Training Needs Assessment

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough we must do.

- Goethe

Relevant and effective learning is the key in meeting the organization’s strategic goals and directions. Therefore it is important for HR practitioners to be able to identify the key learning programs required to meet the organization gaps and competencies. A structured and systematic approach in identifying training needs of the staff and department will greatly contribute to bridging the gaps and competencies of the various staff roles.
