Course Detail

Award in Education 4 Day Programme

Course overview

This programme has been developed for staff with a responsibility for training others in their workplace. Designed to support organisations with an in-house training provision as well as those working as independent trainers, this introductory teaching qualification will transform learners into qualified trainers.

Having a qualified trainer within an organisation will support the ongoing training needs across the business as well as continuous improvements in practice. Trainers will be able to deliver sessions to groups of staff as well as work one-to-one with individuals where their practice may need developing.

Having a quality internal training provision supports organisations to access the training they need more quickly, at a time that’s right for them and in a more cost efficient way than accessing an external provider.

Within this programme, learners will develop the skills required to understand how training demands across your business often change due to health and care needs of the individuals you support. As a business you need to ensure that the skills of your staff teams are kept up to date with these changes and having an in house training provision can be reactive to those changes in a cost effective way.

It is therefore essential that your trainers truly understand the importance of using a whole range of delivery methods, including real case studies from within your own organisation. This will ensure that practice is developed not only in line with occupational standards, but also considering the specific needs of all individuals your staff support, which will lead to improved well-being and quality of life.

An in-house trainer will also be available to support families, friends and unpaid carers to ensure they are offered necessary advice and training on how to work with individuals and effectively communicate with them.
