Training is an essential element of development in any organisation. Being knowledgeable and continuing to learn throughout your career can make you a very valuable asset. We also know that training and orientation (or ‘onboarding’) for newly hired employees is a key factor in retention.
This two-day workshop is designed for a trainer who wants to develop training programs that are meaningful, practical, and will benefit both trainees and the organisations they work for.
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know other participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop.
This session will explore some things that need to be considered before committing to developing a training program. We will also look at some situations where training is not appropriate and some alternatives to training.
Participants will look at how to determine what training is really necessary using the ICE method: Isolate, Consult, and Evaluate.
The Training Model
Next, we will explore a seven-step instructional systems design model. We will focus on adult learning and some basic principles that apply to developing training.
The Program’s Basic Outline
Next, participants will learn how to create the basic outline for the program by writing objectives for knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA’s).
Of course, it’s hard to know what you want to teach without knowing how you’ll know you’ve taught it! This session will look at evaluation methods and how they tie into learning objectives.
Defining Your Approach
This session will look at a basic method that participants can use to design their program. We will also explore some specific learning tools, including demonstrations, case studies, guided teaching, study groups, role plays, games and simulations, and e-learning.
Researching and Developing Content
Now that we have a framework for the design of the program, participants will learn where to find the content. We will also talk about fads and copyright issues.
Pre-Assignments in Training
This session will explore the value of pre-assignments through a pre-assignment.
Choosing Openings and Energizers
We will talk about how to start off your training, different types of games, and some ways to make sure your game doesn’t fall flat.
Training Instruments, Assessments, and Tools
Pre-designed testing tools can help with many training topics. This session will discuss how to make the most of these tools.
Creating Supporting Materials
Most trainers prepare notes for themselves to use as they are teaching their program. This session will look at some other materials that can enhance your training program, including student guides, handouts, and electronic slides.
Testing the Program
Participants will discuss ways to test their training program before they deliver it.
Participants will learn how to organise and write a training proposal, and then they will apply the knowledge to a case study.
We will discuss some ways to ensure that your proposal gets approved.
Pulling it all Together
To conclude the course, participants will work together to create individual action plans.
At the end of the day, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and speak with the trainer.
For details on the differences between “in-house” and “all-inclusive” please see below
We’re keen to ensure that all the participants get the most out of the day, so ideally, we would love to have a room that has natural daylight, space to move, sit and write / work in small groups and utilise the wall space.
It helps to have the equipment provided but we can provide screen, projectors, flip charts and sound etc.
The “in-house” price includes training materials for all participants and a brilliant trainer… come coach… come facilitator.
The price excludes facilitator travel / accommodation (if required) and VAT.
Quite simply, we take all the hassle, stress and time required to organise your course off-site.
We will provide;
We think this is great value and ideal for companies who do not have the resource or time to organise the training.
Please see “Terms” for specific details on our all-inclusive offer.
Full Course Terms and Conditions are available upon request and are provided during the booking process.
