How to Develop Training Sessions: a BIG Skills Day

Thinktank, Birmingham 

17th October 2018 10.00am-4.00pm (coffee and registration from 9.30am)

What is this Skills Day about?

Would you like to share your skills and knowledge with others? Have you delivered training sessions before but need some help with developing your own? We are offering a skills day focused on how to develop a training session.

This day will cover: 

  • How  to create an inclusive learning environment 
  • Learning styles and different ways to engage learners
  • How to get started on developing your own training session 

Who is the day for?

This Skills Day is for anyone who has never delivered training or who has limited experience of delivering training.  The goals of the day are to help you understand what makes a great learning experience and how to develop effective training sessions. Very little previous experience is needed for you to get something out of the day. But please note, this Skills Day is only able to provide an introduction to training and probably isn't suitable for people who have lots of experience or have previously completed a Train the Trainer course.
