About the Train the Trainer programme


Latest news – Upcoming Training And Instructional Techniques course

Delighted to say that next week I’m delivering another of the Training and Instructional Techniques courses I designed for the Civil Aviation Authority International at Gatwick Airport.

It’s a public course, for aspiring, new and developing trainers, and for brushing up the basics if it’s been a while.

Subject matter experts are a brilliant resource in your business, and with this three day in classroom course at Gatwick, your SMEs will start their journey to become an extra asset – with the new knowledge, skills and mindsets they need to pass on that expertise to your people.

It’s practical and engaging and on the last day every delegate delivers a short training presentation to the group with discussion and feedback.

If you’d like to book a place or find out about later courses, details here

If you’d like to discuss the course content, let me know.

Train your trainers

Your people need to be able to achieve your organisation’s mission, vision and values – and to do that, you need great trainers.

‘You’re great at your job, so you’ll be great at training it!’

Sound familiar?

It’s a bit like saying ‘you’re a great football player – so you can drive the team bus to the next match!’

But do they understand how and why adults learn, current learning and development thinking, practical training, facilitation and presentation techniques that work?

Training’s a very particular set of knowledge, skills and mindsets – and these can be learned.

Train the Trainer 2-day personal development programme

This programme offers an introduction to essential training skills.

Delegates explore key training topics, with practical elements and individual feedback throughout.

Note – this programme is also available as a three day programme which explores the core topics in more detail and depth. Contact me for further information.
