"Training Needs Analysis is a scrutiny of the training, learning and development needs of the staff, volunteers or trustees in an organization. It considers the skills, knowledge and behaviors of the people in the organization and how to develop them, both to deliver the organization’s strategic objectives and support the individual’s career progression.

Training Needs Assessment is the process by which we can determine what sort of knowledge, skills, and/or abilities staff, volunteers or trustees have that can be accomplished via some sort of learning means. It’s a way of figuring out what needs the staff, volunteers or trustees have that can be met with training. "

 Putting them in simple terms :


Training Need Analysis - is the process of analysing the requirement of skills, knowledge and abilities to meet the requirements of the organisation towards a particular role/job. Training programs will be designed based on the desired outcome of analysis.


Assessment : it is the process of evaluating the training outcome at program/individual level. It determines the value addition to the organisation when training is executed.


Hope the above info clarified your query.
