The paper takes as its base a research project, conducted in 1990/91, examining the policies and practices of the NSW Department of Community Services (formerly Family and Community Services) and the manner in which community services training was dealt with by this Department. This project sought to : Examine the role of the Department with regard to training provision, and, as part of this, identify what understanding Departmental Officers had of this role, and whether that role was reflected in policy and programme documents. Determine how that role was being carried out, looking at what resources were being applied, what models and methods of training provision were being utilised, and how Departmental Officers saw the adequacy or effectiveness of current provision. Discuss what that role should be, under both ideal conditions, and under the constraints and limitations that are likely to exist, and how Departmental Officers saw these factors.
