Open Course: Train the Trainer: Stonebow’s Group Training Certificate (GTC)

9th – 11th April 2014

The Group Training Certificate programme provides the knowledge and skills to design and deliver effective interactive theoretical training sessions to groups of people. Participants will learn how to plan training that meets their objectives, how to identify appropriate methods of training that will maximize their group’s understanding and how to develop skills to help engage all group members. On successful completion participants will be awarded Stonebow’s nationally recognized Group Training Certificate ( GTC)
Who is it for?

It is specifically designed for managers, heads of department, supervisors, team leaders,trainers and staff who need to either understand the basics of training practice, or want to refine / update their training techniques. Those who have never delivered training before will find it an ideal basis for their future training activities. Trainers or potential trainers from any discipline will benefit from the programme as the qualification concentrates on the training process rather than the content.

By the end of the course participants will be able to:
- Identify two training activities and write objectives that are appropriate for interactive group training sessions
- Plan accurate training sessions with support materials that reflect real practice and include appropriate information
- Carry out two interactive training sessions at a pace and sequence that maximize learning

This course is informal and highly participative with active discussion, exchange of ideas, exercises, group work and two practical sessions in which participants can practice their new skills.
