Develop Training recognises the need for modern training methods to be flexible, relevant and responsive whilst being available to support clients in managing their workplace training effectively.
Holistic approach to training
All our training courses are designed with Develop Training's Continuous Learning Loop (CLL) in mind. The CLL reflects a holistic approach to training, incorporating pre-course assessment, blended learning (involving classroom-based teaching, e-learning and practical 'hands-on' tuition) and post-course reinforcement. The approach does away with the flawed 'sheep-dipping' approaches to re-accreditation of the past.
There are three basis phases to the model:
- Pre-assessment: ensures that learners are appropriately matched to courses. This avoids the risk that learners are either over- or under-qualified. Develop Training's pre-assessment phase can be completed online, and is therefore fast, efficient and easily evaluated. In certain instances, learners can be provided with pre-course reading to bring them up to speed before training commences. In other instances, it may only be necessary for a delegate to retake an examination without undergoing training. This reduces workforce disruption and the cost of training to the business.
- Training: is delivered through a blended approach combining practical, online and classroom experiences. Develop differentiates itself from most other training providers by delivering a high proportion of 'hands-on' training, which is based on real world skills and situations.
- Post-training reinforcement: addresses the risk that, however good the training, knowledge can be quickly forgotten. At Develop, we're tackling this through the provision of post-learning reinforcement techniques. We believe these to be hugely important not only in ensuring knowledge retention, but also for our clients to better understand and measure the return on their investments.
