This Train the Trainer course provides an in-depth understanding of the training and facilitation skills necessary for personnel involved in delivering training in 1:1 or 1: group situations. What do world class training functions do and why? This program specifically answers these questions and provides practical guidelines to enable participants to grasp the mindset of an expert trainer/facilitator and appreciate the ‘inner game’ of beliefs and values as they apply to design and to run training courses.
All the main areas of adult learning, training needs analysis, training delivery and training evaluation are covered.
