Course Description


Our Train-the-Trainer workshop is aimed at those new to training to enable them to make an effective contribution to the training and development of others. It will give trainers the basic skills and knowledge needed as a foundation from which they can later develop the specialist skills of identifying training needs, training design, training delivery and training evaluation. The aim of the Train-the-Trainer programme is to enable learners to facilitate a well structured and varied programme of learning, implement the principles of OBE, use a range of teaching methods and encourage learners to participate actively and confidently in the learning process. The course is designed to help the individual who is not—or at least not yet—a professional trainer. The focus is on the supervisor, manager or brand new trainer who has been asked to present or train a group of individuals—a task for which he or she has little prior experience.
