Government has long been one of the main creators and consumers of training. Perhaps it’s not surprising that this should make government supremely aware of both the failings and opportunities that exist in training.A switch to online learning is expected to save £90 million a year on training staff in the Civil Service alone. HMRC leads the way with the number of staff choosing to take e-learning courses. However, according to the National Audit Office, there is still plenty of room for improvement. The NAO wanted the HMRC’s spending on skills to be ‘linked explicitly to the organisation’s overall business objectives’, an observation that seems borne out by the low number of staff (only 38%) who felt that training had improved their performance.Work-based learning manages to address the problems of traditional and e-training because it helps you develop skills by tackling real problems in your day-to-day job. Especially relevant when implementing Agile and Lean ideas, as soon as a concept is presented, it's reinforced with a related activity to try out with your team. There's no need for lengthy or wasteful implantation plans, you test out a small idea and then reflect on the results. Staff and managers see immediate benefits and build skills from day one – at a fraction of the cost and with far lower risk than traditional training.Submit your details below to read the latest research paper on the pitfalls of traditional training and the benefits offered by work-based learning:
