Train the Trainer

The transfer of skills


Learning organisations know how much competitive advantage relies upon the control, diffusion and application of knowledge. Many view e-methods as one answer. What, then, is the role of the ‘live’ trainer? S/he remains a guarantor of the ultimate goal of every training programme. Surpassing the simple exchange of knowledge, this is to ensure that participants translate knowing into doing – transferring knowledge into practice.

This programme is for the trainer whose responsibility is to:

  • Create training content
  • Improve existing content
  • Transmit content in an ‘energising’ way
  • Maximise the return on investment from participants

Who's it for
