The following Practice Management guidance note Produced in partnership with Beth Pipe of Bellis Learning Solutions Ltd provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
This Practice Note covers how to prepare and deliver a training course or presentation. It contains information about:
the difference between a training course and a training presentation
clarifying the purpose of the presentation or course
pitching your presentation or course correctly
pre course or presentation information
avoiding death by PowerPoint
engaging with delegates
dealing with tricky delegates
getting and using feedback
Though on the surface it may appear to be little more than semantics, there is in fact a difference between a training course and a training presentation.
A training presentation is essentially a one-way communication; a message that needs to be imparted with little audience participation. A training course is a two-way activity, where a trainer will actively engage with delegates, and learning will occur through relevant activities and discussions as well as through the presentation itself.
There is some overlap between the two formats in the early stages and this is reflected in this practice note.
Any learning event needs to have a clear purpose. Before beginning to write a training presentation or course you need to consider:
what is its aim
the needs of the audience
the best way to get your message across
