Training Needs Analysis Template – TNA sample

Sample Training Needs Analysis Template

Often when starting out in training, managers are required to undertake a training needs analysis (TNA) on their people, however one of the hardest things to do in any job is start with a blank sheet. So here is one to get you started.

We have other articles on TNAs here at RapidBI however the basic process is:

  1. identify the core skills or competencies the organisation or department needs
  2. map each individual against those needs – i.e. how well do they currently perform against them
  3. prioritise needs
  4. identify training solution (in-house, open course, coaching etc)
  5. plan the training
  6. deliver the training
  7. provide on-the-job support to learn and develope the skills (you don’t expect the courses to do it all do youi?)
  8. conduct another TNA to chack the need has been met

The template:

Behaviour or competency Employee 1 Employee 2 Employee 3 Employee 4 Employee 5 Employee 6 Employee 7
Skill/Competency 1
Skill/Competency 2
Skill/  Competency 3
Skill/  Competency 4
Skill/Competency 5
Skill/Competency 6
Skill/ Competency 7
Skill/Competency 8
Skill/Competency 9
Skill/Competency 10
Total (H)
Total (M)
Total (L)
Average

Instructions/ Guide:

Identify the core skills/ competencies/ behaviours required for the population of employees you are conducting the needs analysis.

Then using the scale:

  • High (H) – effective at this
  • Medium (M) – some development needed
  • Low (L) – significant development needed
  • Not applicable (N) – for the role

Rate each person for each skill. This then gives you not only who need what, but the priority, Low first – Medium next.

A word version of this is available in our resource/downloads section

    This is a great temple. It is so important to have a process so that businesses can really benefit form the training that is taking place. This is great because it also shows us that each company or individual needs to focus on different skills.
