Training is a needs driven process that is typically directed to the learner by an organization, which could be identified as an extrinsic need. The needs for training are usually driven by an organization and not by the learner. The organization has identified a situation where the learner is required to attain new skills or behaviors supporting skills.
The organization drives the need and outcomes for the training of adult learners. The training is usually focused specifically on what has been identified as a gap or an opportunity for the organization to assist in the development of the learner, involving less theory, the training objectives focus on skills which the learner is required to learn.
The needs and performance objectives of training are related to completing tasks or doing a specific job or learning specific skills within an organizational setting. Training can provide an organization with a return on investment with a positive impact on the return on investment.
Training is a series of very specific, structured activities that are related to the achievement of clearly stated performance objectives that are typically related to doing a job. Formal training is usually concerned with gaining a skill. Often, training is done in trade schools, seminars, and business training classes.
Education is also a needs driven process. The needs for education are self-directed by the learner differing from training where the organization directs the learning. The needs for education can be described as an intrinsic need of the learner, where the learner wants to learn for their own perspective. To expand their knowledge to fulfill an individually identified need.
Education encompasses many areas including skill development. Through education the learner is provided with theory, information and the critical thinking skills which enable and provide the learner with an ability to challenge The Who, The What, The When, The Where and The Why of the learning.
Education helps the learner to build problem solving skills. The objective of educational classes or of self-education is usually to gain knowledge about facts, events, principles, concepts.
In most classes the student is required to demonstrate the memorization of facts and the association between concepts. In other classes, they must apply rules to solve problems. Testing concerns memorization and understanding, plus perhaps analytic and problem solving skills.
