Professional training is particularly anticipated by most employees. They will benefit from them as part of a promotion, to expand their skills in a targeted field of expertise, or even as part of career development in the medium term. Several aspects need to be taken into consideration in order to achieve good in-company training management. How can you efficiently schedule professional training programs? How can you have training sessions that run as smoothly as possible?
Managing the educational content of a training program
If they lack any relevant content, training programs simply cannot take place. The first task the training department needs to tackle is therefore properly designating those who will design the educational content of the training.
Training managers, operational employees, or even company managers may be eligible for this responsibility. A centralized collaborative dashboard piloted by the training manager can be made available to contributors so that at any time, each person can know if they need to come up with a training document, the topic to be dealt with, or the deadline for completing these document. The contributor will have dashboard editing rights so they can report any difficulties or the progress.
Thanks to real-time information, the training manager can take charge of training programs freely, including modifying ongoing topics or shifting sessions, if needed.
A successful training session | Logistics management
Training schedules need to be managed rigorously in order to optimize the training sessions.
A trainer’s availability is crucial, but so is the availability of those taking the training. If they are informed well in advance, those invited to the session can organize their calendars and make sure they attend. Indeed, low attendance rates by too many people may lead to canceled sessions. Once the time slots are set aside, the training manager needs to work on materials. What materials are needed for the training? A video projector or a paperboard? Are any of the rooms already equipped? If so, are they available during the training times? Who will be in charge of printing out paper materials (training slides, practical exercises, training provider scoring grids, etc.)?
All these elements need to be taken into consideration in order to ensure an optimal training session. They may be listed within a collaborative tool that can facilitate the logistic coordination of the training session. Every contributor will be in charge of gradually filling in these preparatory steps.
That way, the training manager can easily adjust the overall organization as time goes by.
Efficiently planning out intra-company training programs will reflect how serious a company is. Employees in the front line will show their satisfaction and relay this message to their professional ecosystem. Professional training is, therefore, an effective way to convey a positive image of your company to the outside world.
