Training Needs Analysis Toolkit
This best selling Training Needs Analysis Toolkit enables you to
identify the skills required within your business, its teams and
individual roles. It shows you how to assess current skill
levels, identify gaps and plan training activity to meet the
identified needs. The toolkit is designed to assess training
needs across people, computer and technical skills. To help you
assess people skills objectively, it even includes a generic list
of people skills and behavioural indicators. This toolkit helps
to make one of the hardest of training management tasks easy,
efficient and effective.

Many training providers will willingly charge a day rate of
1,000 pounds and beyond, however easytrain, using the low cost
airlines as its influence, has set about providing a days training for
275 pounds (plus VAT) per day, irrespective of where the client is.
A lower daily rate does not mean lower quality; we currently have
