Are you sometimes bored with apparently irrelevant training courses?


- Is the training message being lost?

- Are staff/learners not taking on-board vital information? Is this dangerous or costly?

- Is some training not really being very effective?


We can show you how to provide training that is relevant to learners that will:


- engage, interest, challenge and empower people to be motivated to take charge of their own learning.


We can demonstrate the usefulness of ‘andragogic’ (student centred) teaching methods – as opposed to ‘pedagogic’ (teacher centred) strategies in a very supportive learning environment.



Why complete the teacher training qualification?


1) To demonstrate that you (or your staff) can teach effectively to recognised standards;

2) To achieve/maintain ‘centre approval’, so you can provide accredited qualifications. (Note that some people and organisations benefit from the course without completing the awarding organisation's assignments, as it can provide a 'step change' in practice').

3) To work within the guidelines that inspection bodies (such as external verifiers and moderators from awarding bodies) may be looking to see in an organisation’s educational remit;

4) We will also show delegates the wide ranging and well proven benefits of using ‘andragogic’ (learner centred) teaching methods. See here for further details; http://www.infed.org/thinkers/et-knowl.htm  and;


OR type 'andragogy' in to a search engine such as Google;

5) Internal quality assurance reasons. To assure the quality (and effectiveness) of the organisation’s training function;

6) More effective teachers/trainers may stimulate greater demand for work, increasing the revenue of the teacher/organisation;

7) To explore the underpinning educational theory, to understand WHY current teaching strategies work and also why some teaching strategies may not work;

8) To enable educators to facilitate even more effective learning in their learners in the longer term, which may be important for compliance, risk, legal and safety reasons;

9) To motivate employees and maintain good employees by adding meaningful training and career progression opportunities and CPD (continuing professional development).
