NY04016 - Development and Implementation of the Training Program

The appointment of national skills development manager in January 2005 included taking on the responsibility of outcomes and outputs of ny04016. The overall aim of any training program is to ensure that the training activities implemented in the workforce result in transfer of relevant skills or change in behavior so as to build a more competitive business and strengthen the industry. The findings from this study clearly identified that nearly 70% of business owners/managers participating in the study indicated that training is important or essential to their business success. A higher percentage of NGI members think that training is important compared with non-members. This finding is significant as it emphasizes the importance of continued investment of resources into research and development activities.
