WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This course is designed for all those who have responsibilities for planning or delivering training within the pharmaceutical, device or animal health industries, or study site. It will be ideal for those new to a training role as well as those who may wish to refresh and develop their existing skills.
Key objectives are:
- Understand the principles of training, how people learn and applying this to how you train
- Build your confidence in planning and designing training courses
- Understand how to carry out training needs analysis and how to develop a training strategy
- Consider how best to deliver and implement effective training
- Learn and share experiences of best practice training tips and techniques – making training easier and more effective
- Develop relevant methods to evaluate the effectiveness and value of the training
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
Training can play an important role in the success of your organisation and your employees. Effective training and support for all levels of employees results in lower turnover and higher productivity. In addition inadequate training is a common finding in FDA and EU inspections, so therefore it is essential in a GXP environment to ensure and document that staff are appropriately trained.
This intensive course will enable you to understand how to train others effectively through interactive discussions, exercises and practical examples. Participants will gain a comprehensive foundation in the skills to become effective at training pharmaceutical staff, whether giving a short or long training session/course, training individual members of the team, small groups or larger training sessions.
Using a proven and best practice framework for training, this programme will equip you with the confidence, skills, techniques and knowledge to design, deliver, evaluate, identify training needs and implement a successful training strategy in your role.
