Abstract

A quantitative and qualitative examination was undertaken during this exploration of training and development.
The primary sources of data were the participants who had completed some form of training and development. The questionnaire was designed in order to examine their attitudes having completed training.
Qualitative research was used in the form of in-depth interviews with two members of the management team of the organisation, so as to supplement the information gathered in the questionnaires and to understand training and development, from a management perspective.
The result obtained reflected the training and development activities in the organisation in a very positive light and in particular highlighted the areas for possible development.
The literature reviewed considered the role training, development and education has played in the growth of health sector organisations both nationally and internationally. In particular, the inherent programmes motivating and improving job satisfaction. The findings focus on the themes of the questionnaires and the interviews and commonalities arising, in particular it examines the possibility of future recommendations.
