Training programmes allow you to combine training of all types into a structured order. Creating a training programme enables you to assign all of the required training to a trainee, releasing it only when they have the required knowledge. Training programmes also provide a good overview of the progress of your trainees.
Training programmes can be used for many purposes, however the most common of these is in the onboarding or induction process. The primary reasons for this are to introduce the trainee to your company's procedures and ensure that they meet any compliance requirements before becoming a fully fledge employee. Training programmes can also be useful for specific job roles, adding specialised knowledge to the employee's general company background.
The ability to report on an employee’s progress allows you to see who is progressing and who is struggling. Identifying individuals who are not engaging in training activity means that you can proactively discuss any issues they may be having helping you to retain staff.
