    What our participants say about this programme?

    I am thrilled that I participated in this course. I didn’t know what to expect initially especially with it being taught over Zoom! Part of my role sees me train clients as well as my team members. Prior to taking part in the course I compiled a slide deck, presented to my clients and told them I was available for Q&A!


    I am now equipped with the tools required to plan, deliver and evaluate a training session. This course was extremely in-depth and included sessions on the different types of learners and teaching styles. I enjoyed learning about the various theories too! The trainer  was tremendous. Their skills and personality added to the value of this course.  The trainer kept us very much engaged.


     I would highly recommend this course and am so very glad I signed up! I will never go back to my old way of training!


    This is a truly excellent course which I found extremely interesting and invaluable.


    For a short course you will learn so much from a Company, Trainer and Trainee perspective. Great insights are provided in how to train each type of learner and how to really get value from training and ensuring your trainees are getting and experiencing value. Our course trainer  was excellent, highly interactive with a wealth of knowledge and experience, no stone left unturned.


    I can now structure a course to make training fun, fruitful and rewarding.
