A vocational training course or other training can support people to improve their knowledge, skills & experience specific to the workplace.  I have experience of delivering a variety of subjects / levels, including accredited and non-accredited courses.


Training for success

Training & Development can be very successful if delivered right. This means being clear about what the results are, and what is considered to be achievement. The end assessment will determine whether the results have been achieved but the real benefits of an employee should be seen as a progression.  My preference it to see the development of people in the workplace through linking workplace activites to the training they have received.

Staff development refers to programmes of training or continuing education to employees, helping them with their own professional growth.  Organisations that support staff development will benefit from having employees with greater skills and deeper expertise.

It is sometimes useful to understand various models but the PEFORM MODEL is one model that can be used to give a good focus for the successful development of people:

  • P – Potential
  • E – Expertise
  • R – Results
  • F – Focus
  • O – Opportunities
  • R – Resources
  • M – Motivation

There are details below identifying the benefits to an organisation and to an individual.


The benefits are:

  • Increased job satisfaction and morale among staff
  • Increased staff motivation
  • Increased efficiencies in processes, resulting in improved performance
  • Increased capacity to adopt new methods of working
  • Increased innovation in strategies and products/services
  • Reduced employee turnover
  • Enhanced company image
  • Risk management, eg sexual harassment, diversity, safeguarding


The benefits are:

  • New skills and knowledge can be acquired, enabling them to improve
  • Existing skills and knowledge can be enhanced or updated, enabling them to improve
  • Development areas can be addressed or mechanisms put in place to support them
  • Improvements in confidence, capability and competence
