Outcomes Based Vocational Training

Jonathan O ‘Brien,
General Assembly Singapore

Greetings from the Lifelong Learning Conference 2019, at the Singapore University of Social Sciences, where Jonathan O ‘Brien from General Assembly Singapore, talked on how they provide results based education. They use the Kirkpatrick Model to evaluate training, which as four levels (low to high): Reaction, Learning, Behavior, and Results. Traditional educators are used to measuring the first two of these, with a survey of student feedback on the a course, and the assessments of students. However, the last two are about how the graduate does their work better, back in the workplace. A vocational course which students like, and are able to pass, is no use if it doesn't get them a job, or improve the quality of their work in the job they have.
