Welcome to Train the Trainer
Let your team know that today you will be covering “Train the Trainer”.

Key Learning Objectives
Let your team know the key learning objectives for this session.

Note to Trainer:
As you work through the slides and exercises with your team, ask your team to think of a real life example of a training session that they may need to give in the future.

Therefore the team can be working on a real life situation during the exercises, rather than a hypothetical scenario, and will get the most out of the session.

In addition, it may save your team time in the long run, as they will have started preparing their training session as part of this session!

1. Structuring and Designing a Training Session
Let’s first start with how to structure and design a training session.

6 Steps
READ through the slide.

We’ll now go through each step in detail.

Step 2. Research
READ the slide.

Step 3. Brainstorm
Now onto Step 3 – Brainstorm.

This is an IMPORTANT step when generating ideas and content for your training session.

You need to ask yourself some key questions to generate ideas and content.

READ the slide.

Step 3. Brainstorm
So how do you create a mind map?

READ through the slide.

Note to trainer: You may wish to draw a diagram on a white board to assist.

Step 6. Review Logic and Flow
Now that you have added the content – let’s review the logic and flow.

Step 6 – Review the Logic and Flow.

Here are some questions to remember when reviewing the logic and flow.

READ through the slide.

Often it’s a good idea to get a colleague to review your work.


Training Techniques & Tools
Training tools and techniques are essential to turn your presentation into a learning experience.

Their overriding purpose is to assist knowledge retention.

READ the slide.

Remember, your adult learners need to get involved in the training session to retain the knowledge.

Exercise – Training Tools
Now that we understand some of the ‘training techniques’ we can use, let’s look at some ‘Training TOOLS’ to help make our training session as effective as possible.

Training Tools, as the name suggests, are actual tools that you can use to help deliver the session.

EXERCISE 7: ‘Training Tools’.

What training tools can we use in our training session?
What will give us variety?

Ask the team to stay in the same pairs as the previous exercise and to come up with some ideas for training tools.

After a few minutes get the pairs to share their answers with the group. Go round the room with each pair calling out a learning tool until ideas run out.

REVEAL the answers with the next slide.

Training Tools
READ through the slide.


Ask your think about what training 'tools' they will use for their training session.

Give your team a few minutes to make some notes.

Sample Learning Plan
Finally you need a Learning Plan.

This plan will keep your session on track, focussed and on time!

The learning plan brings together everything we have talked about in this session.

Your lesson plan should show times, tools, techniques and the topics you want to cover.

You must have a learning plan but keep it very simple. Remember it is the anchor and is key to reducing your stress and nerves.

You can build your own from the template provided.
