How will this course help you?

The current economic climate means that more and more companies are looking to bring their training programmes in house. This is a great idea - after all, someone internal will know much more about the workings of the organisation than an external provider.

However, if you have been earmarked to deliver this training, you may be slightly daunted by the prospect! You have the knowledge and the expertise but can you deliver the message effectively in a training room?

Never fear! We offer a comprehensive 2 day course designed to help you overcome all the barriers that you might encounter in a training room. You will leave our programme enthused, inspired and ready to deliver training in a professional and effective manner.

No previous experience of training is required, but those with previous experience will also find the course rewarding.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Describe the research you need to do before designing a training event
  • Identify different learning styles and understand how these influence training design
  • List the key steps in designing a training event
  • Use many useful trainer tools and techniques that will enable you to DELIVER a fully interactive training event.
  • Understand the importance of evaluating training

It's not what we do; it's the way that we do it...

As with all our courses, our mission to provide "entertaining training" will drive this interactive event. However, just as importantly, the workshop structure will always be logical, easy to follow and broken down into bite-size objectives.
