Training

TRAINING is a subsystem of an organization. It ensures that randomness is reduced and learning or behavioural change takes place in structured planned way. The principal objective of training and development division is to make sure the availability of skilled and willing workforce to an organization.
It is a learning process that involves the acquisition of knowledge, sharpening of skills, concepts, rules, or changing of attitudes and behaviors to enhance the performance of employees. Learning simply means "Change in Behaviour". This is what we mean by training and that is what we aim at.

Training and development is vital part of the human resource development. It is assuming ever important role in wake of the advancement of technology which has resulted in ever increasing competition, rise in customer’s expectation of quality and service and a subsequent need to lower costs. It is also become more important globally in order to prepare workers for new jobs. In the current write up, we will focus more on the emerging need of training and development, its implications upon individuals and the employers.
Noted management author Peter Drucker said that the fastest growing industry would be training and development as a result of replacement of industrial workers with knowledge workers. In United States, for example, according to one estimate technology is de-skilling 75 % of the population. This is true for the developing nations and for those who are on the threshold of development. In Japan for example, with increasing number of women joining traditionally male jobs, training is required not only to impart necessary job skills but also for preparing them for the physically demanding jobs. They are trained in everything from sexual harassment policies to the necessary job skills.
The need for Training and Development
Before we say that technology is responsible for increased need of training inputs to employees, it is important to understand that there are other factors too that contribute to the latter. Training is also necessary for the individual development and progress of the employee, which motivates him to work for a certain organisation apart from just money. We also require training update employees of the market trends, the change in the employment policies and other things.
The following are the two biggest factors that contribute to the increased need to training and development in organisations:
1. Change: The word change encapsulates almost everything. It is one of the biggest factors that contribute to the need of training and development. There is in fact a direct relationship between the two. Change leads to the need for training and development and training and development leads to individual and organisational change, and the cycle goes on and on. More specifically it is the technology that is driving the need; changing the way how businesses function, compete and deliver.
2. Development: It is again one the strong reasons for training and development becoming all the more important. Money is not the sole motivator at work and this is especially very true for the 21st century. People who work with organisations seek more than just employment out of their work; they look at holistic development of self. Spirituality and self awareness for example are gaining momentum world over. People seek happiness at jobs which may not be possible unless an individual is aware of the self. At ford, for example, an individual can enrol himself / herself in a course on ‘self awareness’, which apparently seems inconsequential to ones performance at work but contributes to the spiritual well being of an individual which is all the more important.
The critical question however remains the implications and the contribution of training and development to the bottom line of organisations performance. To assume a leadership position in the market space, an organisation will need to emphasise on the kind of programs they use to improvise performance and productivity and not just how much they simply spend on learning!

At McareM We Provide Range of Training as stated

For Schools
  • Life Skills
    However, our Life Skills programme is only one day workshop. It will be practiced and improve life. In this workshop participants are trained to behave to use their behaviour appropriately and responsibly in the management of their personal affairs in order to handle their problems and questions commonly encountered in daily life. It varies greatly depending on social norms and community expectations.
    However, life skills are often taught in the domain of parenting, either indirectly through the observation and experience of the child, or directly with the purpose of teaching a specific skill.
    Our life skills programs are offered when traditional family structures and healthy relationships have broken down, whether due to parental lapses, divorce or due to issues with the children (such as substance abuse or other risky behavior).
    Effective Teaching and training
    Teaching is a skill and our effective trainer use techniques that best serve the learning needs of the students. There are many things that students can learn themselves through discovery as well as more direct way, with the trainers structuring the learning to suit. Our trainers train in a way that train students to take greater responsibility for their own learning.
    Class Management
    Classroom management is a term used by teachers to describe the process of ensuring that syllabus run smoothly despite disruptive behavior by students. The classroom management also includes the prevention of disruptive behavior. It is possibly the most difficult aspect of teaching for many teachers; indeed experiencing problems in this area causes some to leave teaching altogether.
    Our program classroom management is closely linked to issues of motivation, discipline and respect. Techniques remain a matter of passionate debate amongst teachers; approaches vary depending on the beliefs a teacher holds regarding educational psychology. A large part of traditional classroom management involves behavior modification of the students, although many teachers see using behavioral approaches alone as overly simplistic. Many teachers establish rules and procedures at the beginning of the school year. But rules are not enough to manage the classrooms. Our Technique will train you on this skill.
    Active Learning Techniques
    Active learning is the responsibility of learning on learners.
    In our program active learning can be focused on the following type of active learning for learners. In our Programme we provide training on the following techniques step by step. A class discussion may be held in person in classroom. Discussions can be conducted with any class size, although it is typically more effective in smaller group settings. A think-pair-share activity is when learners take a minute to ponder the previous lesson, later to discuss it with one or more of their peers, finally to share it with the class as part of a formal discussion.
    Interpersonal skills for Teachers and Students
    In our Program we focus on training this part because it is the most important skill. Good Teachers have excellent Interpersonal skills. And also "Great teachers are always looking for opportunities to increase their own knowledge. They are data driven as well. Babies start to develop interpersonal relationships as soon as they are born. Infants ‘bond’ quickly with parents and siblings making eye-contact and recognising faces, voice sounds, tone and pitch.  Smiles usually follow from about two months old and as any parent will know babies have a way of communicating that something is wrong from a very early age if they are tired, hungry, in pain.

    We found that students may have difficulties with social interactions if 
    They have problems making and keeping close friends
    • They are the victim of bullying or excessive teasing (a certain amount of teasing is normal)
    • They are the culprit of bullying or excessive teasing of other children
    • They are generally too domineering or too passive in problem solving and conflict resolution
    • They do not behave appropriately in group situations, teachers may pick up on such traits
    • They misunderstand conversations frequently and make irrelevant or inappropriate comments
    • They misunderstand facial expressions and other non-verbal signs and make inappropriate comments or gestures
    • They find it difficult to understand humour and/or use humour in conversation
    • They interrupt conversations frequently and inappropriately.

    The aim of our program is to resolve such problems of students.

    Stress Management for Teachers and Students
    If teacher care of themselves they can take care their students. On the other way round, if they are on stress the situation become opposite.
    Our program is focused on managing stress of teachers as well as students.
    If all focus on what is in their control. Then we can maintain our stress level.
    Positive self talk is vital. What would you say to your best friend if they were having a bad day? 
    Decide to talk to yourself as you would talk to your best friend.
    We feel worse after being with the people who drain our energy but we can’t avoid them. Our program is to energize all.

    We found that teachers are often very bad at saying ‘no’ to jobs and tasks. It is of course very important to be co-operative and helpful, but if you are always overloaded, thing about how this is contributing to your stress.  Our program will train you to say ‘no’ and manage your stress.
