Training needs analysis


I want to devise a general needs analysis questionnaire and would like to get hold of some examples in order to get a feel for the design and style of question. Although many questions will be company specific I am sure there will be a range of questions around that will apply to any workplace and have been well tested.

  1. Example Training Needs Analysis
    I’m in exactly the same boat as Tony, does anyone out there have examples that can be used as a base model.

    As I work within the Insurance industry, predominantly with Lloyd’s anything along those lines would be really useful..again as with Tony, much of the TNA would be client specific, and will be modified each time.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, and will make my headaches go away…
