People are an organisation’s most valuable asset. Well trained people can massively leverage performance in your organisation through passing understanding, knowledge and skills on in a systematic, interesting, and consistently adult focused way.

This programme consists of 5 days of extensive insight, exploration, discussion and practice of the skills required to prepare, plan, and deliver training in business or the community. The programme will examine the theories that underpin best practice in all areas of training delivery, including how to effectively engage learners in the learning process and evaluate its effectiveness in the context of required learning outcomes. Learners will be invited to engage in a process of reflection and exploration of theoretical models introduced through designed experiential exercises and skills’ practice, which aim to give real learning of how these theories apply to their role as a trainer and the learning outcomes set. Core Trainer Competencies in the delivery and evaluation of training will be demonstrated, practiced and assessed.


What's covered?

Expand/Collapse Expand/Collapse

This programme will be delivered in 5 days over an eight week period.

As this programme is focused towards industry/community-based work settings, learners will have the opportunity to apply their classroom-based learning to real industry/community-based work settings. This will occur during the programme, in the intervening time between the Units, and post-Unit 2, to assist learners in developing their skills and completing necessary assessment requirements.  All potential learners are invited to engage with the tutor in a pre-course one-to-one discussion to establish their requirements and expectations and to determine the suitability of this course to meet their specific learning and development needs. The course structure will be as follows;

One to One pre-course initial contact with the learner

Pre-course learning via Moodle

This programme will run over 8 weeks consisting of the following:

Week 1          Day 1
Week 2          Day 2
Week 2          Online learning (accessible via Moodle) 30 minutes
Week 2 or 3  1 Hour Online Group Tutorial
Week 3          Tutor one-to-one session with each learner 1 hour
Week 4          Day 3
Week 5          Day 4
Week 5          Online based group tutorial session with the class 1 hour
Week 5          Online Learning (accessible via Moodle) 30 minutes
Week 7          Day 5
Week 8          Tutor one-to-one sessions with each learner 1 hour

Course schedules will allow the learner the opportunity to research, reflect, practice skills and embed their learning, with further opportunity for discussion and reflection on shared learning on return to the group.  As indicated above, learners will also have separate one to one interaction with one of the facilitators to discuss and embed their personal learning journey.

Who should participate?

Expand/Collapse Expand/Collapse

The learner will be a full time practicing trainer or individual, in industry or community-based, who has a training requirement to their role and wishes to understand more about, and develop, their skills in the area of training delivery and evaluation.

The learner could also be a person who aspires to, or is wishing to, move into a trainer role and wants to explore and understand the theory underpinning best practice in this field while having an opportunity to put this into practice in a safe environment. It is understood that the learner will already have business/community specific competence for what their organisation requires.

Learners will typically have encountered challenges within their role as a trainer which they will be encouraged to explore and practice in light of theory introduced, and will have the opportunity to re-examine these through Skills’ Demonstration sessions. It is expected that learners will be currently (or imminently) training one-to-one, or groups of people in business/the community towards a specific set of learning objectives. Learners will be invited to self-assess their own Trainer competence through self-awareness processes such as self-assessment questionnaires, reflection, skills practice and feedback.

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 programmes.  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.

Learners will also be introduced to SQT’s Moodle platform to facilitate and enhance Learner communications and Tutor/Learner interactions.

The following are samples of resources and activities which may be accessible via Moodle:

  • Programme related documentation and links to further learning information
  • Custom designed learning objects

i think the venue was quite small for the training especially when it came to the skill presentation and the last day was far too warm but out of the control of the course
