Our four-part blog series exploring the best training solution for your team/organisation concludes today. You may have already read part to three which covered on-site, scheduled and e-learning training solutions. In each part our team weighed up the pros & cons of each solution and offered guidance on which solution may suit each need. You may wish to download our free decision-making support!
In this final part of the series we’re going to explore how a training package could support an organisation.
What is a training package?
A training package (or passport) typically combines a blend of course types, delivery formats and other services to provide a custom training option. Using a suite of solutions training can be provided to individuals, teams or a whole organisation. This could be an e-learning introduction, followed-up by a role-based on-site class to embed company culture and values which is later enhanced with attending a scheduled class to add a deeper dive into a specific subject or skill which perhaps is in lower demand or only required for a few identified individuals.
Often organisations share their demand plan with a provider who will design a delivery plan which fits the needs and levels of training required. Identifying when on-site training would be more beneficial than scheduled training, supporting creation of training materials, managing logistics and informing/monitoring spend to budget.
Advantages & Disadvantages
The pros & cons discussed in the previous blogs all apply here but a training package has the added benefit that your demand plan can be scrutinised by an external team who can identify best delivery solutions – if you need to train in bulk, if you have core messages that need to be delivered, if you’d like teams to complete a foundational understanding before they deep dive.
Important reasons that an organisation may decide to use a training package approach:
- Value for money
- Simplified delivery
- Blended approach with add-ons
