Train the Trainer

Virtually every company utilises training and development for their staff, and delivery is rarely limited to ‘professional’ trainers or those with formal training in this area.

Sharing knowledge is the key to achieving sustainable organisational growth and success, and, to this end, line managers, supervisors, subject experts and specialists need to pass on knowledge and skills to others in the organisation.

Whether you are a manager responsible for developing your team, an HR professional wanting to improve your ability in delivering key messages, or part of an in-house training team, this highly interactive programme will empower you to design and deliver the most effective courses (and learning in other formats) to enable you to maximise the potential in your people.
