Training & Development

Extracts from this document...


Training & Development In this section I will be identifying the key aspects of training and development programme an explanation of how this is an importance to Southgate college. Training & development Development involves helping an individual to realise his or her potential. This concerns general growth, and is not related specifically to the employees existing post. The term training means the gaining of a particular set of knowledge and skills, which can be applied to a particular job. Training programmes: most large organisations have their own or employee training officers to run training programmes for employees. They usually have a personnel or human resources staff administering them. Small businesses provide their own training or use training consultants and colleagues this could be expensive. Training and development is a way of tuning and priming the workforce to enable them to work at their very best. An employee needs to know how the company operates, what the plans are for the future and where they might fit in and how they intend to develop them to enable them to develop with your company. Types of training On- the job training involves instructing employees at their place of work (Southgate college) on how a particular task should be carried out. This may be done by an experienced worker demonstrating the correct way of performing a task, or by a supervisor coaching an employee by talking them through the job stage by stage. ...read more.


It is their job to make sure the staff at Southgate College are motivated, well trained and committed to the aims of the business. If these activities are not carried out the employees will not be motivated and only do the minimum work that is required then even if they do recruit the best person for the job if the person is not motivated and trained he/she will be unsuccessful in the college. The purpose of Human Resources at Southgate College is to be able to recruit, train and motivate staff for the organisation to be able to be run smoothly. Even experienced teachers at Southgate College get re-trained so that they can keep up with changes within the business. Performance Management Performance management includes activities to ensure that goals are consistently being met in an effective and efficient manner. Performance management can focus on performance of the organisation, a department, and processes to build a product or service, employees. The performance management process provides an opportunity for the employee and performance manager to discuss development goals and jointly create a plan for achieving those goals. Development plans should contribute to organisational goals and the professional growth of the employee. The planning process must also involve consideration of the emerging College environment. The Proposed Human Resource Management framework also underscores the vital role of education, training and development in the Colleges organisation. ...read more.


In performance management the employees will then be observed on how they are performing in their job, if they are in a satisfactory level they will be praised if they are above that they may get a pay rise. So as you can see these programmes interact together to achieve the best out of the employee. The way that motivational theories has an impact on Southgate College's training and development programmes and performance management is that when Southgate college trains and then observes the staff they and recording down information about their performance. From this they can award the staff with higher pay, if they are good the will be recognised for their good performance, to be granted additional responsibility this all comes under Herzbergs 2 factor theory. So by the college training staff they are then able to make them better at their job and also reward them for it. Performance appraisals are essential for the effective management and evaluation of staff. Appraisals help develop individuals, improve organizational performance, and feed into business planning. Formal performance appraisals are generally conducted annually for all staff in the organization. Both these approaches (hygiene and motivation) must be done simultaneously. Treat people as best you can so they have a minimum of dissatisfaction. Use people so they get achievement, recognition for achievement, interest, and responsibility and they can grow and advance in their work. This is what Southgate College hope's to gain from following Herzberg's 2 factor theory. ...read more.
