A 1-day fast-track Train the Trainer course

Become a better trainer with our 1-day Train the Trainer course

A fast-track trainer training course delivered in a single day for those who are new to the world of training and facilitation

"I now have a better understanding of how to keep focused, manage expectations of training and review relevance of training material."


Train the Trainer Express has been created due to popular demand to meet the needs of groups that are training to be trainers but are unable to attend longer duration courses.

Developed from our highly successful Train the Trainer programme, Train the Trainer Express is an intensive course delivered over a single day; exploring areas such as learning styles, training resources, delivery styles, evaluation and dealing with challenging behaviour. As most people will tell you, entering a training room for the first time can be a daunting and nerve-racking experience, and this course aims to make that experience as easy as possible, introducing you to the basics and helping you to quickly become effective and confident.

As well as classroom-style training, this course is also suitable for trainers involved in on-the-job, one-to-one and small group delivery, including demonstration. Trainers who operate on the factory floor, in retail, shops, offices and workplaces will find this course of great benefit.

"Very good course - the material was informative and prompted me to be more self aware. I genuinely feel I have a better understanding of what is expected of a good trainer."


At the end of the course you will be able to:

Recognise the different learning styles and adapt your training accordingly

Understand how to effectively run a training session from start to finish

Plan and design training to ensure intended learning outcomes are met

"I will now be a more confident trainer and will incorporate the ideas and themes of this course."
