Trainees who learn about their preferred learning styles become better learners. Knowledge about their
learning styles generates a more positive attitude towards their training programme, greater self-
confidence, and more skill when it comes to applying new found knowledge back at work.
Information about learning styles can assist trainers in getting the most out of poorly prepared or poorly motivated trainees. Trainers with an understanding of their trainees learning styles are better able to adapt their learning methods to individual needs. Information about learning styles can help trainers to become more sensitive to the differences which trainees bring to the learning environment. Trainers who introduce a variety of learning methods into their programmes are more likely to provide usable opportunities for a group of trainees with varied learning styles and thereby motivate and enthuse them all.
Without learning styles information low satisfaction or poor performance in a planned learning experience,
or particular course activity, may be misinterpreted as lack of ability, or motivation, (by the trainer or
trainee or both) when it may in fact be the trainees difficulty in fitting their learning styles to the
programmes learning methods.
