In completing the trainee’s profile, we need to know the characteristics essential in individualizing the session plan. Below are the essential trainee’s characteristics the trainer needs to gather:
|Characteristics of Learners
||What does it mean to the plan?
|Language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) level
||These greatly affect the training method you can use, as well as activities and task suitable for each session. You should be prepared for different LLN levels and must have different resources.
|Cultural and language background
||Be aware of different cultural background and language abilities. You should take into account inappropriate activities because of culture and language.
|Education and general knowledge
||It is used as one of the basis to gauge learner’s cognitive capacity. It can also be of help in deciding what speaking pitch and rate of voice to use for each session.
||It can influence your plan if there are activities that have demonstration, role play and so on.
||Age can alter the plan depending on what is being delivered, how and at what pace.
||Awareness on their learning style could aid on what training method/s to use. You could classify them as auditory, visual, kinesthetic, pragmatist, activist, reflector and theorist learners.
