This is a structured assessment of a team member’s skill level within an organisation. It is essential to ensure that the skills are relevant to the organisation and to the person’s role within the organisation. Training-Progress allows you to set the level of importance that is attached to each skill and also how quickly someone would be expected to reach competency.
It is best to assess a team member’s competence using well defined structures. Some systems require a rating such as “75% competent”. This often requires a very subjective assessment – should it be 60% or 80%? What criteria do I use to differentiate the % attainment levels?
A simpler and more direct method is to use the following levels:
- The person is presently undergoing training.
- The person has completed training and is awaiting (re)assessment of the skill.
- The person is competent
- The person has sufficient competence and experience to train others in the skill
By using these clearly defined and easily assessable levels, the competence level in a particular skill or task can be determined.
