This one-day course has been designed for delegates who are new to training design and delivery and for delegates that simply wish to sharpen their training skills. 

 

Course Aims and Objectives

  • The programme is highly participative and experiential – participants design and deliver actual training sessions during the course.
  • The program content is based on time-tested training principles including modules on: learning theory, setting objectives, design, delivery, use of visual aids, audience facilitation and evaluation methods. We have placed a great emphasis on the use of positive reinforcement to develop the skills needed to design and deliver quality training programmes.
  • All sessions are covered in a comprehensive Train The Trainer course manual that doubles as a useful post-course reference for future development

Course Programme

Delegates will be competent to design, implement and present both short form and long form training courses. By the end of this course delegates will have the skills to:

  • Design a training programme
  • Organise the logistics of a training course
  • Deliver the training to desired objectives
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of the training
  • Assess the competence of the delegates

Pre/Post Course Support

Prior to conducting a course your training co-ordinator will have had the opportunity to liaise with one of our lead trainers who will begin to breakdown your companies objectives.

A key part of their process is understanding what led to your decision to improve your team.

We will incorporate all your current training materials to build in effective role plays and discussions suited specifically to your organisational needs.

Before each course delegates will have completed:

  • The pre-course questionnaire (Including personal objectives for the session)
  • A 5 minute training session that will be delivered during the course.

After the course each delegate will receive:

  • A CPD Accredited Certificate
  • A Comprehensive course manual
  • Additional resources beneficial to your continued learning
  • Video analysis and critique (Depending on delegate numbers)

Your organisation will receive:

  • Constructive feedback on the delegates progression
  • A roadmap for continued learning specifically to your needs

How to write and structure training

“What am I going to say?” is one of the fears of new trainers. A good course will follow an identifiable sequence and satisfy the group’s expectations. We will examine two simple and highly effective methods of structuring courses and generating meaningful content.

The importance of planning, and timing

With the plethora of training options at your disposal, it is vital to plan the one which will achieve the training objectives using the best use of the available resources. We will examine the ways that training sessions can be put together to maximise learning opportunities within the time allocated.

Learn how to pitch your approach at the right level

It’s not what you know, it’s how you say it. We will examine in detail the ways of increasing delegate communication skills and how to relate the training concept to all levels of knowledge, experience and intellect.

Generate innovative and creative ideas to stimulate and maintain interest

People learn quicker and retain more information if training is conducted in a way which allows them to get involved, challenge, participate and enjoy the process.  How to increase individual creativity is the challenge of most trainers. We will demonstrate ways of analysing and releasing latent creativity.

Delivery skills maximising body language and communication

The old adage “It’s not what you say but how you say it” is as relevant to training delivery as ever. As we examine visual and vocal images and how they impact upon communication, delegates can assess their own presentation styles and maximise on their strengths as a presenter.

The importance of constructive feed back

Critique is an important part of a skills based training session. Delegates will be shown techniques to analyse and evaluate trainee performance; give clear, accurate feedback to promote understanding and build repeatable skills.

Do’s and Don’ts of technical presentations

We will highlight some of the common pitfalls trainers sometimes make when presenting and training technical subjects. We will also give tips and techniques about making this type of presentation interesting and impactful.

Communication skills

One-to-one training demands superior communication and feedback skills from the trainer. Through discussion and role-play we will allow delegates to understand how to explain, question, review, critique and constructively criticise trainee’s performance. We will examine concepts of coaching which are non-directional and allow the trainee to develop their thinking and decision making processes.

Handling difficult trainees

Difficult and uncomfortable situations can occur due to a clash of personalities. By recognising the characteristics and behaviours people demonstrate, delegates will be able to engage proven techniques to avoid conflict.

All our in-house training is tailored to your requirements, this is our standard In-House Agenda but bear in mind the course could be tailored to your needs.

 

All delegates will receive a CPD Accredited Certificate upon completion
