Training of Trainers

Theme: To Build A Pool of Competent Instructors Who Can Then Teach the Material to Other People.
Course Duration: 3 Days

Program Overview:

The Training of Trainers (ToT) program is intended to engage master trainers
in coaching new trainers that are less experienced with a particular topic or skill, or with training overall.

A ToT workshop can build a pool of competent instructors who can then teach the material to other people. Instead of having just one trainer who teaches a course for a long time, there are multiple trainers teaching the same course at the same time in the ToT model. This means a new participant typically gets to watch an experienced trainer
teach, complete the exercises, and then practice teaching segments to other participants.


This works both for professional Development courses as well as Best practice programs in various fields. The content is designed to build the knowledge and skill base of peer educators to enhance the overall knowledge base within the organisation.


Long team this has the enormous benefit of saving the organisation resources (both time and finance) which would be spent in outsourcing of staff training.

The exercises that follow might also be used in refresher training. Once trained, trainers need continuing support, including further training. This provides a way to help trainers stay aware of new material and sharpen their training skills.

Many topics and techniques described in this curriculum are accompanied by training notes. These provide information to help trainers understand why a topic is important or how specific techniques will contribute to the objectives of the peer education training of trainers.
