But would your trainees agree with your marks? If you are the trainer you need to be good at it because you are responsible for making sure your message gets across to trainees.
Training is about: helping people to learn how to do something, telling people what they should or should not do, or simply giving them information. Training isn’t just about formal ‘classroom’ courses. Blended training delivery using Online Health and Safety Training and face to face is gaining momentum.
Getting Feedback: The best source of information about your training effectiveness is probably the feedback from the trainees themselves. It can sometimes be a humbling to gather feedback from staff – but it’s usually enlightening. To find out if trainees think you did a good job Don’t just check to make sure they are awake–consider the degree of participation, number of questions, and overall enthusiasm for learning what you’re teaching.
Observe trainees: during the session form your own perceptions about how receptive they are to what you’re trying to teach them. Immediately after the session, get them to write down their thoughts on your training efforts. You want them to be as honest as possible, so make the evaluation forms anonymous. Have them rate training information, activities, delivery, etc., on a scale of 1 to 5. If they give you less than a 5, the evaluation form should ask them to explain what it would take to get a 5.
