Marketing Text The Compendium provides an overview of the TSESME project, its main findings and presents the most relevant aspects of the toolkit.
After a short presentation of the training
needs analysis undertaken, the Compendium
gives a general idea on the toolkit, its main
features as well as the results obtained during
its piloting test. The toolkit was seen as an adequate method that provides general feedback and suggestions about specific training needs and offers a good basis for discussions with training providers for the definition of a training programme as well as encouraging staff to think about the importance and necessity for vocational training in general.
To emphasizes that the pilot work revealed
the versatility of the toolkit and how it is possible to assess training needs and design training activities to meet those needs in a way that fits the requirements of the small and micro social organisations.
The complete toolkit is as annexed to the Compendium as a cdrom.
TSESME focuses on the specific situation
in small (<50 employees) and particularly
micro (<10 employees) organisations of the
social economy sector. It includes organisations which are business with primarily social objectives whose surplus are principally reinvested for the purpose in the business or in the community, rather than being driven by the needed to maximize profit for shareholders and owners.
Primary target groups: managers/owners of small and micro social organisations,that use the assessment tools and the guidelines for the assessment of their training needs and the needs of their employees and for designing needs oriented vocational training programmes in their organisations.
Secondary target groups: trainers, training
managers, consultants and training providers,
which use the tools for supporting the needs analyses in small and micro companies and create user and needs oriented training programmes
