Identifying Training Needs

Course Overview

Perhaps one of the most important regions within the operating process of a business is determining the competence and capability of the workforce, and identifying how development can fill the gap. Not only do you need to identify what people can’t do, but you also have to prioritise each need. Additionally you have to have a close eye on the future and determine what skills are required to meet future strategic and organisational needs. Finally, you have to create a strong business case to convince the budget holder that this is a good investment of both time and money.

The GBS Training Needs Analysis course is for those who need to identify training needs within a department or organisation, prioritise these needs and be able to devise and deliver the business case to the relevant parties.

Please note, this course can be delivered as virtual instructor led training (VILT), face to face, or it can be delivered with a blend of both formats. We will customise the content and duration in line with your learning and development requirements.
