Training tools

A range of tools that take you through each stage of developing training courses.

Topics include:
  • Training needs analysis
  • Planning and designing training
  • Delivering training
  • Learning evaluation
  • Learning transfer
  • Training challenges
  • Pre-course activities
  • Icebreakers
  • Course closers
  • Live online learning

Each of the tools within these topics contains:
  • an overview, which describes the coverage of the tool, who the tool is for, and what it aims to help you achieve
  • guidance notes, which take you step by step through the process, provide you with checklists for you to tick off as you progress through, and highlight points to consider when creating your own training courses
  • downloadable support material, either for you as the facilitator or course designer to work through, or for you to customise and use with delegates in a training situation.
