Training Needs Analysis

Identifying training needs can be a difficult task that requires sensitivity. As an external company, Industrial Technology Systems Ltd’s (ITS) training team is in a good position to see beyond the immediate issues and can give a better insight into what is needed to achieve the maximum benefit. Our experience in many industries makes us aware of the strengths and weaknesses of individuals, the capabilities of departments and the skills and aptitudes needed for business growth.

ITS’ Training Needs Analysis Services are designed to identify employee skill gaps within your organisation. ITS’ team use a number of data gathering techniques including:

  • Employee questionnaires
  • Short employee interviews
  • Customer feedback
  • Observations
  • Presence at meetings
  • Inspection of training records and SOPs
  • Evaluation of training provided

Following the data gathering stage,  the data will be analysed and ITS will produce a Training Needs Analysis Report, highlighting the company’s objectives and skills requirements to meet the corporate goal. The report will identify individual training requirements and the most suitable training methods to maximise the training results for each individual. The report will also provide an evaluation of previous training events, both internal and external, and an analysis of the company’s Standard Operating Procedures. The Training Needs Analysis Report will conclude with a recommended training plan.

If you are anxious about skills imbalance or your company’s ability to exploit new opportunities then talk to ITS’ Training Needs Analysis Team. We are dedicated to identifying the best training solutions to maximise company performance.

Learning Transfer in the Workplace

Training activities should benefit both the individual and the company, and well managed training includes an assessment of this benefit. This assessment is vital in determining maximum value for your investment and is important in regulated industries as cGMP requires that ‘…its practical effect should be periodically assessed.’

ITS' end-of-course action plans are just the first stage in ensuring that the learners apply their skills and knowledge in their working environment. ITS can also provide practical guidance onsite and the following services, to ensure that the trainee uses the skills and knowledge where it matters most in the workplace:

  • Assist or develop work-based managers, supervisors etc. in mentoring and assessing skills
  • Develop action plans and regular evaluations with mentors and learners to ensure that action occurs
  • Provide guidance and support to identify suitable assessment criteria for the learner in critical areas in their workplace i.e. ensure that the learner is competent before independent working on the task is allowed
  • Assist in or actual development of work-based assessors and assessment (skills and knowledge testing)
  • Development of suitable role competencies

Whatever requirements you have, ITS will ensure that any work carried out will be dealt with privately and confidentially. If you have a requirement not listed above please contact us to discuss your needs further.
