Training needs


Sorry to bother you all. I am wanting to perform a TNA across the company and thought there might be some kind folk out there who has a template. Thought this is worth a try as don't want to re invent the wheel. I want this TNA to be performed across the all departments of the business.
Thank you very much

  2. TNA templates
    Hi Stephen
    Are you looking at a generic template for all to complete or are you looking at a range of templates for different parts of the organisation (i.e. senior managers, professionals, semi-skilled etc?).

    Who are you expecting to complete or to use the template – Training specialists, Line Managers or individual employees?

    While using one template is easy to interpret it makes the education task more difficult.

    There are many books which contain useful TNA templates and these include:
    Identifying Training Needs – Gray
    The trainers desk reference – Moss
    The skills of training – Rae
    Gower handbook of T&D
    The managers book of checklists – Rowntree

    Alternative information is available at

    I have a range of TNA forms and a guide to TNA available on my website or are also available to download at trainerbase.

    When conducting an organisational wide TNA it is important to consider HOW you will manage the data you get back. Whatever form you use please consider how you will interpret this and how long it will take.

    In addition one common mistake made when completing TNA’s is to manage staff expectations – often because they have seen a training need put on a form they believe they will get training, and to them training means attending a course!

    I have use web or intranet based TNA processes in the past which are very effective and can be deployed quickly (the data interpretation can be quick too!)
