Authors : Mohammad Jiaul Hoque and Usami Koichi

Abstract: This study was carried out to describe the perception of Block Supervisors (BSs) of On-the-Job Training (OJT). Four out of 13 upazilas (sub-district) in Kishoreganj district were selected randomly. In the selected upazilas, 111 BSs posted in different blocks those were the sample for the study. A set of questionnaires was used for collecting data through personal interview during a period from July to August, 2004. Findings indicated that 41% of the BSs had a slightly favorable perception of OJT, while 37% had a highly favorable perception of OJT. Discriminant analysis indicated that two statements, such as "OJT could minimize the likelihood of making the same mistakes while serving farmers" and "OJT permits periodic transfer from one upazila or district to another upazila or district, which could be helpful to form their new skills" were placed the BSs in the group of highly favorable perception of OJT. Implications of these results are given and recommendations are made.
