/ Training vs Teaching vs Coaching
Does anyone have a definition of each which highlights the difference?
Doesn't everyone use the words in slightly different ways anyway?
What are you trying to find out for? You can look up definitions in dictionary.com
Yes, I realise that I can look up the definitions but I want to get a feel for the general perception of the difference.
I am in discussion with a goverment department who fund some work. They fund Consulting work at 50% of the cost with a cap of $5,000 and training work at 75% of the cost with a cap of $10,000.
I deliver a training course which they are attempting to call consulting but I think they are actually applying teaching criteria in order to make their point.
Just my ideas on it:
Training- providing the information and skills required to fulfil a set task.
Teaching- providing information that may not relate to a specific task but can provide a base from which a person can build their own ideas and opinions.
Coaching- providing training *and feedback* to assist in the improvement of a person's ability to do something.
