One aspect of modern technology which affects today's society is the use of computers. Against this background a study of curriculation is made and a needs assessment done on word-processing for commercial education students at South African technikons. In order to determine the needs for training in wordprocessing amongst commercial teachers in the Cape Province, permission was obtained from the Cape Department of Education to sent out a questionnaire. A second questionnaire was distributed to lecturers who train commercial teachers at technikons in the Republic of South Africa in order to obtain knowledge and insight which could lead to the establishment of criteria for the tuition of word-processing to the said education students. This study is supported by a continuous literature study. According to the random sample the commercial teachers mentioned regarding word-processing skills as very important and would like to attend a short in-service training course in this respect. Based on feedback on the other questionnaire distributed to lecturers at the five South African technikons currently training commercial teachers, criteria were formulated for the presentation of word-processing to commercial education students. Personal interviews on word-processing were conducted with experts in the field of education in order to verify indicators from both the questionnaires mentioned. With reference to personal interviews, the questionnaires and the literature study a curriculum model for wordprocessing was drawn up to be used during the training of commercial education students at technikons.
