The Adult Training Scheme is based around two key elements:
Learning-This is when the adult has the opportunity to gain or improve the knowledge and skills
which they need to perform their role. As the scheme recognises prior learning, knowledge and
experience; individuals may not need to complete learning for every aspect of the scheme.
Validation-This is when a Training Adviser will check what the adult has learned, and that they can apply the skills that they have acquired to their role. Validation is essential for every module
except for the mandatory ongoing learning modules.
