Create your own Training Plan/Matrix
A Training Plan (or training chart as they are sometimes called) is a tool that can be used to track training and skill levels within an organization.
A training plan/matrix has a variety of uses from supporting gap analysis between required and actual knowledge levels and also tracking competency levels. When used as a visual management tool, the matrix can identify, at a glance, individual skill levels and weaknesses within the department.
To enable Construction Employers to create their own Training Matrix, CITB-ConstructionSkills NI have developed a template and we would encourage employers to tailor the template to suit your own company and employee needs.
Creating a training chart
Here’s our guide to producing a training matrix template in Excel – you can use other software to document this if you like, a word processing application will do the job just fine. This Training Matrix covers three key areas within training:-
- Health & Safety Training
- Management Training
- General Training
To identify the training needs of your employees
- Mark the box with a red bold ‘X’
- When training has been completed we would recommend you change this to a green tick
- Insert the date training was completed (to identify refresher training)
