Training Program

Training Program

Order Description
Task
To develop an in-house program package to address the training and / or development need.
You are developing an entire program package, including all resources that would be needed
to operate, assess and evaluate the training program. All resources means those that the
trainer would use, and those that the trainees would see/use/receive. Hence, you need to be
realistic about the scope of the project that you select, and keep this to a manageable
level. Whilst it is hypothetically assumed that you will be training the program which you
develop, the program package needs to be finished to a level where any trainer could train the
program using the package that you have developed.
The training and development need can be any identified need that might support a group of
employees or members of an organisation/association relevant to your current / past
employment, or your chosen future career area.
Your program package (assessment submission) needs to include the following sections:
Organisation
� description of the organisation that has the need
Staff Cohort
� overview of the particular cohort of staff who have the need
Human Resource Development Need
� outline of the human resource development need
Program Objectives
� identification of the human resource development program objectives (just 2-3
objectives are sufficient)
Program Schedule
� table of how long the actual program takes to complete, and what the program
participants are doing during which parts of the program.
Resources
� the finished resources to train and undertake the program for the both the trainer and the
trainees.
Minimum Requirements: (a � f)
a) instructions for the trainer regarding what he/she should be doing, when, how and why
b) powerpoint slides for the program
c) a handout for the trainees to take away from the session
d) details of / resources for learning activities
e) resources to assess learning activities
f) a resource to evaluate program outcomes after the program back in the workplace
Learning Technologies
� overview of the learning technologies (if any) that are being used in the program and
how they are being used
Learning Theories
� discussion (minimum 500 words) of the applicable learning theories used in the
program, including when and how they are used in which parts of the program
Rationale
This assessment is designed to foster reflective thinking and collaborative professional
engagement.
This assessment task covers topics 6 � 12. The assessment builds on what was learned during
topics 1 � 5, and assessment item 2. Whilst topic selection is open, one of topics 13 � 14 may
potentially serve as a possible focus area of the training program you wish to develop,
although this is not mandatory. Alternatively you may choose to develop a training program
related to the skill development need that you have already identified in assessment item
2. This assessment has been designed to ensure that you are engaging with the subject
content and with other relevant professional organisations in your sphere of interest.
More specifically it seeks to assess your ability to:
– recommend suitable learning theories that can be utilised in specific organisational
environments
– design and evaluate a training and development program for a specific organisational
context
– contextualise evolving directions of training and development within Australian
organisational contexts, including emerging best practices
