Delivering Training Events Effectively (1 day)
This course was developed to meet a very specific need: to support individuals at all levels to deliver pre-prepared training packages, such as the rollout of new systems or procedures across a company or project. The course has elements in common with Presentation Skills, but in this case the emphasis is on using activities which involve learners.

The course is designed to provide an introduction to different trainee involvement techniques and their application to a practical training session. The aim is to enable an individual to understand, customise and deliver a training package appropriately for the audience. Ideally delegates should already have skills in assertiveness; recognising body language; active listening; and basic presentation skills.

Please note this is NOT a ‘Train-the-Trainer’ course.
