The Success of The program rests on effective capacity building of various stakeholders, especially at the grass root level
like UWSSC, Community groups and the community. To enable SOs to perform their role the following step can be taken.
Efficient and thorough planning is the key to a successful training programme. The key dimensions that need planning are :-
The formation of training groups needs to address two dimensions-size and composition. For different norms stakeholders there could be different norms for the appropriate size of the training groups .however group than is 30 is not considered appropriate. The Composition of the groups needs to take into account gender, profile, level of Current Knowledge.
Training could be on Ranichauri Rads Training Center which RADS have a own Building with all training facilities.
The Duration of the training Programme would be 10 Am to 5 Pm. This covered all contents of the training programme.
Communication to the target stakeholders regarding the date time venue duration,topic etc. is very essential for ensuring the attendance . Communication has to be well in advances
It is a good idea to plan incentive that will help bring the group together for training as spending time for the training would mean loss of wages to many.
The resource person should be well qualified and knowledge full.
The logistics for the training Programm like hiring and prepaing the venue for the training ensuring availability of all the training material at the venue, arrangements for transport to and from the venue.
Planning also includes deciding on the training Material required –training aids, material required for participants etc manual/ hanouts appropriate for the training need to be though at the planning stage.
The trainers are required to attend to the following for successful implementation of programme.
Needs assessment of the participants before commencing any training Programme is vital. This could be done by way of a written Questionnaire, a verbal quiz or other interactive methods.
Ensuring that sessions start and emd on time, that breaks are provided in between sessions etc are important steps in implementation.
Preparations of sessions and methodology well in advance by the resource persons, time duration for each session providing uniform messages and keeping adequate time for clarification are important.
Wherever Possible, integration of the training,contents across Programme is very useful. Even scheduling of the training programme could be integrated with training by other departments,if any.
The objective of evaluation of training is two fold-whether the objective of the training has been achieved and whether the training programmes require any modification/improvements for greater effectiveness. Training evaluation would be of four types
a- reactive evaluation Participants were satisfied with the training inputs or not
b- learning evaluation –objective of the training programme have been achieved
c- results/Impact Evaluation Ultimate success of training ie whether the problem have been solved
