Training, leadership, styles and appraisal

This is any form of training which takes place away from the immediate workplace. Off-the-job training includes more general skills and knowledge useful for work, as well as job-specific training. Training may be provided by specialist trainers working for National Grid or by an outside company hired to help with training. Off-the-job training is particularly effective for non-technical skills, as employees can use these across different areas of the company.

Cons off the job training




On-the-job training is training that takes place while employees are actually working. It means that skills can be gained while trainees are carrying out their jobs. This benefits both employees and the business. Employees learn in the real work environment and gain experience dealing with the tasks and challenges that they will meet during a normal working day.
