Discuss the major difference between training and development

Middle School Teacher
Both concepts are strongly connected to one another. Yet, I would suggest that their intended scope is where I believe there are some significant differences. For example, a program that consists of training would be one in which a specific set of ideas and practices are imparted to an employee in order to complete a particular task. For example, training programs are often seen in new employee practices, as it is necessary to become acclimated to what they need to know about their particular occupation. The focus in a training program is immediate and short term. A more long term focus is evident in the concept of development. This idea refers to sensing where a potential arc of an employee's growth might lie and working to help that employee recognize and understand this future tense is where development lies. I sense that development involves more complicated elements that evoke the idea of a future orientation in terms of time more than a present tense one. In both training and development, the vitality of an organization is present in two distinct manners.
