The Adult Training Scheme

The Adult Training Scheme is designed to provide adults with the knowledge, skills and understanding that are relevant to their role. Individuals are supported by a Training Adviser and their line manager to create a Personal Learning Plan, identifying the modules that are relevant to their role and the proposed methods of completing them.

The Adult Training Scheme is based around two key elements, learning and validation.

Learning:

This is when the adult has the opportunity to gain or improve the knowledge and skills which they need to perform their role. As the scheme recognises prior learning, knowledge and experience, individuals may not need to complete learning for every aspect of the scheme.

Validation:

This is when a Training Adviser will confirm that an adult can apply the knowledge, skills and understanding to their role. Validation is essential for every module relevant to their role.
