As an in-house trainer you will have to speak in front of staff and colleagues or make presentations to large audiences. To the inexperienced presenter/trainer the first reaction is one of fear and panic however with the correct training, preparation and practice it is possible to become sufficiently skilled to actively enjoy the experience. Effective presentation demands attention to both preparation and delivery.
Knowledge of the correct delivery method to choose is essential so that trainees maximize the learning experience. As a trainer you must be familiar with the four steps of the Systematic Training Cycle. Step one focuses on the Training Needs of the learner (Training Needs Analysis). This task is often overlooked as trainers may believe that the existing training course will automatically meet the need. Once the exact need has been established the lesson plan for the training course can be developed. The lesson plan will give the trainer the structure and discipline to deliver good training on a consistent basis.
There are three objectives to presentation, to inform by imparting knowledge or information to a target audience, to bring about change in attitude, behaviour or performance and finally to engage or entertain the target audience so that the learning experience is memorable. This course is designed to equip the presenters with the necessary skill, knowledge and confidence to deliver on the above objectives.Collapse
