Describes models for empirical enquiry. Since the publication of the CEDEFOP guides to competence in the design of enterprise training programmes the need to train a cadre of professional enterprise trainers for small business has become widely accepted throughout Europe. There is a consensus of opinion which favours a competence‐based and process‐related approach. Discusses a framework for research and describes models of the “process” of enterprise training, based on practical experience, as a basis for functional analysis to determine relevant enterprise trainer competences. Concludes that the CEDEFOP guides provide a starting point, but there is considerable scope for research into enterprise training processes, trainer competences and outcomes in different small business contexts.
