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