Course Overview

The City & Guilds Introduction to Trainer Skills is designed to provide the participants with a sound introduction to the concepts of a systematic approach to training. It is comprehensive in content at this level, building the skills, knowledge and abilities of a participant that are required to be an effective trainer.

On completion of the Introduction to Trainer Skills, learners will equip themselves and their employer with a member of staff who is able to plan, deliver and evaluate effective training, no matter what the content of the subject they are delivering.

The course is based on the training cycle, covering three main areas:

1. planning (including session planning)
2. delivery (participants will deliver a 10-15 minute ‘session’ that they have planned)
3. evaluation (self, peer group and course evaluation).

This is an introductory qualification and is ideal for those with no previous formal training in the models and techniques for training and developing colleagues in the workplace.

These qualifications will help you in your day-to-day role but could also provide a first step towards training and development roles such as:

• Learning Mentor
• Internal/External Verifier
• Training Officer/Manager

The duration of the course is 12 hrs (2 days x 6 hrs ) and ideally the days are usually a week apart to allow candidates to prepare their sessions

Start dates – Courses run throughout the year and can also accommodate bespoke delivery options to businesses who have multiple numbers requiring training.
