The workshop, which is applicable to all types of organisations interested in assessing learning and training needs, also involved a dragon’s den exercise where participants got to present their cases for investing in training.

Jon Parry said: “The workshop proved a real success and we received encouraging feedback from participants. Carrying out a Learning Needs Analysis plays a vital part in supporting employers to understand the skills gaps that might confront their organisations and equips them with the knowledge and tools to address these gaps.”

“Before the workshop, almost half of the delegates (40%) had a basic level of understanding of LNAs in general and just over half fully recognised the benefits of conducting an LNA. After the workshop, around 90% of the participants closely or fully understood LNAs and the benefits of conducting an LNA.’
