Train the Trainer: Essential Skills for the Occasional Trainer



Personal Effectiveness.


Working within a Team.

About this course:

If you do not deliver training on a regular basis yet need to train/brief colleagues/students once in a while, this course will help you think through what is important and structure the event for maximum impact.

Planning and preparation are key! The ability to present your material effectively is critical too given there is usually only one chance to get it right, but the application of a few simple tools and techniques can help ensure this happens.

Learning outcomes:


As a result of attending this course, delegates will be able to:.

- Identify the key objectives that need to be achieved by your training session, and ensure every learning activity is captured in order to achieve the objectives.

- Apply a range of robust techniques to ensure that the design and structure of the session delivers the learning objectives.

- Integrate a range of learning activities and delivery methods to ensure that the event has the maximum learning effect for the delegates.

- Design appropriate learning materials to support the session, including effective use of visual aids, PowerPoint and handouts.

- Deliver a short training session that will apply the range of techniques learnt and provide an opportunity for reflection, feedback and further development.

Who should attend this course:

This course is designed for Professional Service Staff who deliver training sessions only on an occasional or ad-hoc basis.

Presenter: Sadie Sharpe from Sharp Transformations Ltd

Before the course:

Delegates will be led through a number of exercises to apply the tools and techniques to a training topic of their choice, and towards the end of the day, deliver a short 5 minute mini-teach session to practice a range of delivery skills.

The workshop allows for time to refine the content / delivery of this 5 minute mini-teach but not enough time to write it from scratch.

Therefore delegates will need to prepare the content in advance by producing a short 5 minute session plan, plus ONE visual aid (eg flipchart / picture / handout etc), but NOT a PowerPoint presentation.

Learning Provider: This course is administered by People Development; please contact for more details.
