Training the Trainers

Published by Paul Kiddell


A North East based training company are winning accolades for their training course that aims to teach individuals who train others effective skills and techniques.

Ralph Moody from Target Training has been delivering the course for several years and his inspiration was being involved training delivery that was delivered by unqualified and unmotivated staff.  He designed the Professional Trainer Techniques (PTT) course based on the needs of individuals who deliver training on the workface.  The PTT course was developed to meet the needs of trainers in providing the skills to be able to structure and deliver training while engaging learners to want to get involved and learn. “I’m still amazed that even today over 80% of workplace training is delivered by individuals who have never been on a training course on how to deliver training” he said at a client event recently “Anyone that delivers training to staff needs to know the essential skills of asking questions and engaging learners and the only way you can learn this is by being taught and then applying those lessons in a practical training environment and that is what we do on the PTT”

Over 100 individuals have successfully completed the PTT course and the results are very impressive.  “We have a wide range of clients on our training sessions, from one man bands who wish to get involved in the world of training through to corporate trainers who have requested to attend wither as a job description need or as part of their Continuous Professional Development” Ralph said. 

The results are plain to see and clients who have completed the course give the company nothing but positive comments.  Louise Thompson, Commercial Director at Pin Point Recruitment had nothing but praise for the course “Training was fantastic, Ralph was a really effective trainer and what I thought was impossible on day 1, was not long enough on day 2, I thoroughly enjoyed the content and pace of the training have definitely learnt new skills, which I am now putting into practice”

With courses being offered around the UK it looks like lots more people are going to have the opportunity to learn these skills too.   You can find out more about the PTT course via Targets website at
