Train the IT Trainer Essentials
Whether you’re a complete beginner to training, or simply looking for more formal support, this two-day course will give you your first opportunity to learn what makes training great. In line with the principles being taught, the course will itself be learner focused. You will get the benefit of Happy’s extensive knowledge of training and will also learn from their own experiences.
We know that you won’t be running classroom training at the moment, so you may be interested in our remote learning workshops. The Facilitating Interactive Workshops and Training with GoTo and Zoom sessions will guide you through the features in GoToTraining and Zoom to allow you to facilitate interactive learning sessions.

Due to current government guidelines we have temporarily closed our training centre in London. All of our staff are now working remotely, and all classroom training has been postponed until 29th May.
We have developed a fantastic range of interactive webinars delivered by our experienced facilitators, Live Online Learning. We understand that for many people this will be the first time that they have worked from home and so we have developed short 1.5-2 hour sessions to help you adjust to this new situation. You can see details of our IT Skills live online learning sessions here and our Personal Development sessions here – or we can adapt any of our classroom training into webinar format for you.
For the latest government guidance, please visit the gov.uk website.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise all clients if the situation changes.
If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to arrange some online training, our friendly team are available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. You can leave a message on 020 7375 7300 or email us at email@example.com.
