Training of trainers

Effective skills development is dependent on good trainers who understand pedagogy and a user-centred approach to training and learning. As such, we support the development of training skills in their own right as well as mastery of the technical content.

We also believe that wherever possible those trainers should be local and should be working within organisations that are committed to supporting their activities. 

In some cases, the investment in building generic training skills is substantial, involving multiple face-to-face training events, pre and post training tasks, all run over many months.  In others, a body of skilled trainers can be created with more condensed, short term interventions.
