    Training Needs Analysis and Programme Design

    Trainers delivering training in a business environment must be capable of identifying different

    job roles and associated behaviours. This module looks at the process of completing an

    effective training needs analysis, how to identify and analyse training requirements. The

    structure of programme design is addressed through establishing training objectives and

    how these can used to evaluate training effectiveness. A Training Needs Analysis is only

    effective if it is followed up by learning programmes that are relevant to the identified needsof the learner. This module provides a step by step framework taking you through the process

    in detail. Many training providers work with various certification bodies, this module also

    looks at how to ensure a programme conforms to these requirements.

    Preparing for Training Delivery

    Delivery and Assessment

    The success of any training session is largely due to preparation; this module looks at the

    planning process and how to apply training methods to ensure learning objectives are

    achieved. Trainers are often required to create exercises to enhance or consolidate learning;

    participants are guided through how to make these activities as effective as possible. This

    module also looks at the preparation of training tools, visuals aids etc.

    The presentation of the trainer and how they manage and interact with the training

    environment hugely contributes to how effective a training session is. During this module the

    key skills of establishing, promoting and maintaining a positive learning environment are

    discussed. Different training strategies are explored, how to demonstrate effective listening

    and feedback skills. During delivery trainers should be consciously monitoring and critiquing

    both trainers and learners achievement of the training objectives.

    Evaluation of Training

    In order to improve on any skill it is necessary to reflect on your existing skills and then work

    on improving them. Training evaluation is an important learning platform for the trainer.

    This module looks at the evaluation process, evaluating learner progress against the learning

    objectives and the training programme in its entirety. Methods of gathering input from learners

    during this process are described and opportunities for improvement in delivery are identified. T

    his process culminates in creating a programme improvement plan, providing participants with all t

    he tools for successful training evaluation.
