Effective Training and Development
Effective training and development is an imperative aspect in human personnel management as it ensures that employees are equipped with suitable qualifications (both academic and professional skills). This means that employees can perform their duties effectively and be evaluated through performance appraisal to determine their weaknesses and strengths. The UK government has put in place various training programs that place an emphasis on lifelong learning and continuous development (Barrow, 2003, p.97). A focus will be placed on Qualification and Curriculum Authority (QCA) and National Vocational Qualifications in this document by highlighting their effectiveness in personnel training and development. The significance of involving the modern apprenticeship schemes in vocational training of employees in the UK will be stated as well as their role in imparting skills in employees so as to attain varied business and organizational goals. The scope of this project report is to ascertain the significance of QCA and NVQs introduced in the UK market and then make recommendations on the best strategies to be used so as to attain long term visions.
