4 Pillars of Training Design

Eva McCann · 06/07/2021

This time with Sheridan Webb we will be speaking about getting the foundation right when designing training.

What’s that about:
• Stop over-complicating training! Focus on the four pillars of training design to get it right every time.
• What do you do when you can’t rely on your instincts and facilitation skills when planning training?
• Design training that delivers maximum impact in minimum time
• The latest software package or app won’t design great training for you. Only YOU can do that. Learn how in this session.
• Make training design easy by following a simple process
• Ever been disappointed by a training session that was all sizzle and no substance? Make sure your sessions engage AND educate.

Objectives:
• Explain why they may be making training design harder for themselves than it should be
• Follow a process to design an effective training session in the shortest time possible
• Use 4 pillars to guide training design and ensure its success
• Maximise engagement in the simplest way possible

We’ll be looking at:
• What training design is and isn’t.
• Common mistakes that people make.
• A simple but robust process to design effective training of all kinds – Virtual, F2F or online
• For pillars that underline ALL great training sessions.
