Introduction

Introduction Ben Sherman is the official British clothing company. The Ben Sherman clothing designs feature the "effortless cool," look, with designs featuring the logo and colors of the British Royal Air Force, often called the mod target.

In house training is used in situations where there is a need for most staff to learn. It may be moderated with changes in legislation, changes to internal procedures, and changes in documentation or as a result of a decision to train all members of staff to a certain level. External training can take many forms: short courses for specific topics; longer courses at colleges, universities and private companies; and colleges, universities and private providers.

Middle

Problems-based learning(PBL)is a means of delivering courses where student activities are centered around a series of problems or scenarios. Students acquire subject knowledge and skills through the staged sequence of problems, which are often presented within a professional context, rather than through the direct transfer of knowledge often seen in traditional teaching. PBL in export/import allows students the opportunity to work on a simulated real-life design brief. In doing so, they are challenged by a wide range of issues relating to a number of key professional skills. Identify any relevant professional or formal qualifications that may be relevant to staff The Institute of Export is the professional membership body representing and supporting the interests of everyone involved in importing, exporting and International trade. They offer a unique range of individual and business membership benefits as well as a world renowned suite of qualifications and training.

Conclusion

For instance, the continuing professional development (CPD) programmes. CPD is a continuous process of personal growth, to improve the capability and realize the full potential of professional people at work. This can be achieved by obtaining and developing a wide range of knowledge, skills and experience which are not normally acquired during initial training or routine work and which together develop and maintain competence to practice. There are a number of reasons why an organization might want to encourage staff to undertake CPD. They are developing professional knowledge and skills. Place a condition on continuing membership of a professional body. Demonstrate professional standing to clients and employers. Assist with career development or a possible career change. Whichever of these applies most, there is a growing imperative placed upon all practitioners to maintain professional competence through a systematic process of CPD. New technology, new methods of working, legislative changes, the emergence of new industries and even professions define the need for constant updating of knowledge and skills in order to maintain professional competence. Summary This report is about training. It is essential to give staff opportunities to train. It is also necessary to train staff in order to maximize their contribution to the Ben Sherman Clothing Company. In the export business, there are constant challenges. Staff need to be sensible with all types of changes and strategies for maximizing trade.
