Learn how to consider training needs and create effective learning aims
This CPD accredited, five-week course provides an in-depth insight into how people learn, how to consider individual, group or organisational training needs and how to create effective learning aims and objectives.
You’ll be given all the practical tools and expert advice you need in order to plan and design first-rate courses.
Develop a knowledge of learning theories
You’ll get to grips with the different ways in which people learn, and will put a range of different learning theories into practice to meet learner, group and organisational needs.
You’ll create lesson plans, different programmes of work and training materials to promote inclusion and maximise learning to those students that you will be teaching.
Design inclusive learning programmes with SMART learning objectives
You’ll decipher how to best initiate learning programmes so they fit the SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound) learning objectives, and will identify different methods of assessment that can be incorporated into course design.
These can include oral presentations, group work and objective tests.
