It is necessary to carry out planned On-the-Job Training (OJT) effectively in order to develop human resources to address problems such as lack of personnel and time. Approaches to enhancing the effectiveness of planned OJThave been proposed for the personnel training of teachers. The purpose of this study is to clarify the effects of planned OJTand the factors that influence it by comparing the OJT target person and the person in charge of planned OJT. This study includes a hypothesis model and research questionnaire for OJT target persons (novice faculty members with one year of teaching experience) and persons in charge of planned OJT. Confirmatory factor analysis is applied to the questionnaire data in order to clarify the construct. The hypothesis model is verified by covariance structure analysis. The conclusion consists of two points. Firstly, planned OJT has direct and indirect effects by mediating the subordinate training attitude for OJT target persons and persons in charge of the OJT. Secondly, differences are observed in context.
