So what exactly is included in the training course materials packages you might be wondering? When you buy them online, they are packaged together as a zipped downloadable file that you receive access to once you have made your purchase (see the FAQ page for an explanation of how to download your package after payment). Each kit includes the following
1. PowerPoint Slides
This is an example from our Delegation Skills training package.
The number of slides on the PowerPoint will depend on if you are buying a 2-hour, 1/2 day, 1-day or 2-day training package. Typically, the it will range from 20 through to 90 slides.
The PowerPoint slides are fully customizable, and they include guidance notes for tutors on the bottom of each slide. For activities, there are also some notes on how to run the activity online (in case you also need this information)
2. Trainer’s Manual
As the trainer, you will understandably need guidance and a clear understanding of how to run the training day and the trainer’s manual provides full guidance. To give you an idea of the number of pages, for the 1/2-day ‘Delegation Skills’ course it is 38 pages.
3. Participants Workbook
We include a students’ workbook in each package so that the participants can use it during the training. These workbooks are designed so that you can easily print them before the training day and they include useful information for students including a reminder of all they have learned, space for them to write down notes, further resources and so on.
4. Handouts and All Forms You Will Need
Everything you need is included in the packages and that includes:
- Training day course attendance sign-in form so that participants can sign is as they arrive.
- Tutor’s pre-course preparation guidance.
- Feedback form so that you can gather very valuable feedback on how the course went.
- Notes for teaching this course online (just in case you wish to teach it this way). You can, by the way, also read our online teaching guides.
5. Exercises and Activities
The games and activities such as icebreakers and team building games for each course are in the PowerPoint slides and detailed in the teaching notes at the bottom of the slide. The exercises are also detailed in the teacher’s notes handbooks and the participant’s handbook. You might also enjoy these 21 free icebreakers here for online teaching.
In order to ensure that your training flows seamlessly, a number of activities and class exercises are planned and included in this training pack.
6. Certificate of Attendance
Included with each course package is a certificate that you, as the teacher (tutor or trainer), can either complete electronically and email the participants or print and manually complete. So if you wish (or if the participant requests one) you can provide them with a course completion certificate.
