Training Needs Analysis

Training Needs Analysis (TNA) is a structured approach to determine both training and non-training solutions to skills gaps brought about by changes in: equipment, personnel, legislation or policy, working practices or organisational culture. By applying a Systematic Approach to Training (SAT) Methodolgy, we ensure a comprehensive TNA is conducted.

Explosive Learning Solutions offers a range of specialist TNA services. Our expert personnel have over 40 years combined experience in the conduct of TNA in the public, private and voluntary sectors. This experience is underpinned by strong academic backgrounds to Masters-level in training, education and occupational psychology disciplines. We employ TNA techniques to develop solutions for training and performance gaps in both hard and soft skills, in situations where training did not exist or where the existing training was sub-optimal. We have extensive experience in the application of the UK MOD TNA methodology prescribed in JSP 822. We also provide initial scoping studies and full TNA reports.


We can conduct TNA as a standalone training project or as part of a capability integration project. Recent TNA projects have involved:

  • Defence Human Capability Science Technology Centre
  • Social & Welfare
  • Royal Military Academy Sandhurst
  • Generic counter-IED training

Our tailored TNA approach integrates with your organisation to develop training methods and media that suit the way your organisation works. From the outset we work in partnership with your people. We initiate the process of change that is often required with the introduction of new equipment, policies or personnel.
