Course description

Train the TrainerTrain the Trainer - A 2 day training course with MLP Training in Manchester

Knowing the task to be carried out and being able to do that task does not make someone a trainer.  This two-day course will equip participants with a whole range of training techniques and the necessary underpinning knowledge and theories to apply in real situations.

The course Train the Trainer is highly practical and is designed to teach participants all the ingredients of what makes training work. On the final day, participants are required to deliver an interactive training session with the other delegates, and participate in their training sessions.

Participants will get tutor and peer feedback on their sessions. For this reason the number attendants will be limited to 8 places to ensure personal support and timing for the training sessions.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This Train the Trainer course is designed for anyone who would like to gain the skills to train future training providers.
