SEAMEO VOCTECH (09 March 2022) - The Virtual In-country Training Programme “Measuring Training Efficiency and Effectiveness using Return on Investment Technique” spearheaded by TVET Regional Centre, SEAMEO VOCTECH and successfully co-organised with the Technical and Vocational Education Training Division, Ministry of Education, Malaysia culminated in a closing ceremony on 9th March, 2022
In attendance at the closing ceremony was Centre Director of SEAMEO VOCTECH, Mr. Alias bin Haji Abu Bakar; Mrs. Hajah Norhayati binti Haji Abdul Wahab, Deputy Director for Training Development and Industrial Linkages Sector, Technical Education, Training Division, Ministry of Education, Malaysia; Deputy Director of Administration of SEAMEO VOCTECH, Pg. Haji Mohamad Sufri bin Pg. Ali; and Deputy Director of Professional Affairs and Research Specialist of SEAMEO VOCTECH cum course facilitator for the training programme, Dr. Paryono; together with other management officers of SEAMEO VOCTECH.
The 3-day online training programme comprising 27 participants under the Ministry of Education Malaysia came to fruition with the aim of levelling up their training measurement knowledge and skills as trainers and vocational practitioners using Return on Investment (ROI) technique to better assess end users and clientele in their respective organisation or institution.
The ROI technique was emphasised as the highest level of assessment and measurement in training as it enables trainers to gauge how meaningful the intervention has been for participants and its value to the performance of the organisation.
During the training, participants were introduced to the level 1 to level 5 training measurements which will enable them to be aware of potential impacts, prompting them to be more conscious and mindful of their decisions and actions.
“Those five levels of training measurements will equip you with the knowledge and skills to decide what level your training programmes deserve to have and are suitable for. Knowing that you have learned the training measurement from the planning stage, to data collection, analysis and report writing, I believe that now you are ready to implement those competencies.” Mr. Alias encouraged.
