Relationship Between Training & Learning

Training is essentially a learning process. In a training programme, learning is a complex, multidimensional process. There are myriad factors and conditions that influence the learning process. To further compound the situation, there are many players in the process- the trainees, trainers, support staff etc. And each of these groups may have its own agenda to pursue in the training programme, and often its own preferred way of operating to achieve it. They may even have divergent views on issues associated with training.

In order to realize the programme objectives, it is necessary that the trainer considers the learning process as a composite. There is, therefore a need to identify different aspects of the learning process and adopting a strategy that takes on board all these dimensions. It is important that the learning team maintains a constant vigil of the learning process.
