People are an organisation’s most valuable asset. Well trained people can massively leverage performance in your organisation plus ensure that understanding, knowledge and skills are passed on in a consistent and systematic way, leading to greater employee confidence and a positive customer experience.
Becoming a trainer is not just about being an expert in a particular field, it requires an insight into how others learn and being able to impart information and teach a skill in a way that is simple and easy to understand, yet essentially meeting the standards required within your organisation. For this good communication skills is essential as is the ability to assess how your learners are doing be it in a group or one to one. Our unique Train the Trainer programme will help you understand and experience the skills needed in training others successfully in a dynamic, multi-sensory format that will dramatically accelerate acquisition and application of knowledge.

  • Determine, through group work and facilitated discussion the best approach from a number of models of training proposed. Learner will then carry out practical exercises with peers firstly in the classroom to develop safety and confidence, working towards work based training to develop skill and embed the knowledge
  • Based on specific work environment, learners will receive theory input, have an opportunity for reflection, which will cumulate in building a learning intervention which learners will create themselves on what approach works best to ensure consistency when training others.
  • Facilitated discussion and reflection around best practise in communicating effectively in the context of what works best in their organisation. Skills practise using new skills with tutor and peer observation and feedback. Skills practise to embed the learning focusing on effective communication.

  • Theory input and group exercises around how best to self-evaluate and develop self-awareness for personal development and to support others. Group/sub group discussion on how to self-evaluate and development of self-evaluation process and agreed actions around this and follow up reflective practise based on next steps.

How do we train and support you?

Expand/Collapse Expand/Collapse

Building on over 40 years combined experience in human resource learning and development; the tutors utilize an experiential learning approach to their programs. This methodology of learning provides an opportunity for learners to engage with, experience and apply the learning in a practical way and also provides the opportunity for learners to receive feedback on their newly applied skills. The opportunity is also provided to learners to reflect on the full learning experience and how this might be of value to them in the achievement of their learning goals.

To assist and continue with skills development, we facilitate via email a post learning reflective practice utilising skills practice sessions recorded during the course. This assists delegates in embedding new learning, gives further support and enables them to define any further actions required.  This program offers one to one or group coaching as an additional element to further support the delegate and embed the learning process.

What They SayWhat They Say

I loved how interactive the course was and how Maura and Gina really tailored it to Waters Technologies. I really feel that everyone has taken something from this because I know I have. There is nothing I would change about the course. The tutors really listened to what I asked for and delivered
