Overview of Professional Development Program

This program is designed for participants who want to develop and refine their training competencies. It is specifically designed for those who have had some "formal" train the trainer participation.

The need for further training could have been precipitated by a variety of factors:

An absence from training activities in recent times.
A new initiative requiring extensive employee or staff training.
Moving into a new field of operation.
A situation requiring a different training approach and style.
Further professional development requirements.
The need for more practical training experience.
The desire to ensure that training skills are current and "leading edge".

Whatever the reason, this program offers the opportunity to practice and refine training skills.

The program involves both pre and post course work. Derek will work with each participant prior to the training. Each participant will prepare a practice training session for presentation on the day. This session will be reviewed by Derek and other participants. The remainder of the day will be spent reviewing key training techniques and strategies. Each participant will have a personal development plan for individual study after the day.

The program involves attendance on one training day. Additional research and training session preparation is required before the training day. This blended learning approach provides additional opportunities for participant knowledge development.

Key content of the program includes:

Current learning and training trends
The training cycle today
The various training roles
Incorporating team development to maximise training effectiveness
Targeting learning at the right level
