Most business leaders are constantly looking for efficient ways to implement training or development programs to improve their employees’ job performance. Not only are these types of programs valuable for improving individual performance and productivity, but they can also lead to sweeping improvements when it comes to your corporation’s organization in general.
But your business might not have the access to the expertise needed in order to design and develop a quality curriculum for enhanced employee learning. In addition, it might struggle with navigating the latest instructional technologies.
We know how important it is that your company’s critical skills training meets its short-term and long-term objectives. That’s why Clayton State offers customized contract training and development programs designed to enhance employee job performance and to help your corporation achieve its goals.
What is Contract Training?
Contract training is a workforce training program created by a collaboration between corporations or organizations and colleges or universities. Typically trainees receive a certificate or badge upon completion of their training, which is led by a curriculum that’s mapped out by the institution in alignment with the needs and goals of a business.
You can learn more about the different training curriculum topics we offer here.
How Does It Work?
The process is simple. After completing a free needs assessment, we’ll connect you with one of our expert consultants. These individuals are trained to develop curriculums which narrow in on goals and outcomes in alignment with the needs of individual corporations.
Once a curriculum is officially mapped out with the business’s approval, each program is led by an industry professional in specific industries or academic interests who is qualified to train life-long learners. These professionals can deliver the training either remotely or at your location on your timeframe.
Don’t have the space to conduct training but want to do it in-person? You can also use one of Clayton State’s conference facilities on the Morrow main campus or CSU Fayette in Peachtree City to carry out your corporation’s training.
How Long Will it Take?
In addition to gaining easy access to Clayton State’s top-of-the-line training resources and facilities, you’re also guaranteed a quick turnaround time when it comes to our curriculum development. In fact, one of the best features of our contract training program is that it’s quick but intensive, which means it has the potential to result in an immediate impact.
Something also worth mentioning is that we follow the ADDIE Model (Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate) as a framework for the design and development of Clayton State educational and training programs.
Although the sequence of steps isn’t strictly linear, we find the model to be a valuable asset when it comes to defining the stages for implementing effective training tools.
In the first “Analysis” stage, the designer focuses on their target audience’s skill sets and knowledge to determine the desired outcome of the course. This stage is also sometimes referred to as the “Goal-Setting Stage.” This approach ensures that focus is placed on topics the trainees are unfamiliar with or on lessons in which they have yet to explore.
The “Design” stage is where the magic really happens. It is at this time that designers devise the goals of the program and the tools they’ll use to get there, including content, media, learning objectives, and assessments.
“Development,” meanwhile, focuses on the production and testing of the training methodology. In other words, the architect of a curriculum will look at the previous two stages and put their findings into action via drafting, production, and evaluation.
The “Implementation” stage then carries out the training process to ensure positive results with optimum efficiency. At this point, designers intently scrutinize various aspects of the curriculum to ensure quality delivery and to make sure the program remains successful in its goals.
The final step of the ADDIE Model is “Evaluation.” The main goals of this stage are to reflect on whether or not the program’s goals were met and to identify any necessary changes that need to be made going forward to improve efficiency and performance.
