TRAINING CYCLE/ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Describe what your roles and responsibilities are at each stage of the training cycle and explain what your boundaries are as a teacher
The training cycle consists of four stages
1. Training need
This is the initial stage of the training process. As a trainer/teacher I would require to identify the needs of the student/class. This would be to ensure that the direction of instruction is specific to their requirements. What is their role. What are they expected to do with the new knowledge. Is it being given at the correct time for their developmental needs.
I would to do this by setting up initial assessment. Completion of pre course questionnaire. Enrolment/information sheet. In my role of Motorcycle instructor this would have taken place in a pre course assessment ride during which a face to face evaluation of their riding history would have taken place. All of this would identify to me their present knowledge and future learning requirements and enable me to structure the training correctly. I would be restricted in this area by the need to ensure there is adequate resources to give the training identified and that it meets the constraint of costings.
This part has to be systematic and consistent. This can be achieved by having set aims and objectives. Decide what learning method is best suited to the student/class. Use of visual aids (flip charts, power point), discussions or involvement by participation (kinaesthetic). I would ensure that the content takes the student through from simple to complex learning. Build in assessments. This will allow me to check and monitor progress of delivery but also allow a check of knowledge. As a result a lesson plan would be formulated. I would consider the implications of costs, not only monetary but time as well. Does the design/plan fit within...
