A. Background of the Report
Education has been regarded as a means toward economic stability and progress. The increases productivity of the workforce is due mainly to the increase in the education and training of the people. The success and development of the country would greatly depend in the productivity of its human resources – which is considered as one of the vital asset of the nation. And to have a good and competent man power resources, quality education and intensive training is necessary for the students to become skilled and productive workers when they become part of the labor force (Taladtad & Bala, 2010). It is said that education is primarily concerned with the opening out to the world of the students so that he can choose his interests and mode of living, and his career. (Taladtad, 2010) On the other hand, training is primarily concerned with the preparing the participants from certain lines of action, which are delineated by technology and by the organization in which he works. The most effective method to develop the competence and skills of students is trough hands – on training – the on-the-job training. This process exposes the students to the different fields and learned. Moreover, it allows the students to become familiar and made known with the actual operation of the business and the state-of-the-art of the facilities, equipment and technology used (Rodelas, 2010). On-the-Job Training is a type of skill development where a student learns how to do the work through hands-on experience. This is in contrast to skill formation that is purely cognitive or perceptual. (Cyprus, 2012) OJT generally gives the trainee the opportunity to work in the same place and with the same equipment that will be used regularly which can make it an efficient approach to learn new things. As a senior student, taking up a degree of Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, it is a must for us to undergo 600 hours training in a company. Before the semester starts, the trainee looked a company where to spend the on-the-job training. The company that the trainee is applying for must be related to the trainee’s field of specialization, where she can apply the skills and knowledge learned.
On-the-job training is a training that takes place at the work site and is supervised by a manager or an experienced co-worker. Certain job requires on-the-job training under the policy of the individual employer.
For the students, OJT is the main method of acquiring human capital along with education. It helps the student enhancing their capability of work and develops their knowledge and skills by performing in actual work setting through day to day experience.
On the other hand, a trainee also gives big help to the company, because they provide additional manpower to lessen their labor cost. Trainees can also contribute an idea that eventually helps in improving the organization’s productivity.
On-the-job training also helps the trainee recognize its strong and weak points in the field of working. It allows the trainee to initiate ways to modify his/her weaknesses into a capability that could be a big help as the trainee is already in the real working environment.
