City & Guilds 7300 - 2 Days


About The Award

The Introduction to Trainer Skills is an intensive, two-day course, which provides the participants with a sound introduction to the concepts of a systematic approach to training. On completion of the Introduction to Trainer Skills, candidates will be equipped to plan, deliver and evaluate effective training, in their particular area of knowledge and expertise.


The course is based on the training cycle, covering three main areas:

  1. planning (including session planning)
  2. delivery (participants will deliver a 10 minute 'session' that they have planned)
  3. evaluation (self, peer group and course evaluation


Programme Delivery & Assessment

This qualification will be delivered as an intensive two day course by a tutor following the 7300 Introduction to Training syllabus and materials provided by City & Guilds. The knowledge and practical skills gained on the course will be assessed by a multiple choice quiz and an observation of a session designed and delivered by the candidate. Formal feedback will be provided by the candidate’s peer group and the course tutor.


Course Documentation

Training materials will be issued to candidates during the course.
