How do you design a training program?

At DLD, we begin designing a training program for your employees by first getting our expert  Instructional Designers on the job. Our Instructional Designers will first consult with you to conduct a learning needs analysis and find out what is required and how we can help. Once the learning needs and objectives are identified, then the next step is to begin designing and developing the training program and any accompanying instructional materials necessary for effective learning. We then work with you to implement the training program in your organisation.

What factors would you consider when designing the program?

At DLD, we think the key considerations when designing the program are the learning needs and objectives, consideration of learning styles, who the learners are and what they already know or don’t know, budget, delivery styles, content and timelines. Each of these considerations is important to establish early on so that our Instructional Designers have the full picture when designing training and development programs. This also ensures that you a receiving a training program design that meets all of your needs.

What are the types of employee training?

There are many options when it comes to employee training. At DLD, we work with you to determine the best option for your training needs. Employee training can designed for face-to-face or online delivery, blended learning, or via eLearning.

At DLD, our eLearning is efficient, effective and engaging. It incorporates responsive design, interactive elements such as labelled graphics and scenarios, and incorporates assessments and quizzes.

What is the best training method for employees?

At DLD, it’s important that we work with you to establish the most efficient training method for your needs. We take what we know about adult learning principles and apply them when designing and developing training programs for employees. We believe that purposeful, interactive and targeted learning experiences work best. We create opportunities for learners to be curious and learn more, participate in interactive activities, apply their knowledge, and check their knowledge through meaningful assessments.
