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

Why do you need to conduct a training needs analysis? 

Why do we need training? 

Training is a means to ensure that employees have the knowledge and the right skills to be able to do their work effectively and compentently. 

Why should you conduct a TNA? 

  1. Avoids training for ‘training sake’ – trainees just go through the motions when they are disinterested in the training at hand . They do not feel it necessary if it is not relevant. 
  2. Supports cost effective training – no time and money wastage on irrelevant training and unskilled labour
  3. Targets the areas of greatest need

TRAINING NEEDS ANALYSIS ADDRESSES THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS: 

  • What training is needed and why?
  • Where is training needed?
  • Who needs training?
  • How will training be provided?
  • How much will training cost?
  • What will be the impact on business? 

The basic training needs assessment is a four step process:

  1. Identify a clear business goal that the training supports
  2. Determine the tasks the workers need to perform so the company can reach that goal
  3. Determine the training activities that will help the workers learn to perform the tasks 
  4. Determine the learning characteristics of the workers that will make the training more effective
