It has been said that “good teachers produce good students.” It is equally true that good trainers produce good development workers. By passing on their wisdom and experiences through effective training techniques, humanitarian and development workers can extend the impact of their work to future projects and generations. Trainers in this sector ensure staff and volunteers are equipped with the skills and knowledge they require to deliver successful programmes.

This five-day CPD Accredited course combines theory and practice to help you understand the fundamentals of training and facilitation and develop competencies to aid you in becoming a more effective trainer.

You will learn from experience, observation, and feedback in highly participatory activities. The skills you learn during the course will immediately be put into practice and developed as you plan and deliver your own short training sessions.

What does the course cover?

  • Adult learning and the training cycle
  • Learning needs analysis
  • Writing training objectives
  • Identifying key learning points
  • Humanitarian and development context for trainers
  • Training and facilitation techniques
  • Providing feedback and coaching

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • State the principles of adult learning and apply them to designing and running a training course
  • List the stages of the training cycle and the key activities that need to happen at each stage
  • Adopt a learner-centred approach when designing and delivering training
  • Write aims and objectives for training sessions and courses
  • Demonstrate a range of training skills and techniques
  • Describe the role of a facilitator and ways to work creatively and constructively with groups
  • Select appropriate activities, materials and resources for training people in a variety of contexts
  • Devise tools and techniques for assessing training needs and for evaluating training


Who should attend?

This course presumes no previous sector knowledge or experience, but the focus of the curriculum is training within a humanitarian scenario. Training of Trainers is aimed at humanitarian and development personnel and consultants who are involved in planning or delivering training to staff or communities. Participants will likely fall into one of three groups: people who have never trained before but foresee that they will in the future; those who have previously done some training but are seeking to enhance their lessons through more structure and a better understanding of training methodologies to enhance their lessons; experienced trainers who are looking for a refresher course or add the latest teaching methodologies and practices to their toolbox.
