About Course

This unit of competency focuses on the systematic process of training evaluation. It encompasses five key stages:

  1. Planning and Preparation: In this phase, you define the purpose and scope of the training evaluation, identify the necessary data and resources, create a timeline, and select and inform the relevant personnel and stakeholders.
  2. Data Collection: Here, you determine the techniques for collecting both quantitative and qualitative data, develop evaluation instruments, plan stakeholder engagement, and collect, collate, and store data according to organisational procedures.
  3. Data Analysis: This stage involves analysing the gathered data to identify training outcomes and their impact on industry capability. Cross-checking findings from different evaluation instruments, drawing conclusions about training effectiveness and efficiency, and documenting outcomes and improvement opportunities are essential tasks.
  4. Reporting: After analysis, you document issues, conclusions, and recommendations arising from the evaluation. Recommendations are made to stakeholders, preliminary findings are discussed, and a comprehensive evaluation report is produced and distributed.
  5. Review: The final stage entails reviewing the entire evaluation process to identify areas for improvement, not only in the process itself but also in one’s own evaluation practices.

This systematic approach ensures that training programs are effectively evaluated, and improvements can be made based on data-driven insights.

Course Content

Plan and prepare evaluation
Any evaluation must be properly planned. You must be clear about the purpose of the evaluation and what criteria will be used to determine outcomes. You will also need access to information and the assistance of experienced stakeholders. These factors must come together efficiently to achieve a successful review.

Collect and collate evaluation data
With the project plan prepared, and task roles and responsibilities allocated, the review process can begin. Initially this means gathering all relevant documents and information for evaluation. This may mean conducting interviews with staff and students, or simply getting together the learning and assessment strategies, assessment tools or policy and procedure manuals in line with the scope of the audit or review.

Analyse evaluation information and make conclusions
The information collected is only as good as the knowledge you are able to draw from it and the use to which that knowledge is put. This part of the process requires the use of analysis and interpretation skills to evaluate all the information gathered as well as the organisation’s management systems. The analysis of the documentation and systems is extremely important as far-reaching decisions could be based on the outcome of this process. It is vital, therefore, that the information you analyse is relevant, current and of sufficient quality and quantity.

Report on the conclusions and recommendations
The final part of the review process is the formal report on the findings of the evaluations undertaken. This report should then, ideally, form part of the organisation’s continuous improvement program. The report should include information on any breaches of compliance identified as well as suggestions for their rectification.
