ILM - Train the Trainer Award


Program Description

There is no secret to becoming a successful trainer; it is about equipping yourself with the essential skills to deliver an engaging training session, meeting both the business's and the trainee's needs.

Our consultants have established themselves as experts in the field of training and they will be able to guide you through the training process from start to finish, ensuring that you leave the programme with the relevant skills to achieve tangible results.

Our 2-day Train The Trainer course provides the essential skills for people that are new to training, or simply wishing to refresh their skills. It will guide you through the full training cycle:

  • Identify - needs analysis (scoping needs whilst managing stakeholders)
  • Design - how to truly be the architect of masterful training material that will hook your audience
  • Delivery - covering aspects of anchoring, delivering with humour, claptraps and many, many more
  • Evaluation - how to measure the commercial validity of your training

Participant numbers are limited on our Train The Trainer course to a maximum of 6 in order to ensure more personal time with the trainer.
