Methods of Development
There are many ways to learn and different people have different preferred learning styles. When deciding which is most appropriate for the individual and the particular learning need, remember that:

* Most learning takes place in and around the job;
* Methods which spread learning over a period and allow opportunities for practice and review often produce the best results;
* Relying solely on off-the-job training is unlikely to lead the development sought. The value of training courses is increased when they are combined with learning on-the-job.

Examples of different methods for consideration are given below:
* Off-the-Job Development Activities. E.g.
* Short courses or conferences.
* Open or distance learning.
* Part-time (evening or day release) college courses.
* Computer/ DVD based training packages.
* Job rotation or secondments.

On-the-Job Development Activities. E.g.
* Taking on a bigger job.
* On-the-job instruction.
* Trouble shooting problems
* Special studies or investigations.
* Working with people from different departments.
* Being involved in, or leading a project.
* Participating in contract negotiations.
* Being involved in a recruitment exercise.
* Teaching other people.
* Giving a presentation.
