Train the trainer

Train the Trainer

A Chinese proverb says “Give a man a fish and feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and feed him for life” When we are given the opportunity to train someone we have a golden opportunity to inspire and help them to develop in their career. With a few key principles we can help the learner to learn effectively.


By the end of the workshop you will have:
• A framework for designing effective training sessions based on brain friendly principles and how learners learn
• Designed 2 short training sessions using the 4 phase process
• Tips for facilitating training and managing groups of learners
• Practised and received feedback to help you to further develop your training design and delivery
• Suggested methods for evaluating training
