Training and Development: Unit 1

UKOER Course Pack


This learning unit discusses training within organisations and how knowledge of occupational psychology can contribute to this. Expertise in occupational psychology may be employed in different situations. Practitioners applying this expertise will have to work differently with respect to training in order to adapt to the requirements of their employment. Working out how to do this is something that each practitioner needs to address for themselves when they undertake work and whenever they change employment. There is no standard methodology for training that companies endorse that must be followed, although all good training is guided by principles and good practice that have evolved over time and in accordance with research findings. Above all, it is necessary to learn to think for yourselves in accordance with the knowledge and principles that underpin the discipline.
