Training in a Week

If you are new to training or training is part of your role, and you want to understand how to be effective at it, our Training in a Week programme provides a useful introduction.

The sessions are from 9am to 1pm each day for a week so that you can go back to work in the afternoons. Buy the end of the week you will be able to answer questions such as:

  • How do I know whether the person I sent on a course has learned anything?
  • Was the learning a good return on the investment made?
  • Who in my organisation has the most urgent training needs?
  • What talent must I develop as a top priority?
  • How do I design training to suit all my learners?
  • How do I ensure the training does what it is supposed to do?
  • How do I engage my learners?
  • How do I control my nerves when in the classroom?
  • Would coaching be useful in my organisation?
  • Would a mentoring scheme be beneficial to my organisation?
