Determining your learning and development needs
You will have identified a number of workforce needs, including building up the capability of existing and new staff to undertake the work you need them to do.
There are many ways to address any competency and skill gaps that you have identified. These may include in-house training courses, external training courses, conferences and events, national qualifications, e-learning, self-directed learning, secondment, coaching and mentoring.
Training is a great way of addressing performance and skill gaps. Engaging in a training cycle with your staff will ensure they develop where it is most beneficial for them and for the business. Training is good for business when it strongly supports business requirements. When a business has identified its skill requirements and is considering opportunities to train and upskill staff, there are a number of options to consider.
