Today you will be covering “Train the Trainer”.

Key Learning Objectives
Note the key learning objectives for this session.

As you work through the slides and exercises, think of a real life example of a training session that you may need to give in the future.

Therefore you 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 you time in the long run, as you will have started preparing your training session as part of this session!

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

Exercise – Training Tools
Now that you understand some of the ‘training techniques’ you can use, let’s look at some ‘Training TOOLS’ to help make your 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 you use in our training session?
What will give you variety?

Think about what training 'tools' you will use for your training session.

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.
