale up youth and adult learning opportunities and to develop literate environments, in particular in those countries which still have low education indicators.
The 7th meeting of the E9 member countries on 11-12 march 2008 in Bali and the Senior Official Meeting of the member on 22-23 October 2008 in Jakarta, has concluded the agreement that Indonesia is expected to be able to share the best practices that have been achieved. This is aimed to provide the information of Indonesia's efforts in improving the quality of teachers to others.
As one the initiative member countries, Indonesia has taken part to conduct the main concerning programme in teacher's quality improvement. To contribute deeper in relation to the global programme, the Ministry of National Education Republic of Indonesia, along with Vocational Education Development Centre for Agriculture, will deliver a training programme in agriculture focus specifically on agriculture food processing.
Delegations are coming from the E9 member countries. It is assumed that the trainees are teachers or educational personnel in each country.
At the end of the training, trainees understand and master some particular food processing methods (plants and animals) which then will be applied by the trainees in their respective countries afterwards.
