Bespoke In-house Training

One of the major benefits of in-house training is the flexibility it offers. Frequently, organisations seek to implement bespoke training to address their specific business needs. The design of your company’s training program will depend on multiple factors. Generally, these include organisational size, number of trainees, number of trainers, facilities available, and the desired outcomes of the training. We at the Training Centre have created and delivered both bespoke and approved training courses to a large number of our commercial clients over the years. We have also assisted in creating internal training programmes for onboarding, annual refresher training, customer service training and many many more.

If you are considering the delivery of training onsite, we have put together the following helpful guide to assist you in determining ther best route forward. Here are some key points to consider:

Needs Assessment

In order to successfully design an In House Training program you will firstly need to carry out a Training Needs Assessment. Important questions to consider are; does your company need a one-off or regular training program, and what key issues would this training aim to improve?

Design a Toolkit

In House Training materials can take many forms, including; presentations, seminars, workshops, regular assessment, exams, and so on. To design a successful In House Training program you need to decide what you will include in your toolkit, what resources you need to develop these tool, and who will oversee this process?

Validate Your Training Program

Before rolling out a new In House Training program on a large scale, or to new employees, validate the training program. You can use current employees as a focus group, or use a small number of new employees in a pilot program. Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the new In House Training program with a small group; then make any necessary changes to the program at this initial stage.

Train The Trainers

With any new training program, it is important that the trainers who will be delivering the In House Training are fully equipped to do so. In other words, use experienced trainers and facilitators. This might require prior training from in house HR managers, or even an external trainer to assist with the initial trainer training and set up.

How To Structure Inhouse Training

Implementing a thorough Training Needs Analysis will highlight how to structure your In House Training program. As a result, the structure will vary depending on what type of training you need to deliver, and how much time and resources are available. For example, do you need employees to take a formal assessment, or is on-the-job training more appropriate? Therefore, avoid the potential disadvantages of in house training, by considering these five important points.

When deciding on how best to structure your In House Training program consider:

Time

Realistically how much time do you have to train your employees? Do you need them to be ready to start work within one week, or you aiming for long-term development? Once you know how much time you have available, you will then be able to structure your training program to accommodate this. If you only have a short period of time available consider a more intense and compact training course.

Resources

Furthermore, do the resources you have available fit with the type of training you want to deliver? Consider what kind of budget you need to deliver the training, how many staff will be involved, and whether you need to gather specific resources before training can begin.

Premises

Where are you going to deliver your training? Consider what kind of space you need, whether it will be a class room or computer suite, or even an open space. Are there restrictions on where you can deliver your training that will make certain planned activities difficult or even impossible?

Numbers

Importantly, how many people will the training be delivered to? Consider whether you need to structure in multiple training sessions to accommodate larger numbers with multiple trainers. Does the style of training restrict the numbers? For example, does each trainee need individual supervision?

Trainers

Once you have identified who will be delivering the employee training, consult with the trainers about the training structure itself. Usefully, an experienced trainer will be able to offer key insights into how best to structure the desired learning outcomes for the program.
