Training is a set of a systematic processes designed to meet learning objectives related to trainees' current or future jobs. These processes can be grouped into the following phases; needs analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. The phases are sequential, with the outputs of the previous phases providing the inputs to those that follow. Figure 1 depicts the phases and their relationships. Training delivery methods consist of the techniques and materials used by trainers to structure learning experiences. Different training delivery methods are better or worse at achieving various learning objectives. During the design phase (see Figure 1) the different methods are examined to determine their appropriateness for the learning objectives. Once appropriate methods have been identified, they are applied to the training plan in the development phase.
In June 2009, SMDC launched the Trainers of Trainers programme for building the capacity of the sector in different areas related to microfinance. Participants from banks, NGOS, associations, consultancy firms and the private sector have received training in various aspects of microfinance.The SMDC held a trainings events session for one basic reason: to get information and skills to people who need them. However, there are a lot of other "extra" advantages to delivering a training session. Some of them include:
- Improve organizational morale. Holding a training session can brighten spirits in your organization by increasing the satisfaction employees and/or volunteers feel with their work. Learning to run a training can be a terrific confidence builder for people who don't have a lot of experience in managing group projects. One reason that this is true is because the results of running a training session are so tangible -- organizers can watch people learn and gain confidence with their skills. Also, if attendees fill out evaluation forms at the end, organizers have almost immediate feedback on their strengths and weaknesses.
- Holding training sessions can make your organization more effective. This can happen in several ways. First, if the training (at least in part) is for staff or volunteers involved with your organization, you'll see immediate benefit as they get better at what they do. If the training also includes other community members who are not directly involved with your organization, the attendees will learn more about your cause and your organization -- and they might even decide to sign on as volunteers! Finally, a good teacher (or facilitator) always learns from his or her students. So if the trainer or trainers has/have an ongoing relationship with the organization (for example, if they are employees, or if they always run trainings for your group), they might very well learn things they can use to help the organization in other ways. So, delivering a training session truly can be a situation where everyone wins.
- Increase community awareness. Finally, your training can be directed (at least in part) towards the general public.This can help increase awareness of your organization and your cause -- a definite side benefit that can occur as you try to increase community members' competence on a given subject.
