Staff Training
Induction trainingEvery job has to give induction training as preparation for the job.
  • Induction training gets the trainee used to the atmosphere of the job they're going to have.
  • Induction training gets trainees used to the people they're going to be working with.
  • Induction training advises the trainees of the strict health and safety methods used.

On-the-job trainingThis is the most common form of training.
Generally most cost-effective.
Employees are actually productive.
Opportunity to learn whilst doing.
Training alongside real colleagues.
Quality depends on ability of trainer and time available.
Bad habits might be passed on.

Potential disruption to production.

Off the job training
  • People learn away from your job.

Common off-job-training methods include:
  • Day release (employees take time off work to attend a local college center).
  • Distance learning/evening classes.
  • Sandwich courses; where employees spend a large amount of time away (e.g. 6 months) before returning to work.
  • sponsered courses and self study.
