Course Description

During this interactive 2-day course, you will be introduced to the four cornerstones of training: methodology, how to setup & structure a course, how to express yourself and how to teach well. The course is designed to help you keep your delegates constantly engaged and make them remember the content through participation and exercises. This course boosts your confidence and authority in the class helping you to keep your delegates ‘glued’ to your course.

Here are common challenges that trainers face when delivering a course:

  • How can you make the delegates excited about the topic and keep them engaged throughout the course?
  • How can you make the delegates believe that you are the best trainer for them in the field?
  • How can you make the delegates remember the contents of the course for years to come?
  • How can you deliver a course that doesn’t come across as pre-scripted and is tailored to them?
  • How should you structure your course to achieve all of the above while keeping the design easy and adaptable for yourself?

The purpose of this 2-day intensive course is to give you a structured approach to overcome these challenges; it will turn you into a confident, influential trainer that delivers.

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Learn how to avoid passive lecturing
  • Learn how to sequence your courses from the beginning to the end
  • How to keep your delegates engaged at all times through easy-to-follow participatory techniques
  • Get to deliver a mini training session and receive feedback from the tutor and other delegates attending the course
  • Be assessed systematically based on a defined criteria which is discussed in the course
  • Get a 120-page detailed workbook and useful checklists
  • Receive video analysis and critique on your training delivery
  • Receive a certificate of achievement
