Professional development is a vital aspect of any company’s investment into human capital; giving employees the tools they need to improve and learn new skills can bring a slew of long-term benefits for businesses. However, not every organization is equipped to provide training or perform curriculum development on its own. Lewis-Price & Associates, Inc. offers various services to our federal partners, including curriculum development and professional coaching. Here are some curriculum development tips to help your team make the most of customized training programs.
Start with a Clear Set of Goals for Curriculum Development
While it may be tempting to start your curriculum development journey by exploring the different tools and programs available, it can be incredibly helpful to examine your training goals prior to this process. What are your company’s long-term goals? How would you like to improve your workforce? Which areas need improvement? If your team struggles to share information effectively, for example, you may consider developing a training program that emphasizes communication, scheduling, and documentation best practices. Training your staff members in these specific areas can help your office run more smoothly and minimize miscommunication.
Determine Levels of Employee Proficiency and Identify Gaps
Once you and your team have identified areas of improvement, determine where your team stands in terms of its proficiency in those areas. For example, while some staff members may have an introductory understanding of cybersecurity concepts, others may be prepared to study more advanced topics. Work with curriculum development professionals to identify gaps between your employees’ skill levels and where you would like them to be after undertaking a custom training program.
