Developing training contacts

Rather than just collect training statistics, it has been suggested to me to keep a record of who has been trained what. This data can be captured in conjunction with a training evaluation form. This means that after a reasonable interval you can contact trainees to see how they are getting on and whether they need any more training. Furthermore, they can be notified early of any developments to a training programme, such as new or more advanced courses. In my organisation, the training department has a broad training database on Access, to which I am able to input who has been on which of my information skills courses. In the future I can use reports to export contact details of interest. This data is more useful than just bald training statistics.
