Develop skills as a trainer and deliver engaging, learner-focused training sessions
This two-day programme will provide a depth of personal insight and will enhance your ability to confidently deliver a training course that fully involves and engages the learners. In line with the principles being taught, the programme is learner-focused. You will get the benefit of Kay's extensive experience and knowledge of training, and you will also learn from your own experiences.
You'll consider the learning process, explore training needs and plan a training session. You will also be able to discuss solutions to problems that arise and difficult situations experienced by trainers.
Please bring along a 10-minute pre-prepared training session with handouts, on any subject of your choice, ready to deliver at the start of the programme to the other learners.
