Developing training courses

You have the task of setting up a training course. But how do you go about it? Participants are obviously only satisfied when they leave a training course with a new understanding, new insights and new skills: something they can use in their own practice or when taking an exam. Therefore, the chosen topics and exercises have to be relevant and the participants have to see the usefulness of the theory explained and the exercises offered. In addition, it is important that participants can keep an overview of the programme components and that the entire training course is easy to follow. The success of a training course is in your own hands. And with a correct training plan, half the work is already done!

Our two-day Training Development Course covers all the phases that need to be gone through when developing a training course. You learn to select the right information and exercises. You will be given tools to structure a course and to ensure a logical structure and clear connections for the participant. You will learn to put the idea for a programme clearly into a script; the trainer's guide that should enable every trainer to give the same training. There will be a discussion about what you need to take into account when making a script, such as the time planning for each part of the programme, the preconditions, unforeseen matters and the resources needed to be able to give the training.

Topics

During the training the following topics, among others, will be discussed:

  • Preparation when developing a training course
  • Learning needs as a basis for the curriculum
  • Experiential learning: the Kolb learning circle
  • Success factors for a training course in a row
  • Starting the learning process: sequence and relevance
  • Learning Objectives Survey
  • Writing promotional texts for a training course
  • Creating overview and structure
  • Providing repetition and building bridges
  • Planning and time management
  • Back-up programme and emergency exercises
  • Selecting information
  • Different types of exercise forms
  • Energy level and planning
  • Introduce variety into training
  • Writing a script

Results

After the training:

  • you can create a stimulating workout;
  • you know how to translate the material to your training programme in a didactically responsible way, and
  • You have knowledge of different working methods.

Teaching methodology

In the training we alternate between concrete experience, experimenting with behaviour and techniques, reflecting and exploring theory. This way, the training programme fits in well with all types of participants. There is a lot of action in the training, so you actually experience the effect of new behaviour. This enables the recognition of success. We also emphasise that everyone is responsible for his or her own growth process and must take ownership of it. In our training we invite you to continuously reflect and make connections with practice. Our aim is to increase your insight and to let you make the translation yourself. This will increase the chance of real behavioural change.

The course description above gives you a good indication of what the training will look like.

In individual intake interviews prior to the training, the learning goals of the participants are inventoried. The definitive programme of the training course is determined on this basis.

I. Latupeirissa, Kemira Rotterdam - Developing training courses

"I received a private training session that was completely tailored to my needs. Together, we developed a training programme at the level of the target group it is intended for. By working on it together and hearing ideas, I also got ideas and insight on how I want it. In particular, it was important to ask questions about the result to be achieved, to gauge the mood of the participants at the start and to pay attention to any resistance they might have. I also need to estimate the time correctly for each part and have the core question/exercise clear, and finally have the participants finish with a good result." - Rating: 8.0
