The programme was called Learning for Growth, and the benchmark for average learner improvement after every workshop was set at 20%. In order to measure performance pre and post workshop, an effective, accurate assessment tool was needed and the level 3 behavioural assessment tool (Excel Evaluate) from Excel Communications was selected. Excel Evaluate is an evaluation tool that quickly and simply allows the measurement of people’s performance and assesses changes in behaviour, as a result of training or coaching. By tailoring the behavioural indicators to reflect your goals, you can evaluate the impact of training on people’s performance. 

What Did It Entail?

Learning for Growth was launched; a pan-European programme that includes a 3-tier instructor-led development programme. There were a total of 40 programmes and on average between 500 and 600 personnel attend these workshops every year.
