Trainers are as diverse as the people we train and Being a Better Trainer is specifically designed to improve on what you already do in training, and think about ways that you can deliver even more dynamic and effective training sessions for you and your participants.

Content

This skills-based course will analyse different learning styles theory, training aids and resources, delivery methods and styles, and a range of tools and techniques. We will learn about the training design triangle and managing the material to deliver the appropriate amount of content.  We will look at why we should bother with ice-breakers, energisers and evaluations, what purpose they serve and how they can save you time and promote effectiveness for your training delivery.
