Improve the effectiveness of your training and coaching

Remember that we're always here to help, so please ask us if you can't find what you want

Every company will benefit from Train the Trainer training because every company has internal training and coaching happening all the time.
Do not be constrained by the view that trainers are specialists in their fields: of course, this is often true, but there are many instances where line managers, supervisors or specialists need to pass on knowledge and skills to others in the organisation.
So everyone from full-time instructors to those providing occasional mentoring or guidance will gain invaluable skills from Train the Trainer training.

Assessing Training Needs – If you are responsible for developing the skills of a group or groups of people, a Training Needs Analysis is an important basis for your work.
Training Needs Analysis teaches you how to identify the training and development needs of your organisation, the groups within it and the individuals who work there.

Preparing Your Programme – It is important to develop programmes that are meaningful, practical, and will benefit both trainees and your organisation.
Developing a Structured Training Programme shows you how to set objectives, design programmes and sessions, and use evaluation to assess and improve.

Training Delivery – There are ways to enhance your own style and the format of the training that will bring your sessions to life.
Delivering a Great Training Session teaches you how to deliver training courses in a way that makes them interesting, enjoyable and highly effective.

You as a Trainer – Successful trainers can work in different ways, but they will all use the same key skills that are necessary to get the most from their audience.
Being an Effective Trainer enables you to improve your skills in a structured way so that you are more effective in getting results from the training you deliver.

Fast Track Training – We also take the essential elements of the above three courses and condense them into an intensive one-day workshop
Train the Trainer Essentials focuses on practical techniques and disciplines required for a training role, and develops communication and key tutoring skills.

On-The-Job Training – Very often, structured classes are either not possible or impractical: in these situations, hands-on coaching is the most effective option.
Coaching Skills provides a practical understanding of how to give both support and challenging opportunities to employees, and knowing how and when to coach.
