Training the Trainers

A blended learning course for any staff providing training for peer groups – as trainers for AGCAS or running events internally for careers service colleagues, academics or other staff groups.

This three-day residential with one day e-learning is part of the optional Training and Coaching module within the AGCAS/Warwick PG Diploma/MA in CEIGHE, but is open to all. The focus is not on teaching student groups – for this, please consider our Group Work course.

By the end of the course, participants should be able to:

  • analyse and implement an appropriate training design model
  • dentify the different training roles with AGCAS including that of trainer on the AGCAS/Warwick qualification courses
  • describe theories of learning and group dynamics
  • demonstrate a range of skills to facilitate the delivery of training courses
  • provide and receive feedback and recognise its role in the assessment process
  • demonstrate coaching and mentoring skills
  • develop a personal action plan.

Don't just take our word for it, here are some comments from previous participants:

"It gave me an opportunity to review what I do and how I do it and to introduce some new ideas and techniques."

"I have learnt new skills that I can put into practice immediately, working with staff and students. I can apply the skills to many aspects of my work from training to project work and it has enhanced many skills."

"It gave me some techniques and theories to use when planning my own training delivery, and gave me confidence in my own ability to present/train."

The cost covers a three-day residential course which includes training sessions, refreshments, meals and en-suite accommodation for two nights. If you would like to stay at Warwick on the night before, please contact Warwick Conferences on 024 7652 3222 directly.         

This course is delivered by The University of Warwick in collaboration with AGCAS; it is an optional module of the CEIGHE MA/PG Diploma. CEIGHE registrants are supported by materials and resources from both the AGCAS and The University of Warwick’s websites.

It is also open to non-registrants whose course support and materials will be provided solely by AGCAS.
