Training the Trainee
Training is defined as teaching or developing skills to improve expertise in a particular area.
Training the trainee typically involves the trainer, who acts like a coach and a mentor, and the trainee – also referred to as the apprentice. The terms can apply to the same person when self-directed learning takes place.
There are several advantages to an apprenticeship. These include earning a salary while learning and attracting potential full-time employees. However, the development cost is high, and many a time, women and minorities have limited access to top apprenticeships.
On the other hand, self-directed learning has a good number of benefits, such as learning at your pace and developing self-discipline. On the downside, the development period is longer, and the trainees may find it challenging to stay motivated.
This class is designed for trainers who would like to improve their teaching and developing skills. It is important for trainers to remain well-informed of the industry they are in and how they can best deliver their knowledge to the students.
During the module, our students will:
- Recognise learning stages.
- Pinpoint the obstacles and non-obstacles to learning.
- Participate in discussions about learning techniques.
- Utilise materials to facilitate their teaching.
- Learn how to keep their teaching relevant and interesting.
