One of the challenges of HRD is to identify promising students of management, and provide them with the kinds of apprenticeships which provide a test of whether the student is ready and able to link his classroom learnings with real performance challenges. Also the organization needs the opportunity to make a crucial contribution to the student's professional development, and to present a self development challenge beyond anything the classroom can provide. The training models presented here are general models applicable to undergraduate and graduate eduction, and adaptable to on‐the‐job professional development programs.
