Education vs. training

Last Friday I was speaking at the Quality in the Third Sector Seminar but also attended the whole event.

In her speech, Manuela Pérez, manager of the Quality and Productivity Program of the CIDEM said:

“Training is not education: training is teaching someone how to do some things but not telling him why”

I had never looked at it that way… Thus, I think we should educate more than train people, specially those less developed…


If you need to cite this article in a formal way (i.e. for bibliographical purposes) I dare suggest:
