Train the Trainer – Communications Training

Duration: 3 days

Course Overview

The quality of output is directly linked to the quality of input. As a result, how effective a staff member is at executing their role is very much dependent on how they have been trained.

Training is more than simply the conveyance of a person’s knowledge; it involves the ability to structure the information in a logical and easy to understand manner as well as developing skills and confidence of the learners. This requires detailed planning and preparation to maximise the learning outcomes as well as deploying an engaging delivery style that holds the audience’s attention. To aid with this, our Train the Trainer courses in Northern Ireland offer the perfect opportunity for individuals to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to become competent and impactful trainers.
