Mode of Training:

Singapore Polytechnic

Course Objectives
The trend in learning and development in organisations follows the Charles Jennings’ 70:20:10 learning model.

  • Experience: 70% from on-the-job experiences, tasks, and problem solving or “workplace learning” and “performance support”
  • Exposure: 20% from feedback and from working around good or bad examples of the need or “social learning”
  • Education: 10% from courses and reading or structured courses or “formal learning”
This course aims to ensure that the 70% of experience learning on-the-job is done well for employees. Very often employees have head knowledge of OJT but not the practical experience in doing OJT. Therefore this course will have the following learning outcomes. At the end of the course, participants will be able to:-

a) Design the basic framework of an OJT programme
b) Prepare OJT learning and training resources
c) Apply OJT approach at the workplace
