Train The Trainer


2-Day Workshop


Empower your trainers with a toolbox chock-full of skills and knowledge that will enable them to effectively pass relevant learning information on to delegates - and ensure every training session you do is a roaring success!

Standing in front of a class filled with adult learners in the position of trainer, facilitator or presenter is a somewhat daunting task.

Many companies have specific systems and processes, leaving them will little choice but to perform training themselves.

Internal training is often far more cost effective than sending staff to external providers.  However, many people who are asked to train have never had formal training on the appropriate skills to prepare and present training.  This can make all the difference in the success of a training programme.

Whether as a result of employee or process changes, ensuring your people receive consistent and useful training is vital for the success of any organisation. Effective on-the-job training engages employees and ensures they understand and retain the information and skills required to do their job well. This workshop provides training skills for the workplace trainer.

You will learn practical strategies and techniques to deliver training in a way that is meaningful and useful to participants. Including an insight into the needs of adult learners, and the common barriers and solutions which a trainer may experience during the training session.

Become an effective trainer - Discover everything you need to know about:

  • Learning styles and preferences
  • Engaging communication
  • Presentation and questioning techniques
  • The adult learning process
  • Assessment techniques

The success of any learning session is reliant on the effectiveness of the communication that takes place

In this 2-day growth cycle, communication theory is covered and discussed; delegates are introduced to active listening skills. To further build skill as trainers, adult learning styles and facilitation skills are explored. This information is then incorporated into the learner's experience with the specific intent of directing them towards the mindset of "allowing people to learn" on class.

Finally, future trainers are alerted to their distracting habits during an unprepared presentation, and will get ample opportunity to develop their questioning skills.
