The primary function of training is to promote the acquisition of skills. However, the purpose of training may be:

  • to improve performance   
  • to update employees' skills
  • to avoid managerial obsolescence   
  • to solve organisational problems
  • to orient new employees    
  • to satisfy personal growth
  • to prepare for promotion and managerial succession

Vision Training Manager provides the necessary tools to monitor, control and evaluate the effectiveness of the training. Vision is able to assist the training manager to:

  • identify, plan and manage the training of staff
  • totally automate the traditionally time-consuming tasks of administering a training department
  • easily measure return on investment on employee development
  • administer and manage learnerships
  • extract all reporting required to comply with the Skills Development Act
  • address the requirements / guidelines of the NQF

The system maintains a list of training that is required for each job within the company, and this can be used as the basis for creating a personal training plan for each employee.  Training completed can be matched against training required to highlight training still outstanding.

Course Creation - The system maintains a complete database of courses containing a multitude of basic data on each course.

Course Scheduling  -  courses can be scheduled to take place on specified dates.  This process automates other relevant system updates, ensuring facilities and resources are also managed. 

Course Bookings - Learners may be booked on scheduled courses as well as any ad-hoc courses.   Vision automatically performs a number of checks

  • that there is still place available
  • that the learner hasn't already attended this course
  • that the learner has complied with all the pre-requisites for this course 

Bookings for courses that are full are transferred to a waitlist.  When cancellations are received, learners can be transferred off the waitlist.

Course Completions - On completion of a course by a learner Vision will automatically update the learner's training record from the test and assessment results, and generate course certificates.

Learners - Extensive learner information can be created and maintained.  This applies to both employees, and to learners from other organisations.  Full information about these organisations may also be maintained, to extract billing for internally as well as externally trained learners.
Phase III: Evaluation
The purpose of evaluating in the training process is to determine whether trainees actually learned new skills and attitudes. Course, trainer and trainee evaluations may be conducted immediately post-training. Thereafter, effectiveness of the training may be determined by assessing the worker's on-the-job performance.

Organisations are required to report on planned as well as attended training.  Vision makes it easy to extract all the required information in a variety of formats.

  • Alignment with your training strategy
  • Comprehensive learner information
  • Manage and maintain training budgets
  • Compliant with legislative requirements
  • Generate statistics and costs for SETA reporting
  • Adheres to the guidelines of the NQF
  • Allows easy administration of facilities and resources
  • Seamless integration with other modules
