WHY CONDUCT A LEARNING NEEDS ANALYSIS?

A learning needs analysis will help:
• Identify what skills and knowledge the learners already have
• Highlight skills/knowledge/competencies that need developing
• Identify clearly what students wish to achieve
• Outline and define expectations and goals
• Establish need and demand for the course you have in mind
• Determine what can realistically be achieved given the available resources
• Identify any obstacles or difficulties which may arise
• Increase the sense of ownership and involvement of the students
• Provide information about your student group – know your audience
• Achieve a correct fit between the provider and student, i.e., the course matches student needs and expectations
• Identify the content that best suits students needs
• Determine what is the most appropriate delivery format – class based, online or a mix of these and other formats
• Determine what skill set and knowledge base is required of the tutor
• Develop a budget and cost benefit analysis
• Establish when is the most suitable time to deliver the programme and over what time frame
• Ascertain the most suitable evaluation mechanisms
• Outline what results can be expected and if/how these can be measured
