This tutorial specifically addresses the typical organisational requirements for designing and developing a TAS. This is captured in question 3 in your knowledge assessment. So, review the video and complete this question once you feel comfortable that you know the answers.
Engaging with Industry
Organisations may require regular consultation with industry bodies or employers to ensure training aligns with current industry standards and needs. For example, An organisation may require a bi-annual meeting with a panel of industry experts to review and update training content for their specific employee base. This is not laid out in any legislation of regulations, but rather exists as an organisational requirement given the sector and clients it operates with.
Safe and Inclusive Learning Environments
In any training organisation, there will be some form of mandate for risk assessments and implementing strategies for inclusivity, accommodating diverse learner needs and backgrounds. For example, They may Implement a policy where every training room must be accessible to learners with disabilities and equipped with emergency protocols.
Using Training and Assessment Templates
If you do a quick Google search, you’ll find numerous examples of standardised templates for training and assessment strategies that are used to maintain consistency and quality across the various courses that an organisation might offer. These have often been reviewed in audits and have therefore been accepted as a compliant standard for TAS documents.
Collaborating with Stakeholders
There may be a requirement for collaboration with internal and external stakeholders, including ways of gathering feedback, that may be used for evaluating and improving training strategies. For example, Organising quarterly feedback sessions with student representatives and trainers to gather input on the effectiveness of training strategies
Controlling Documents and Managing Records
Strict protocols for document management, including version control, are used to ensure accuracy and currency of training materials and records. This is led by compliance with standards and laws, but is often managed by the use of organisational procedures. For example, utilising a specific document management system that tracks changes, archives old versions, and controls access to training materials.
Gaining Required Approvals
These are the procedures for obtaining necessary approvals from regulatory bodies or internal committees or managers before implementing training strategies. For example, there may be a process where all new training programs must be reviewed and approved by a central education committee before being offered.
