This Training and Development Award is the nationally approved Level 6 QQI professional qualification for new and experienced trainers. The twelve week programme provides participants with the tools to identify training needs and design, plan, deliver and evaluate quality and engaging training. The course is aimed at qualified practitioners who wish to pursue a career as a trainer.

The course is aimed at individuals already involved in designing and delivering training as part of a project; and team leaders, supervisors and managers required to plan, delivery and/or evaluate training in their workplace. The certificate will provide you with the knowledge and skills to deliver good quality training. During it you will:

◾Develop and enhance your skills as a trainer

◾Provide you with the ‘Essential Trainer Toolkit’ that will enable you to confidently identify training needs and design, plan, deliver and evaluate quality and engaging training interventions

◾Help you understand your role with regard to best practice in adult education, group work, legislation, equality and diversity issues

◾Provide you with a nationally recognised accredited training qualification.

The course uses a blended approach which combines online learning, virtual tutorials and face to face workshops.

Our online learning materials are designed to accommodate the pressures that come with trying to balance work, life and learning. They make it possible to build study time around your work schedule. These are accessible through our learning centre which provides a platform for you to study, collaborate and communicate with your fellow learners. Regular online tutorials will expand your knowledge of the topic and answer any questions you have as you study.

Each workshop focuses on extending your understanding of the subject matter and helping you apply it in your working practice. The workshops will be led by a subject matter expert who also has extensive experience in providing coaching/training to people working in the human services and non-profit sector. Discussion, collaboration and the sharing of experiences are actively encouraged.
