An essential feature of the training process is the measurement of the effectiveness of that training. This qualification is designed to enable you to do just that. Initially we focus on why we assess the effectiveness of training and what we mean by effectiveness. We consider performance and assessment techniques and look at their validity as well as how to select specific techniques.
In short, the aim of this qualification is to help you to plan, implement, review and act upon assessment of training plans, programmes and activities.
