Train the Trainer

Every company has internal training and coaching happening all the time.

There are many instances where line managers, supervisors or specialists need to pass on knowledge and skills to others in the organisation.

If, like so many other organisations, you need to make your  training budget go further, you might consider preparing the most able and keenest of your staff and colleagues to deliver training in-house. Our popular Train the trainer course is an ideal platform to prepare them to do so. You will learn how to adapt training to suit different learning processes and practice ways to keep attention by delivering stimulating sessions.

The prime responsibility for training, coaching and developing others often rests with the manager and as they depend on their staff’s competence the importance of developing a capable, effective team cannot be underestimated. This ‘Train the Trainer’ workshop is designed to help managers and others develop effective training and coaching techniques which will improve the skills and ability of those around them.

Our course is aimed at those who want to effectively train employees, colleagues or clients in an interesting, engaging and confident manner, in a way that is practical. Delegates will gain new skills, knowledge and understanding about how best to train others.
