3-day Train the Trainer

Our 3-Day Train the Trainer Course

An innovative and motivational Train the Trainer course

"The best and most interactive training course I have attended."


When it comes to training the trainers, we are experts in the field. Whether you are new to training and facilitation or have a number of years experience, this training for trainers course helps you see ways in which you can become a better, more effective trainer.

The course is intensive and delivered over two days, exploring areas such as learning styles, training resources, delivery styles and evaluation. It consists of five trainer-led sessions followed by a micro-training session, where you will have an opportunity to demonstrate your training skills.

If you deliver workplace training then this course will be of particular interest to you. It focuses on one-to-one and small group delivery as well as demonstration techniques. Our Train the Trainer courses are regularly delivered to many industries including the care sector, automotive, food production, off-shore, recycling, adult education, aviation, hair and beauty, housing, training and retail.


At the end of the course you will be able to:

   - Recognise the different learning styles and adapt your training accordingly

   - Plan and design training to ensure learning objectives are met

   - Effectively run a training session from start to finish


The sessions are as follows:

Unit 1 How We Learn
This unit looks closely at the four stages of learning and how the learning styles of your delegates will help to structure the way you deliver your training sessions

Unit 2 Starting a Training Session
 This unit explores everything that needs to be done behind the scenes prior to delivering a training session. It also looks at how to start a training session, the causes of potential barriers and techniques for overcoming these barriers

Unit 3 Delivering Training
Unit 3 looks at the importance of training aids, using open questions to increase communication and identify knowledge, delivery types, feedback techniques and assessment

Unit 4 Ending a Training Session
This unit looks at techniques to bring your training session to a successful conclusion, as well as the importance of evaluation/feedback from the delegates and your own self-evaluation of the training delivered

Unit 5 Planning and Designing
Unit 5 incorporates everything that has been learned in the previous units to explore ways to plan a successful training session. It looks at aims and objectives/learning outcomes, and considerations for developing a training plan

Unit 6 Micro-training
The final unit of the course involves each delegate delivering a 10-minute training session to their peers - a chance to put theory into practice. It will be a structured session based on many of the techniques learned throughout the course.
