  1. Identifying individual learning needs

    Hi Scott,

    I have already been involved in a similar project with ‘Scottish National Heritage’.
    The project involved identifying the most relevant information, resources and advice that would identify an individuals competence.

    If you would like the details of this project, please drop me a line.

  2. Useful Web Sites

    Here are also a few web sites connected with ITN which might prove useful and time saving:
    A general overview of the process with ideas and suggestions
    A very brief and very basic intro to the subject.
    Apparently a free web based system for ITN.
    A fantastically detailed web site focussing on repertory grid interviews which can be highly productive in determining training needs. There’s a section explaining this.
    A case study of how an ITN was undertaken for Mid Wives and Health Visitors. Fascinating and informative as a ‘how to’ case study.
    A downloadable TNA questionnaire from the Herriot Watt University up in Scotland. A great starting point for anyone want to develop their own.
    A great gateway portal to loads of useful material on ITN. Super.
    An interesting site with quite a few links to methods and systems. A good source.
    An excellent overview with some detail of the process if TNA/ITN.
    Not a great deal of info, but a gateway to other data.
    An excellent article which describes processes and some of the pitfalls.
    A bizarre page which makes an allegory of menus and ITN/TNA.
    A page on job analysis.
    An article on needs analysis and the internet.

  3. Easy ways to identify individuals competency
    I work for an organisation that has developed an online tool designed specifically to assist with identifying competencies of individuals teams etc. I would be happy to share the information if you would like to drop me a line.
