For example if a teacher is having difficulties with Business than s/he can take lessons outside the school to learn more skills on teaching that lesson. Off the job training for the Admin Admin might need help with working more accurately and on time and so going on a training course will help them with the work they are doing, so when they come back they will know more about how to deal with the problems when they arise and also work properly to meet deadlines set by the head of the department. On the Job Training This is when and trainer comes to the business to train a the head of department, teachers and the admin.

This is useful because they can still work while getting help from the trainer so he/she is still useful to the business. On the job training for Teachers The teachers might need help with using the interactive whiteboard and so another teacher can teach him/her on how to use it and s/he won't have to waste time training outside the school. This is also useful because the school won't have to spend too much money on training because they can tell other teachers to help each other.
