Competancy based training programme


Hi there

I am looking at developing our current induction/development programme for new employees.

What we have at present is a very robust two week induction which covers off everything they need to know to carry out their daily tasks/duties.

After this they return to their sites and it is up to the GM to develop them within their roles. This is where we fall short as they have no clear guidelines to follow.

What I want to implement is some form of skillbuilding programme that is completed in chunks to achieve competancy in each aspect of their job.

Have any of you implemented something similar? If you have any advise on how best to initiate this project I would appreciate any help!

Many thanks
Sinead Walker

  1. Self-directed flexible programme

    I have written a few induction programmes that involve a formal element, and then move onto a more informal ‘on-the-job’ programme. It really helps to balance the input between the individual, their manager and colleagues. As it is self-directed, totally flexible and with formal sign-off, it might be just what you are looking for.

    There is a more detailed description of what is involved on (click on ‘induction plus’) I think it is an excellent approach, so hope that it might work for you too.

    Good luck with it!
