Trainer's Toolkit (Live online)

Recommend course:

Description

Whether you train as part of your job or are asked to deliver the odd workshop, this practical workshop will leave you better equipped to deliver training – even in an online environment. You will learn a variety of training tools and techniques that work both face-to-face, and online. You will then have opportunities to practice and gain confidence to use them.

Who should attend:

This workshop is ideal for professionals who need the essentials of effective training delivery as part of their job. It is particularly useful for ‘subject-matter experts’ who need to develop the tools to train others.

Learning objectives:

  • Use a logical, easy-to-follow training structure
  • Understand how to meet the learning needs of participants
  • Learn and practice tools and techniques for effective training delivery

Course topics:

  • Creating a supportive learning environment – online or face-to-face
  • Setting up your training so everyone knows what to expect
  • Using stories and examples to bring ideas to life
  • Creating simple, effective visual aids without resorting to “death-by-PowerPoint”
  • Managing your participants’ energy levels and attention span with appropriate state changes
  • Keeping the training varied and interesting, and your participants engaged
  • Applying simple ways to test your audience’s understanding of your material
  • Setting up, running, and debriefing training activities
  • Encouraging active participation in group discussions

Course format:

This workshop is highly practical and interactive. We take a maximum of 8 people, which is the optimal number for an online workshop. There are multiple opportunities to practice and we follow each exercise with a feedback session.

Participants are taught a constructive and supportive feedback model which they use to coach each other.

Split into two consecutive “part” days: 12pm – 4pm, 10am – 2pm

Presenter:

Trish Stonestreet
