Train the Trainer

One day / Two half days | Online or in person

Whether you're manager sharing new skills and local knowledge with new starters or a team deploying a new service to an organisation, there is more to training than just talking to people. This course covers a range of techniques and skills needed to construct and deliver an effective training session on any topic, ranging from short 1 to 1 briefings to large workshops with dozens of attendees.

The course focuses on communication and people, and takes a look under the hood at some of the tips and tricks trainers use to understand their trainees to ensure everyone engages and gets the most out of training.
