|The purpose of training is to produce timely, cost-effective and efficient learning tailored to individual and organisational learning needs. Planning for effective training needs to identify learning needs that can be met by training solutions. Appropriate programmes for learning must then be constructed from the variety of approaches on offer, and systems and processes put in place to support learning and encourage the transfer of learning into effective performance.
Participants will identify the focus for exploration of issues in this process in relation to a range of organisational settings. The course will explore programme design, development, delivery and evaluation - with consideration of resource requirements for these activities.
