Testimonial "Jeremy, Thank you for the time you spent with us…I just wanted to let you know that I think your training was one of the best I’ve ever attended on behalf of BOC Gases…this is the first course I have attended that all the principles of adult learning have been applied. Your depth of knowledge of the subject was exceptional.” Stephen Haller

Make it Stick

Research shows that around 70% of knowledge and skill learnt on a course is routinely lost within 24 hours if it isn’t used or reviewed. That’s a bad return-on-investment in anyone’s reckoning. There are proven strategies to improve recall, comprehension and transfer. Supervisors should first understand the Forgetting Curve and then follow the steps in Supervisors. Students should use the Make it Stick activities at one-day, one-week and one-month after the training.

1 - Forgetting Curve

2 - Supervisors

3 - Word Search

4 - Reflection

Toolbox Talks

Toolbox Talks are a recognised way to “stop & think” about the risks associated with a particular task or job. Toolbox Talks are different to training or awareness sessions because the leader, usually a supervisor, is not trying to impart new knowledge or skill. At this point the team should be Competent. Here the leader is attempting to ensure everyone on the work party has a clear understanding of the particular risks and controls. Everyone needs to agree, and where possible ‘sign-off’ on how we will work (drive).
