The purpose of this 2-day intensive course is to turn you into a confident, influential trainer that delivers results. You will learn that delivering a good course is about following a series of fundamental principles.

This course is designed to maximise knowledge and to facilitate skill transfer. It is educational and entertaining and, crucially, it is designed to be memorable.

This is an extremely hands-on course. Numerous exercises have been designed thoughtfully to help you learn and memorise what has been taught during the course and to give you an opportunity to try it out for yourself.

Through focused exercises, you will get a chance to practice specific aspects of training people in a controlled environment. We believe this is the best way to master training skills. By working together with other participants in the course, you can see how each technique is used in practice and how to apply them to your own courses.

== Complements the Popular Train the Trainer Book

This course is designed specifically to complement our popular book, “Train the Trainer: The Art of Training Delivery”, with the intention to get you practice delivery skills in a supportive environment while receiving feedback.

In this highly practical course you will learn:

On Method

  • How crucial it is to understand learning styles and how to use them
  • How to centre the training on learners rather than centring it on the trainer or the content.
  • What it means to be a facilitating trainer as opposed to a lecturing trainer.
  • How to establish rapport with your delegates and generate trust
  • How to make your content more memorable by appealing to all senses

On Setup

  • What to do exactly from the start of the course to the end of the first break, to win your delegates over and make them believe they are attending a “good one”
  • How to take advantage of the five seconds rule in organising and setting up the physical training environment.
  • How to use visual tools without disengaging, boring or distracting the delegates.
  • How to sequence your content and training from the moment delegates arrive to the moment they leave. You will learn the course structure and see why so many training courses fail because they don’t follow it.
  • How to formulate objectives to increase learning.
  • Why you must Establish the Need and how to do it before you embark on teaching an adult on any subject. Learn why the failure to do so is the primary reason that teaching fails.
  • How to handle questions to meet delegates’ needs.
  • How to finish a course so that delegates leave with a positive feeling knowing what they have learned and why.

On Expression

  • How to feel confident.
  • What actions and thoughts help you control your nervousness.
  • How you can avoid having non-participating delegates by taking pre-emptive actions and avoid all kinds of future problems.
  • What you should be thinking about, just before you start the course, and how it can help you immensely with your training.
  • How to communicate with intention through your body language, voice and expression.

On Teaching

  • How you should distribute your time to increase learning and avoid being a bore
  • How to engage and keep delegate’s attention by using the four-step engagement sequence.
  • What are the four styles of addressing questions and when to use them to engage and check delegates’ understanding.
  • How to formulate questions to make delegates think and maximise learning.
  • How to get the delegates practice the skills by going through useful exercises. Learn how to increase participation and learning.

== Deliver a Demo and Receive Feedback

You are asked to prepare a 10 minute demo training session on a topic of your choice before attending the course. During the course you will be shown how to structure and deliver an inspiring, entertaining and informative course. You will then modify and improve your demo session and deliver it to the class at the end of the 2-day course. You will receive thorough feedback on your session structure and delivery.

Who is this course for?

  • People who are new to a teaching role or experienced and want to systematically improve their training delivery skills
  • Subject matter experts who want to develop their training skills
  • High performance trainers who want to maximise their training impact
  • Trainers who want to learn participative techniques
  • Managers who want to empower their staff

We keep the number of participants attending the course to a maximum of 6 to set learning at an optimal level.
