Task
This assessment requires you to design and develop an in-house training program to address the training and / or development need that was identified from the Needs Assessment in Assessment 2. As a minimum, you will need to include the following information:
Organisation
• A brief description of the organisation; and
• explain the importance of the training and/or development need that was identified.
Participants
• Identify participants;
• an explanation of the cohort of who need to participate in the program; and
• how would the participants (and the organisation) benefit from the program.
Program Plan
• A detailed plan based on your choice of learning theories;
• program objectives (no more than four objectives) and the learning theories that underpin your design;
• schedule and planned activities;
• method of delivery;
• instructions for the trainer, and
• feedback / evaluation.
Resources Required
• outline all the resources required that would facilitate design, implementation and evaluation of the program's success or failure;
• list of hand outs, notes and/or powerpoints or other material for trainees;
• technologies required;
• location;
• staff; and
• what do you think it will cost.
Possible Barriers
• management support;
• perception and participation;
• finance; and
• conflicting priorities.
Please be realistic about the scope of the project that you select, and keep this to a manageable level. Whilst it is hypothetically assumed that you will be the trainer of the program, it needs to be develop at a level where any trainers could easily understand and used it for training purposes. You should also explain and justify your choice of various learning theories used to design the program.

• Recommend suitable learning theories that can be utilised in specific organisational environments;
• design and evaluate a training and development program for a specific organisational context; and
• contextualise evolving directions of training and development within Australian organisational contexts, including emerging best practices.
This assignment is designed to assess learning outcomes:
• be able to design and evaluate a training and development program for a specific organisational context; and
