Train the Trainer

Duration 2 days

The objective of this course is to equip delegates with the skills that will enable them to train colleagues proficiently and effectively to meet training requirements.

During the course delegates will practice setting learning objectives and will discover the basic principal of designing a training programme. They will review the importance of using appropriate language and behaviour to facilitate understanding and learning within the group and develop the ability to gain group participation and involvement.

Part of the course is spent using visual aids to support of the learning process, observing and giving feedback. Delegates will be required to prepare and deliver a short training session and design a Personal Development Plan
