Abstract

The need to develop effective and efficient training programs has been recognised by all sectors engaged in training. In responding to the above need, focus has been directed to developing good competency statements and performance indicators to measure the outcomes. Very little has been done to understand how the competency statements get translated into good performance. To conceptualise this translation process, a representational model based on an information processing paradigm is proposed and discussed. It is argued that learners’ prior knowledge and the effectiveness of the instructional material are two variables that have significant bearing on how effectively the competency knowledge is translated into outcomes. To contextualise the model examples from apprentice training are used.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
