Participants and Requirements

This five-day workshop is for those who are new to delivering training sessions or who wish to refresh their existing skills. It is for professionals, managers and anyone involved in the development of others who would like to improve their learning delivery skills as well as for trainers in the training function. It is also useful for those persons who are responsible for: training within change projects; developing sales skills of sales teams; providing training on IT applications and other functional areas. Traditional trainers will continue to require these skills despite the growing importance of e-learning. E-learning can effectively teach knowledge and some skills but not all. The skills which cannot be taught through e-learning will continue to require training, either through one-to-one coaching or through face-to-face learning events.
