TSW’s train the trainer course provides the knowledge and skills needed to deliver professional training courses for adults.

This Train the Trainer course is designed as a ‘fundamentals’ workshop for those who require the skills to train adults, whether full-time or as part of their job role. It provides basic training techniques and encourages a dynamic and flexible approach to training delivery.

When training the trainer, we provide instruction, coaching, and feedback to develop high-impact professional trainers who can engage their learners, increase learning retention and bridge the gap between learning and application.
