What is instructional design (ID)?

Workplace Instructional Design is used to create learning resources and to make the acquisition of knowledge and skills more effective, efficient and appealing.

Courses can be designed around nationally recognised training packages using accredited units of competency and skill sets or through customised non-accredited courses designed to instruct on specific work skills.

We use the ADDIE model of instructional design for the majority of our client - explained in the table below:


An accredited suite of learning material could be inclusive of the following resources:
- Training scope
- Learning and assessment strategy
- Facilitator’s guide
- Participant’s guide
- Assessment
- Assessment marking guide
- PowerPoint presentation
- Risk assessment
- Assessment mapping

A non-accredited suite of learning material may include:
- User guide – training of skill or equipment
- Risk assessment
- Learning assessment
- PowerPoint presentation
- e-learning module (optional)

Some of our major clients include:
- Sydney Trains
- Transfield(Broadspectrum Infinite Solutions)
- Mines Rescue
- TAFE Colleges (SAand Qld)
- Universities(SA, Qld and NSW)


We ask our clients to consider how long their employees take to complete learning material. The answer is invariably the same – too long!

We have proven ability to complete tasks in a shorter time, costing less for the company whilst maintaining the intergrety of the learning project. The majority of our work is completed off-site.

Starting an ID project?

When we commence an instructional design project we follow a standard approach which includes:

1 Initial meeting with the project manager/stakeholders.
2 Develop scope for client required deliverables.
3 Agree on terms, conditions and deliverables.
4 Agree on reporting structure and deadlines.
5 Collect required information.
6 Complete deliverables - based on actual hours.
7 Attend regular update meetings on-site.
8 Deliver completed work on-line or in-person.

10 Edit any requirements.
11 Submit final work.
12 Write project completion report.
