  1. Train the online trainer

    Train the online trainer
    The pace of training delivery being delivered online is staggering. Over 30 per cent of higher education students in the U.S. are taking at least one distance course online. This is likely to increase significantly over the next two years. Many trainers, executives and managers find themselves increasingly confronted with the demand for online training. The delivery can be a very...
  2. Reflection in your work role

    Reflection in your work role
    I recently did a journal for teachers to reflect on their work role. How many of us do this, reflect on our work? I wrote the journal looking at reflection from a teacher's role, what their experiences of the day were and how could they change areas for the next time. That made me think that people still have not...
  3. Effective virtual and online delivery

    Effective virtual and online delivery
    Over the last few months, we have had to learn to deliver online training better.  Online training delivery uses modern technology and the ability to deliver training using information technology can reinforce key messages and therefore make it a great way of getting your message across.   Unfortunately, poor use of information technology can add to the confusion and if we...
  4. One to One online - benefits

    One to One online - benefits
    We are having a great deal of interest in our ability to adapt our training courses. Since the start of lockdown, we have been delivering online training, and we have learnt how to provide it correctly. It requires a particular skill set, and I am personally very proud of how we have adapted to accommodate. One thing that has particularly...
  5. Presentation skills

    Presentation skills
    Public speaking is the most common of all phobias 75% of people suffer from speech anxiety, that is 3 out of 4 individuals suffer from anxiety when public speaking. I remember reading an article that said that some people fear public speaking over death! This morning I delivered an online session on presentations and gave the delegates some keys skills...
  6. Building rapport in your training sessions is like climbing a hill

    Building rapport in your training sessions is like climbing a hill
    A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Colin and Jean in a very snowy Aberdeen.  Although they had never met, it turned that they shared an off-shore connection with common colleagues and friends, so rapport built quickly with them once the ‘ice’ had been broken.  Getting rapport built quickly in your room is so...
  7. One of the most common mistakes trainers make

    One of the most common mistakes trainers make
    Some of us are very lucky as trainers to have had fantastic training support and continued professional development, but many aren’t so fortunate.  One of the most common statements I come across when delivering PTT Train the Trainer courses is how many people are given a task by their managers to train something because “We need training on that”.  Then...
  8. e-learning - does it have to be that way?

    e-learning - does it have to be that way?
    We are continually looking at ways to deliver effective training and to improve our provision and as a Train the Trainer provider I believe our practice should be of the highest quality.   Like many providers, we have had to adapt our training delivery since lockdown. I have done lots of research into courses, looking at what’s available currently online...
  9. The 4 must do's when using questioning in training

    The 4 must do's when using questioning in training
    On our PTT Train the Trainer courses we cover the five pillars of assessment, one of which is ‘Questioning”.  Questioning is a must in any form of training delivery, particularly if you want to engage. However, one of the most common problems I see is when questioning becomes a question for the sake of a question, more commonly it’s a...
  10. Are you stuck in life?

    Are you stuck in life?
    Do you find yourself stuck in life? One of those questions you sometimes have to ask yourself as you face the day to day routine with no change. Some of us like this, the majority don’t, so why is this? Ask yourself the question what would you like to be different? Look at three areas in your life, career, life...
