Training Policy


I'm sure this subject has come up before.
I've been working on a diploma in T&D and the subject of training policies is certainly an area I would like to explore more. My department has no such policy and I can see the advantages of putting one into place.
The downside is I have no experience of implementing such a policy, although I recognise that it must be linked to the strategic goals. Also I understand that there must be a measurement in place too.

So what's my question? Can anyone help with providing examples or traiing policies for a department of around 250 staff and, can anyone give guidance on what pitfalls there are when trying to sell this concept to line managers....

It is for an office based environment by the way....

Thanks in advance
Darren Toms

  1. Evaluation
    I always start by looking at the results you want to create and how they can be measured. Try looking at Kirkpatrick evaluation model as a start. If you email me I’ll send you a word overview

  2. Standard Procedures
    If you care to email me I’ll send you a copy of a standard operating procedure for office-based staffs.

    You can either work backwards from SOPs to policies, since procedures implement policies, or work forwards by writing policies and then deciding how to implement them.

    This is a recurrent topic Darren. If you look through some of the older postings, there are various comments and contributors which might be of use to you.
