What Clients Say

★★★★★ "I undertook the one day Train the Trainer Essentials Course. Ralph was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. Before the course, I had some slight reservations about how thorough the course would be, being one day only, but I can honestly say I came away feeling better equipped to train. I've also asked my employer if I can attend the extended second day. The course was delivered via Zoom. I wasn't sure if this would be as engaging as an in-person course, but any fears were soon allayed. Ralph pushed us, sufficiently for us to broaden our skills, but not too much that it became daunting. It's clear that Target Training care about their candidates. I never felt that I was a mere tick in the box, and look forward to attending further courses in the future. Highly recommended." David Craigie.

★★★★★ "I attended the Train the Trainer online course hosted by Target Training Associates. The organisation of the overall training session was fantastic and materials received well in advance of the actual training date. The delivery, content and focus of training material was fantastic, interactive and extremely engaging. I hope to continue to develop my training delivery skills and put the learning of the Train the Trainer course to good use." Heleena Chauhan.

"Are courses accredited?"

ILM Logo

Courses such as PTT Train the Trainer, Advanced PTT Train the Trainer, Master Trainer, Coaching Skills for Managers/Trainers, Master Coach, Presentation Skills, Management Development Programmes and Essential Skills for Managers are all accredited by the ILM. Based in the UK as part of the City & Guilds group they are a leading provider of specialist qualifications.  ILM is also recognised globally and many of their products and services are delivered and enjoyed by customers in many countries around the world.

"Do I have to complete a portfolio or pass an exam to complete the course?"

On courses that are accredited, they are performance assessed.  No portfolios or additional tests or statements are required.  Whilst on the training delegates are shown the skills and techniques required and they are then given opportunities to practise and develop.  During this time our trainers offer support and guidance accordingly. A formal assessment is then conducted at the end of the course and one to one feedback is given focusing on what was done well and areas for development.

"What is the difference between Coaching and Training?"

There are often mistakes regarding understanding the differences between the two methods.

Coaching - A conversation between the coach and the coachee whereby the coachee achieves a higher level and understanding of awareness and self-awareness, while the coach provides a safe environment and structure for that outcome to occur.

Training -  Training is teaching or developing in oneself or others, any skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies. Training has specific goals of improving one's capability, capacity, productivity and performance and to maintain, upgrade and update skills throughout working life.

To train, you need to know the skill, to coach you don’t because it is more about the person.

How can these be miss-understood? I know the English language does not help with a ski instructor and a tennis coach, but coaching and training are different. I see the cross between coach and mentor is the same; the key is to understand the boundaries between them all.
