The QQI Training Needs Identification and Design course is an excellent choice for teams that need to be able to identify training requirements and design training modules or full programmes successfully.

Here are 5 key benefits of choosing to run a Training Needs Identification & Design programme for your team:

  • Custom-Made Content


    One of the main benefits of in-company training is the opportunity to adjust the existing course content to focus on the elements of training needs identification and design that your participants will need the most. We can refocus the content to refer to your business and its training challenges.
  • Consistency


    Training an entire team at once provides a common language, skill-set and level of competency throughout. This ensures that those who are trained by or within your business will receive the same standard of service at all times.
  • Confidence with Training Needs Analysis


    Identifying training needs and analysing them to determine the goals and objectives of training can be a tricky process. Having completed this QQI Training Needs Identification and Design course, participants will be competent and confident in conducting a full training needs analysis.
  • Training Design Skills


    Being able to design an engaging training programme or module around objectives is a valuable skill for any trainer. We teach participants how to create training that is both enjoyable and effective.
  • Certification


    Once delegates have successfully completed and passed their assessment work, they will achieve a respected QQI Level 6 certification.

More About QQI “Train the Trainer” Certifications


The old Train The Trainer FETAC Level 6 certification (code: E30179) was deactivated by QQI in December 2014.

The Training Delivery & Evaluation Level 6 course is its closest replacement in style and content.

You can progress to the QQI Training & Development Special Purpose Award by completing Training Delivery and Evaluation along with this course, Training Needs Identification & Design.

The Training Cycle


By completing both courses, your team will have covered all 4 stages of the training cycle. These stages are:

  • Analyse
  • Design
  • Deliver
  • Evaluate

QQI Special Purpose Award in Training and Development


Successful completion of both courses and the accompanying body of assessment work will earn participants with the QQI Special Purpose Award in Training and Development. It’s an excellent continuous development programme.

First, participants must complete training. Next, comes a period of self-directed learning and assessment work. We will provide each participant with an assessment brief and guidance for self-directed learning during the course. All assessment work must be submitted 8 weeks after the last training date. The work is then evaluated, and successful candidates will receive their QQI certificate within 5 - 6 months of submitting their work.
