Trainer, Coach and Mentor Training

In today's organisations, many people find themselves training, coaching, mentoring or teaching others even if it's not their 'real' job. We help people develop the skills to do the trainer, coach, mentor, teacher or buddy part of their role with skill and confidence. These skills are at the heart of everything we do and we love nothing more than passing them on.

We're experienced in helping:
» professional trainers develop and refine the training skills they need day to day
» workplace experts develop the ability to pass their skills and knowledge on to others
» managers develop their ability to coach
» mentors and mentees understand and develop into their roles.

All our programmes are participative and tailored to meet organisational and participants needs. We can deliver anything from a two hour taster workshop to a six month modular development programme. Where appropriate we make use of professional role-players to provide challenging, hi-fidelity skills practice with personal feedback; peer-coaching to create live practice opportunities; and tailored practice scenarios to increase the realism of skills practice. This grounds the learning in practical experience, accelerates skills acquisition and enhances skills transfer. It also makes for a very participative, interesting and enjoyable learning experience.
