Are you feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information you are surrounded with? You are not alone! Welcome to my course Learning Needs Analysis – a step-by-step practical guide to collecting and analysing the learning needs of your organisation.My name is Irina Ketkin and I have been a Learning and Development practitioner since 2011.This course is part of a series in Advanced Learning and Development and it focuses on a step-by-step guide L&D practitioners can follow to assess the current and future learning needs of their organisations.This course is for anyone responsible for developing other people in the context of an organisation but isn’t sure how to understand the needs and provide learning solutions to fit those needs. If you are an HR expert or L&D practitioner then this course is for you. It can also be useful to freelance trainers and development consultants by helping them measure the clients’ needs in an objective and systematic way.By the end of the course you will be able to explain to your stakeholders the process and the steps required to perform a Learning Needs Analysis, distinguish among various different ways to collect data, analyse it to fit your needs and then present your findings and recommendations. If you follow along with every step of the process, you will end up with a comprehensive learning needs analysis report that you can then present to your stakeholders and get their buy-in.Watch a selection of the preview videos to get a feel for what the course is like.
