Differentiate training from education and development.

Student response


Training is different from education and development but are each other’s components. Training is a learning method of development of a particular skill needed by the company. The company needs to have a plan and goal before implementing a training session for its employees because training “facilitate learning of job-related competencies, knowledge, skills and behavior” (Noe, 2017) of the employee.

Education on the other hand is the theoretical form of learning by reason, judgment, concepts and principles. Development is a continuous growth process using educational and training resources to help individual grow professionally, obtain more responsibility and knowledge for future positions and jobs.

Training comes after understanding the educational background of the positon or related field of work.  For example, companies like US Airways, provides five weeks of training to all new hires to provide great customer services and safety in the aviation industry (Noe, 2017).  The right training method is best effective if it meets “instructional or training goals and objective” (Noe, 2017) which can prove results in company’s growth and profit.
