Training and Development

Train the Trainer

Special Purpose Award in Training and Development encompasses 6N3325 Training Needs Identification & Design and 6N3326 Training Delivery and Evaluation (2 Modules)

The Train the Trainer model is recognised as an industry standard for professionals who train others in the workplace or in a range of further education settings.  The skillset needed to deliver effective training interventions is complex and diverse requiring trainers to think critically, interact positively with clients and manage complex group dynamics. The learning and development landscape is constantly evolving, and trainers need to upskill and reskill to maintain their edge in competitive markets.

Our Train the Trainer (Special Purpose Award in Training and Development,6S3372)  ensures that the knowledge and skills gained on our programme conforms to the most up to date developments in training in Ireland.
