Supporting learning transfer

The support from supervisors is essential for trainees' transfer success.

What Makes Training Really Work | Dr Ina Weinbauer-Heidel.

What are some of the common reasons why supervisors do not support learning transfer?

  • Lack of urgency/resource - other tasks have higher priority and learning transfer is not measured within the supervisor's role.

  • Lack of awareness/understanding - supervisors may be unaware of the learning transfer problem and the pivotal role they play.

  • Fear/resistance - they may know little of the training content and not want to "lose face". Additional bureaucracy may increase anxiety levels.

Within your organisation, how do you help ensure that supervisors support, promote and demand the application of what employees have learned?
