Train the Trainer - Day One - AM

Training others is a high level communication skill.

The job of the trainer is to help the learners achieve the three levels of learning.

Structure your message

Three levels of learning - As a trainer you have to be successful in all three areas. You need to make your message:

  1. Relevant – relevance gives the team motivation to pay attention
  2. Memorable- memorable makes the message stick in the mind
  3. Understandable- makes the material usable

How to make your message understandable:

  1. Structure your message like a tree
  2. Define all your key terms
  3. Make the links between ideas obvious

How to make your presentations interesting

  1. Illustrate each key point with examples – give concrete examples from real life
  2. Involve your audience – If you don’t involve them they will drift off
  3. Give the audience things to do to work the material

How to make your presentation relevant

  1. Link the information to your listener's context
  2. Answer their question - so what?

Three trainer skills:

  1. Verbal clarity - specific notes and examples- Your language is crucial to your success.
  2. Logical structure - order your material- Your training material needs to be sorted into sets.
  3. Proper pacing - adjust the style: slow down and give sufficient time for your message to be assimilated. Pacing must be perfect.

Train the Trainer - Day One - PM

The Magnificent Seven Training Techniques

1. Preview and review: Let people know the structure before they get into the details.

2. Mental association: Memory is often the art of associating what you need to remember to what you already know.

3. Visual support: Most people are visual animals and need to “see it” to “understand it”.

4. Physical involvement: Some people are active learners and need to get to grips with it, in order to understand it.

5. Chunking-down: Everything can be seen as an elaboration of a simpler form. Sometimes it is useful to show the simpler form before you show them the elaboration.

6. Summing-up: Periodically sum up what you have covered so far.

7. Repetition: They must hear it more than once. Repetition is the mother of learning.

Distinguish between Understanding v memory v application:

They need to take all three steps. They must understand and learn and use your material.

Understanding - The act of grasping the meaning

Learn - Storing desired information in the memory

Application - Using the new information in 'real life'

Put this theory into your practice:

Select a sample of your material
Demonstrate example
Feedback from colleagues

Summary and action plan

Some really useful tools and thought-provoking exercises. The training workbook will be great to use for reflection. Great to know about the website and free website tools. The presentation had a good balance of instructive and interactive. Excellent time keeping – clearly very experienced.

The Course Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!

After the course, how can you keep the training-momentum going?

We understand that it is important to keep the momentum of the training going, in the weeks after the course. The ideas and methods that you learnt during the course need to be implemented, not just for the two weeks after the course, but for all time!

In order to make that happen, we will give you continued, on-going support after the training course has finished.
