LSLC Training Needs Assessment

A place to gather all of my thought processes for the assessment I will be undertaking for my Library System. Stephanie Zimmerman Training Coordinator Library System of Lancaster County http://lslctraining.blogspot.com A Needs Assessment/Skills Gap Analysis is identifying the gaps between CURRENT and DESIRED SKILLS (so what are those right now?) and the possible solutions to those gaps (what action is needed to close the gaps?  Is it training or not? If it is training, what kind of training?).

Do they have yearly evaluation procedures?

What are the Libraries Doing?

Do they have job descriptions

What internal training are they doing?

Do they have defined Core Competencies?

Do they do Performance Appraisals?

What is their mission statement?

What are their organizational goals?

Interest in a Systemwide Staff Day?

Interest in a Training/Cont. Ed Committee?

Look for an "inside" person at each library

Someone who advocates training and is techie.

My plan?

First a direct-informal (asking staff casual questions) survey?

Or first a direct-informal (asking directors about learning issues) survey to identify what should go on the staff survey.

Be sure to ask specific and measurable questions, not just do you need training on...

Determine where staff are already on the topics I ask about - novice vs. pro etc.
