Testimonials from existing Training Providers who have attended 'Train the Trainer' 

'Even after delivering training courses for over 15 years I found the Trainer the trainer course very useful.

During the course the tutor demonstrated a range of teaching methods and encouraged the participants to try them out too. We came up with new ideas of how to make our own courses more interactive to ensure that participants retain more of the information imparted during a course, particularly for less exciting topics such as legislation. 

The microteach session on ‘Nibbled nut ID’ that I trialled on the course is now a popular part of my dormouse course.  

I would thoroughly recommend the course to anyone teaching a training course'

'I felt the Train the Trainer course was very helpful for a new trainer like myself; it helped me fine tune my course material'
