Proposal for Designing a Training Program

Introduction

[ Imagine you are a training consultant and you’ve been asked to create a training program for 20 employees for the course of two days. In this section of your paper, simply summarize in a paragraph or two which company you are choosing to complete for this assignment. This can be the same company you chose for Assignment #1 or an imaginary company. Be sure to state the purpose of the training for your company and how this training will help solve the problem for your small business. Then summarize (in one to two sentences) what you will be discussing throughout your paper.]

Two Day Training Program

[In this section, simply provide the training need for the group of employees. Understanding the gap in performance is key for selecting the right training. Then summarize how your two-day course will be used to help solve the problem. This section of the paper should only summarize the two-day training and the rest of the paper will provide more details of the training.]

Training Needs Analysis

[This section requires you to complete a training needs analysis (TNA). First identify the gap in performance for this small group of individuals and then use the issues to create a training program that can be used to correct the problem. Think about what triggered the training to take place and how can your training program help to get performance back on track. Ask yourself, “who is the training intended for specifically and how they should be trained?” Be sure to identify two to three training needs through the training needs analysis and justify an approach for this training. Refer to chapter 4 for details in completing the needs analysis.]

Training Objectives

[Training objectives are important when developing your design section of your training proposal. This section of your paper requires you to identify an objective to cover during your training course. Think about what you want your participants to learn and retain once they complete your training. Chapter 5 explains how to create an objective. A good objective has three components: desired outcome, conditions, and the standards. It also uses adjectives to describe what the learner will gain from the training. For example, a training objective could read, “identify the steps of effective customer service”. Take this into consideration when building your objective(s) for this training program. Again, see Chapter 5 for details.]

Training Cost

[Use this section to determine the training cost for the training program you are proposing. Include a detailed breakdown of time allotted for each piece, the subsequent cost analysis, and the total cost for the project as a whole. When determining the cost, consider any travel, location, meals, a trainer, and materials required for a successful training. If this is a computerized training or eLearning, what would the cost be for a curriculum designer to create the training? Be detailed and specific for this area.]

Training Methods

[This section should identify the training method(s) to deliver the program to employees, such as an e-Learning module or a face-to-face training program. You could also use a blended learning approach. Justify why you selected this training method and use research to support your answers. See Chapters 6 and 7 for additional details concerning training methods.]

Proposed Training Agenda

[Use this section to create an agenda of activities for the training program. During the agenda, include modules of learning and be sure your agenda reflects the learning objectives for the participants.]

Summary

[Use this section to summarize the paper and highlight how the training will be designed to help resolve the problem for the expected audience. What strategies were used to design the training?]
