The aim of this workshop is to develop and refine the skills of on-the-job trainers to ensure a more effective learning experience for your people.
Ensuring all team members have the skills and knowledge to do their jobs effectively is a critical organisational requirement. However, frequently the job of training others is put into unskilled hands – resulting in poor outcomes in terms of service, productivity, compliance and quality.
