Design of a Graduate Development Programe

Design of a Graduate Development Programe
Coursework Title:
Individual assignment A: Design of a Graduate Development Programme
Task Details/Description:
Your task is to plan a development programme for a new graduate on completion of his/her degree programme within an organization of your choice. You have two options:-
Base your assignment on an organization with which you are familiar through your placement year.
Focus on an organization where you would ideally love to work in the future. This may involve research through the internet or other means to gain background information.
Even though you may be drawing on your own experience and aspirations, the assignment should be completed in the third person, i.e. as though written by a third party- an HRD specialist, for example.
The development programme should last for three months, and should incorporate both on and off the job training. You MUST have a specific organization in mind to provide the background for your development programme. You are allowed to make reasonable assumptions, for example, the job the graduate will perform on completion of development, and person-related training needs.
You should take into account the following:-
The objectives for the development programme
How the plan fits with the HRD strategy of the organization
Psychological and sociological learning theories to underpin proposals
A range of interventions based on formal as well as informal learning
How the learning will be evaluated
You should present a detailed timetable of the development programme, stating your objectives for the programme, and detailing the business case for your proposal.
You should specify how you will evaluate the effectiveness of the event.
