To examine which of the attended short courses are more effective in improving the skills of professional nurses. To find out which short courses, according to the professional nurses in the study, were found to be ineffective and unnecessary. The study was of importance to future researchers and academicians as it added new insight into the existing information with regards to employee training and development. It also provided the department of health, both nationally and provincially with an understanding of successes and challenges inherent to training and development and their corresponding effect on employee performance. As a result, this had a contribution towards how training and development are carried out within the organisation. A qualitative research design was deployed in this study to allow investigation of the possible relationship between training and development as well as to establish a comparison between the two.

In terms of training and development, the study was able to show that all Mamelodi Clinics under department of health Gauteng Province, has a range of training programmes for different staff of their clinics, and are of high quality standard and very effective. As a result, employee skills, overall performance of staff, and general competence of the employee has sharply increased due to training and development v methods and strategies put in place by department of health, both provincially and nationally. The study showed that in terms of employee performance and motivation, training and development programmes help in increasing employee motivation and thus performance. Employees are thus able to successfully be aligned with the goals, aims and missions of the clinics and the department of health, as well as the Batho Pele principles. The study concludes that training and development have positive effects on employees.
