Strategic Training Needs Analysis

Introduction

In response to the changing ways in which education is delivered for Health Care Practitioners, along with increasing onus on employers to provide and or find education, the Professional Educational Department along with Learning and Development have been tasked to develop a clear and robust process to enable clinical managers to indentify their training requirements. These must meet corporate objectives and targets, service delivery and the professional development of their workplace.

To ensure that the training requirements are accurate and responsive to the changing needs of the organisation, the training plan for each clinical area will follow a one year cycle alongside the NHS Annual Cycle Plan.

It is envisaged that once the training needs for an area are identified, managers will use the appraisal process to map the training requirements against staff who require development.

To support managers in identifying their training requirements for the year, Professional Education have developed a demand forecast sharepoint site and this will contain all the required resources to support managers.

To enable clinical managers to determine the specific skills required, we have developed a Ward Profile. This needs to be completed and stored on Sharepoint at http://glnt313/sites/stna/default.aspx  It should be noted that only members of staff who have been given permission to use this site will be able to gain access.

Overview of Training Plan

In order to identify the over-arching training needs of any clinical area, the training plan will be sub- divided into three key areas for the clinical manager to identify; these are defined as:

Corporate Training Requirements

Service Delivery Training Requirements

Continuous Professional Development for the Individual
