INTRODUCTION

The purpose of training and development is to bring the skill of individual employees of an organization up to the desired standard for the present or potential assignment more broadly and this development provide the basic skill and knowledge required in carrying out various specialized part in overall task of the organization.  And help to ensure that these development experiences are of co-ordinated and in line with the needs of the individual and the organization.
These experiences may be provided in the form of continuity flow of instructions, commands, criticisms, question and suggestions.  In terms of induction course after employment and before placement on a permanent job.  This might last between one month to three months.
Apprenticeship is an example of long, more extensive kind of skill training, although it may include general course as well.

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Training and development are perceived over the world as the vehicles of transformation of employee by the employer to achieve the organizational goal.  Any attempt to determine the most effective process, there are certain problems that will need immediate energy such as:
1. How can training needs be determined and how can a training need be distinguished from an organization need that can be satisfy in some other ways?
2. How are the utility (reactive) of various training method and devices?
3. How can people be motivated to increase their capabilities for contributing to the attainment of organizational objective?
4. How can it be determined and what extent can the objective of the training programme be achieved?
If training or development programme are imposed upon people and are interpreted as punishment for differences, there will be little enthusiasm and probably little effective learning and also if the training programme are imposed upon an already over-worked or stressfully individual, the learning is likely to interfere with the effective performance and effective learning.  Furthermore, if what is learned by employee in contrary to the behavioural patterns of work environment will not tolerate expression of what has being learnt.
