The business conducts a training needs assessment appropriate to the size and scope of the business

What does this mean?

  • It is important that the business determines the actual needs of its employees with regards to training before conducting training that may not be relevant.
  • In order to do this effectively the business needs to do a training needs assessment on an annual basis.
  • The system could include a basic questionnaire for all employees and include the needs of the business itself, in terms of training that needs to be done to comply with standards or legislation.
