Create your own Training Needs Analysis
Training Matrix
A Training Needs Analysis is a tool that can be used to track training and skill levels within an organization.

A Training Needs Analysis has a variety of uses from supporting gap analysis between required and actual knowledge levels and also tracking competency levels. When used as a visual management tool, the matrix can identify, at a glance, individual skill levels and weaknesses within the department.
To enable Construction Employers to create their own Training Matrix, CITB NI have developed a template and we would encourage employers to tailor the template to suit your own company and employee needs.

Creating a Training Needs Analysis

Here’s our guide to producing a training needs analysis template in Excel – you can use other software to document this if you like, a word processing application will do the job just fine. This Training Matrix covers three key areas within training:-
  1. Health & Safety Training
  2. Management Training
  3. General Training
