Contemporary trainers need to facilitate effectively in order to deliver a successful training to meet the course objective. This will require a trainer to possess a bag of facilitation techniques and tools in order to effectively engage the learners within a conductive learning environment.

Often, training fails due to a myriad of reasons. These include lack of a structured approach to manage a training event, failure to adopt appropriate techniques to engage and optimize participation from the learners, trainers not knowing how to handle challenging characters also known as learning robbers, and poor design and handling of activities to meet the objectives of the class.

Training Facilitation serves to address and confront these challenges so that trainers can be more effective, and training events can be more fruitfully and efficiently carried out to meet their objectives.

This 2-day course imparts the comprehensive know-how of Training Facilitation used at the different phases of training, namely pre-class, start of class, during the class, end of class, and post-class. Participants will have the opportunity to put into practice the techniques they learnt in class. Participants can expect to walk away more confident and competent in managing and facilitating training or learning events.
