Training for trainers

Aim of course:For participants to have a firm structure for planning and designing their training courses and, therefore, feel confident when delivering their training.
Objectives for this course are to enable you:
(1) to set realistic objectives before launching into any preparation
(2) to undertake course preparation, based on the objectives, with a clear focus
(3) to share practical ideas and survival tips
Training outcomes: you will acquire and/or develop your own approach to designing and delivering effective training events that are based on the clear objectives that you identify for those events – you will be able to undertake all this with your feet solidly on the ground.

Topics:The cornerstone topic is the setting of course objectives as these need to be kept in sight while deciding on course content, handouts, activities (eg case studies), course publicity, any pre-course contact with participants and course evaluation – so that all these elements are as effective as possible for all those attending your training event. Put simply - setting clear, realistic objectives will help you train without pain!
