– identify and evaluate the areas of success and the areas requiring improvement opportunities
PHILOSOPHY & APPROACH:
Our approach is based on integration of learning. We believe that the additional knowledge, skills and experience gained by participants on our courses should be brought back to the workplace to benefit the individuals and the organisations. The programmes will give individuals the opportunity to learn more about themselves, and how to contribute more effectively to the company by whom they are employed.
It is intended that the training programmes will be participative, interactive and most importantly enjoyable. Learning should be fun and we try to make that happen. Learning objectives will be established with participants prior to, or on commencement of, the course. A range of methods will be incorporated to enhance the transfer of learning, to stimulate and hold interest, and to promote interaction and participation. The methods will take into consideration the topic to be covered and the most appropriate ways of transferring learning. They will also take account of different learning styles.
Proposed training methods will include:
Input or theory, through use of PowerPoint, Flipchart, Demonstrations, Video, Question & Answer sessions and/or case studies and role plays, as appropriate. Participant involvement will be ensured through discussion and related exercises.
Discussion – e.g. exploring issues, case studies and role plays (as appropriate).
Individual Tasks – Participants will be asked to complete relevant assignments during the sessions, and also between programme modules (as appropriate).
Group Tasks/Activities – Participants will participate in relevant exercises and activities during the programme.
On successful completion of this course each participant will receive a certificate of attendance from the Leinster Institute of Professional Development
