The aim of the course is to explore, and to assess the application of, the key interpersonal and practical elements that underpin effective technical training.

This course is composed of 3 parts:

1) Pre-event activity - designed to provide a foundation for drawings on participants’ prior knowledge and ideas; to prepare participants’; also to give the TtTT trainer useful supporting information.   

2) The event

a. Day 1 (full-day) - divided into coherent sessions, including interactive plenary and group exercises that builds on the interpersonal skills and the practical elements of technical training.

b. Day 2 (half-day) - final preparation and a short 10 minute presentation by participants, followed by trainer feedback

3) Post event learning in the workplace - opportunity to build on the feedback and practice in the workplace by developing a workbook, to help build on the contact time learning.
