What are the Benefits of Running a QQI Special Purpose Award at your workplace?

The award is comprised of Training Needs Identification and Design (3 days) and Training Delivery and Evaluation (4 days). You can run the programme as 7 consecutive days, or by taking a break between modules.
  • Consistent High Standards

    Each participant on the course will receive a detailed level of training in all skills required for training excellence.
  • Training Needs Analysis & Programme Design

    Training Needs Identification and Design focuses on the first stages of the Training Cycle. Your team will learn to identify a client or colleague’s training needs through Training Needs Analysis. They will learn how to use the information to design the right training for the individual or group.
  • Delivery with Confidence

    Training delivery is such a huge part of a trainer’s role. During the Training Delivery and Evaluation workshop, we work on developing training delivery skills. Participants will receive valuable feedback from our experienced trainer.
  • Training Evaluation

    The final stage of the training cycle - evaluation - is an important one. For the benefit of both the trainer and trainees, there must be a way to determine how successful and useful the training has been. Methods for evaluation are covered in the final stages of the Training Delivery and Evaluation module.
  • Achievement

    Successful participants will achieve the QQI Special Purpose Award in Training and Development. This is placed at Level 6 on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ).
