Ensure effective training spend with skills mapping, says QA-IQ

Organisations gain significantly improved value from their training spend by using structured assessment to identify skills gaps and manage the capabilities of their staff, according to learning services provider QA-IQ.

The company is exhibiting at this year's SFIA (Skills Framework for the Information Age) conference and exhibition on 29 November 2007.

Skills assessment specialist at QA-IQ, Andy Thomson, explains; "We work with a number of our customers to implement skills assessments based on the SFIA framework. By identifying target skills as essential for their business and planning training around these skills, they can maximise their ROI. By identifying skills essential for particular job roles companies can also create a strong framework for future recruitment and succession planning.

"We've developed a practical solution to identifying and solving skills gaps by mapping our course portfolio to the SFIA Framework competencies. We work closely with customers to understand the skills challenges faced by their organisation and match relevant learning solutions to the identified skills gaps. This means companies can take an end-to-end approach from identifying the capability development needed right through to assessing the value of their investment in post-training evaluation."

'Capability Management 2007, the SFIA Annual Conference' takes place on 29 November 2007 at the DTI Conference Centre, Victoria Street, London.
