British Asians Welfare Association (BAWA) work on the training guide is concerned with primarily around what's good for people, rather than primarily what's profitable for organisations. The reason for this is that in terms of learning, training and development, what's good for people is good for the organisations in which they work. What's good for people's development is good for organisational performance, quality, customer satisfaction, effective management and control, and therefore profits too.
British Asians Welfare Association (BAWA) is an organisation which approach training and development from this standpoint inevitably foster people who perform well and progress, and, importantly, stay around for long enough to become great at what they do, and to help others become so. Training is a very commonly used word, so it features heavily on this page, but learning is in many ways a better way to think of the subject, because learning 'belongs' to the learner, whereas training traditionally 'belongs' to the trainer or the organization. This is a significant difference in attitude, explained in more detail on the training or learning. Whatever your role and responsibility, you might not immediately be able to put great new emphasis on 'whole person development'.
Being realistic, corporate attitudes and expectations about what 'training' is and does cannot be changed overnight, and most organizations still see 'training' as being limited to work skills, classrooms and PowerPoint presentations. However, when you start to imagine and think and talk about progressive attitudes to developing people - beyond traditional skills training - for example: Enabling learning, facilitating meaningful personal development and helping people to identify and achieve their own personal potential.
