A Thai inservice training program for secondary school teachers of English as a Second Language is discussed, focusing on the skills needed by trainers to provide effective collaborative instruction to teachers. The training is provided at specialized regional centers. Staff (n=22) at these centers were surveyed concerning the training skills they felt necessary to be successful trainers, those they felt they possessed, and those they required training in. Subsequently, the design of a program to train these teacher educators is examined. Program aspects considered include teaching methods, instructional materials, and course format and content as they relate to the practical needs of regional teacher training center staff. A suggested teacher educator training curriculum is outlined. The questionnaire used in the initial survey is appended. (MSE)
