Train the Trainer

interactive training

Excellent training is lively, engaging, interactive, enjoyable – and effective.

Excellent trainers help people learn through activities, games, discussions, questions and a stimulating environment.

Do you want to learn how to deliver that sort of training?

I love to work with trainers and organisations who share my passion for learning and development. People who have a commitment to quality and who are open to new and creative ways to deliver training that really works. People who want their training to make a real difference.

Does that sound like you?…Well, let’s work together!

debbie-hollingsworthI have attended three of Alan’s workshops and as a result I have made permanent and valuable changes to my own training and presenting. His style is warm, humorous and very approachable. If Alan doesn't know something about the art of training and presenting then it really isn't worth knowing. Thanks Alan!

How can I help you become an outstanding trainer?

If you want to be a great trainer, it’s not enough to be a really good presenter (if you want to do that, look here) you need to become an excellent facilitator.

So, in my Train the Trainer courses, I’ll show you how to:

  • create an attractive and stimulating environment where people can learn effectively
  • use activities, discussion, questioning, pair and group work to keep people involved and engaged
  • adapt your content and delivery to cater for different groups and different ways of learning.

I’ll also show you how to get people in a positive and receptive state for learning (and we all know they’re not always like that when they turn up) – because, unless you do that, nothing else will work anyway. Most Train the Trainer courses don’t even mention this, by the way, but it’s vital!

You’ll take away loads of practical tips and techniques based on current research and on my 25 years of experience in delivering training, so:

  • Your training will have more impact
  • You’ll be far more creative and flexible in your approach
  • You’ll never be short of ideas to liven up your training
  • You’ll get a better response, and better feedback, from your learners
  • You’ll feel more relaxed, confident and better prepared when you have to deliver a course.

And you and your learners will all enjoy your training a lot more!

sue-creeleyAlan’s enthusiasm, knowledge and experience are second to none. His Train the Trainer course was full of insight and ideas as to what great training really looks like. Alan’s warm humour ensured a fun packed but incredibly useful day. I would absolutely recommend this course for both new and established trainers. His cartoons are pretty good too!

How can I help you and your organisation to make sure your training really works?

  • I can make your training design easier, quicker and more effective (and tied in to your business objectives)
  • I can make your training delivery more exciting, engaging and memorable (so people learn more quickly and easily and they put what they learn into practice)
  • I can work with your trainers, and other stakeholders in your organisation, to make sure that your training is well-designed, well-delivered and gets results tied to the objectives of the business (so it justifies the time, effort and money you’ve invested in it)

Some ways we could work together

  • I can deliver a Train the Trainer course for your team, tailored to suit the specific needs of your trainers and your organisation, from an intensive 1 day workshop such as How To Run Great Training Workshops to a comprehensive 3 day programme like Transform Your Training
  • I can observe your trainers in action and give them specific feedback on their performance and on the course materials and design
  • I can work with your training team to review course design, materials and manuals to make sure they achieve their objectives and are based on current learning principles
  • We can start from scratch and I can help with the whole training cycle, from needs analysis to design, delivery and evaluation

However we work together, you can expect the result to be that your training is:

  • Relevant
  • Timely
  • Well-designed
  • Well-delivered

and has a lasting impact on the performance of your people and your organisation – which is the whole point, after all.

People I’ve worked with say that I have “re-energised” their training and left them “buzzing with ideas” to help them get better results.

I have attended a lot of Train the Trainer courses and found that this one has been the most rewarding. It has re-energised my training.
