Train the Trainer Course


It can feel really terrifying standing up in front of others as the ‘EXPERT’. People expect a lot from a trainer when they go on a course, and a ‘typical’ training puts people to sleep. Spending two days for this training will help you as a trainer – to keep your participants awake – guaranteed! Plus you will be able to successfully transfer the target amount of learning that will make your audience satisfied and keep them coming back for more and more of your sessions.

No matter what kind of training you do – sales, IT skills, financial planning, commercial awareness, interpersonal skills, shop floor skills – you need to be well prepared and able to handle whatever happens in the training room with panache, flair and professionalism. This training will help you to develop a systematic and effective approach to learning and development. If you are new to training it will provide you with the basic skills and knowledge needed as a foundation on which you can later develop the specialist skills of identifying training needs, designing, delivering and evaluating quality learning and training interventions.

Course Objectives:
1. Adapt your style and material to suit the situation

3. Change tack quickly and without fuss
4. Meet people’s needs and expectations
5. Handle your delegates’ anxieties and nervousness
