Adult Learning Principles

As you roll out training for your workers, one thing that you have to take into consideration is Adult Learning Principles. Because you are training adults,  these principles assist in making training more effective for them.

Adult learners are:

  • Self directing – they have existing knowledge, experience and opinions. If they cannot appreciate the pupose or value, they will be reluctant to engage in the training
  • Relevance – The immediate use of the learning needs to be clearly understood by the learner. They need to see ‘what’s in it for them’
  • Experience – select case scenarios and examples that they can relate to
  • Using all of their senses – Adult learners need multi-sensory learning and teaching (Hands on activities )
  • Practice – The more an adult learner can practice new skills, the more transformational impact the training will have
  • Involvement – Adults need to feel as though they have a sense of responsibility, control and decision making over their learning

All training with NIYASH takes into account adult learning principles. We also offer accredited training courses along with in house training
