Trainers in the humanitarian and development sectors ensure staff are equipped with the skills and knowledge required to deliver successful programmes. By passing on their wisdom and experiences through effective training techniques, humanitarians can extend the impact of their work to future projects and generations.

This intensive course combines theory and practice to help participants understand the fundamentals of training and facilitation and develop competencies to increase their efficiency as trainers.

Registration is from 08:45, with the course starting at 09:00 and concluding by 17:00. The day is broken up into 4 sessions, separated by a lunch break and coffee/ tea breaks in the morning and afternoon. 

Participants will be actively encouraged to participate in classroom discussions and group work. The trainer will draw on both theoretical and practical knowledge in order to make the experience and learning applicable to the realities of the humanitarian sector. 



This course presumes no previous NGO sector knowledge or experience, but the focus of the curriculum is training within an NGO scenario. Training of Trainers is aimed at humanitarian and development personnel and consultants who are involved in planning or delivering training. 

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; experienced trainers who are looking for a refresher or want to add the latest teaching methodologies and practices to their toolbox.
