Then it should be UTF-8. Learning to do something in a non-Unicode code page and then redoing it for UTF-8 or UTF-16 merely leads to conversion problems, incompatibilities, and other nonsense.
If someone “needs” to not use UTF-16 for whatever reason, then they should use UTF-8. The “advanced” training should be the other non-Unicode code pages.
Teach them right the first time. They’ll never use a code page.
They'll never use a code page for encoding, I agree, but …
When setting up a requirement specification for a font manufacturer for a new font for Chinese (both simplified and traditional), Japanese or Korean,
there is no easy way to define the character repertoire without refering to the code pages like GB2312, Big-5, JIS, etc.
