Title Questionnaire for identifying training needs
Product Type procedure for the analysis and prognosis of the vocational training requirement
In December 2009 a training needs analysis was conducted in 4 countries (Slovenia, France, Hungary and Austria) to formally confirm the need for training and to establish a specific training programme around ABI that service providers and practitioners within
partner countries felt would be most beneficial. The main aims of the training needs survey were to identify possible issues and staff training needs in order to deliver care and support to persons with ABI and to ensure that the training content to be developed along the ABI project covers topics that best address staff' needs and gaps in knowledge and skills.The staff´ training needs survey was conducted by using a common written questionnaire.In total 333 questionnaires
The questionnaire was developed by the project coordinator. The questionnaire was common to all partner countries. The questions referred to the two main areas of individual training
needs and self-assessment of own knowledge. The questionnaire was primarily developed in English and then translated to partner
The questionnaires were e-mailed to a large number of organisations, institutions and individuals at local and national level.
