In a time when government is concerned with results in terms of investing in clients, it seems logical when staff training investments are made, that we look for results in achieving the desired learning objectives and transfer of skills to the job. Is it any wonder that we want to see tangible results when thousands of dollars are spent annually on staff training?

Since evaluation costs amount to a mere fraction of the cost of training, evaluation is a good learning investment. We also know that encouragement and support:

  1. Helps ensure staff will assess themselves against Canadian standards and guidelines for career development practitioners as per from the Canadian Career Development Foundation

  2. Strengthens core competencies: the knowledge, skills and attitudes all career practitioners need in order to deliver effective and ethical service. Professional Behaviour (Code of Ethics, Ethical Decision-Making, Commitment to Professional Development, Analytical Skills and Work Management).  Interpersonal Competencies (Respecting Diversity, Effective Communication, Productive Interactions with Clients). Career Development Knowledge. Needs Assessment & Referral

  3. Of learning is critical in order to determine whether knowledge and skill competencies are learned and transferred to the job

  4. Exercises can verify that identified learning needs have been met and thus provide a measure of accountability

  5. Helps to indicate the effectiveness of learning activities

  6. Of learning is consistent with recommendations from audit reviews
