The assignment here presented tries to stress the importance of training and development in every business or organisation. As a starting point we will start with one of the many definitions that can be found on training.
Training is ‘a planned process to modify attitude, knowledge or skill behaviour through learning experience toachieve performance in an activity or range of activities. Its purpose, in the work situation, is to develop the abilities of the individual and to satisfy the current and future manpower needs of the organisation’ (MSC 1981, cited in Armstrong, 1999:507).
The evolutionary development of humans in their individual sphere, as in the group and institutional, is essential because education isconsidered the basis for development and improvement of people and society.
There are many definitions of learning as for example:
• Learning is about a change in behaviour.
• Learning is about the memorising and recall of information.
• Learning is about thinking, and organising your experience in your mind.
• Learning comes from your own experience and those of others.
Although the rate oflearning depends on individual factors, several principles are used to accelerate the learning process:
• Participation: Learning is often faster and more lasting effects when the learner can actively participate.
• Repetition: the repetition may allow more or less permanent traces in memory.
• Relevance: The learning becomes relevant if the material being studied has meaning and significance tothe person receiving the training.
• Transfer: a greater consistency of the training program with the demands of the job, it is faster in the process of mastering the position and tasks.
• Feedback: provides people with information on their learning progress.
At the moment in which competitiveness and business efficiency are elements of survival and define the future of organizations, theeffective use of policies for Training and Human Resources Development is becoming increasingly necessary. Training and development activities now seek to emphasize adaptability, flexibility and continuous development to ensure organisations can survive and compete in a competitive environment.
An increasing number of organizations are providing training and development opportunities to their employeesas they realize that it is a critical success factor in enabling the employees to contribute to the best of their potential.
As individuals we spend all our life learning from every type of sources and situations, then training and development in the workplace becomes also very important for us. Trough training employees can feel themselves more integrated in the organisation and therefore moremotivated.
This assignment is divided in three main parts. The first part consists in the description and analysis of the training session. Here it is explained how the practical training session was prepared, how the session went, the difficulties faced during the session and the feedback received by the person in charge of my evaluation which in this case was Ms O O’Doerthy.
The second partconsists in the explanation of some of the theory that has been written about the training process. The topics that have been described are: Training Needs Analysis, Training Plans, Methods of Training, Evaluation of Training and the importance of training in the workplace.
