Design A Session Plan

A Session Plan is the most crucial thing to design for any live training event. Yet many facilitators fail to create one, feeling it's unnecessary. But putting in the work up front to design a proper session plan, reaps very many benefits later in the design AND delivery process.

Well-Crafted Session Plans are Key to Effective Training Design

In the ADDIE Model of Training Design (Analysis, Design. Develop, Implement, Evaluate) writing a session plan is a fundamental element of the DEVELOP phase (or detailed design)    

If you find that:

You never seem to run the same course twice (even though you should)
 Your prep time takes too long  

Other people struggle to deliver the courses you write as they should  
You need to convince stakeholders that your course covers what it should  
You need to prove to an awarding body that your course meets their criteria

Then look no further, because this short course on designing session plans is exactly what you need!

Within the course I explain what a session plan is, why it's so important, and lift the bonnet on my own process so you can take a similar approach.    By the end of the course you will have a step-by-step process to create effective training session plans that maximise learning potential, AND save you time.

What's Included?


Learn the ins and outs of creating a training session plan from scratch. You'll discover why a well-crafted session plan is crucial for effective training delivery and how it can help you achieve your learning objectives. Plus I'll take you behind the scenes of my own design process and show you the steps I take to create engaging and effective session plans.


Stay organised and focused throughout your design process with downloadable checklists. Not only will they save you time they will give you the confidence to know that you have covered all the necessary components of a successful plan.


Whether you're a seasoned trainer or just starting out, templates provide a pre-designed framework that you can use to structure your session plan, making it easier to focus on content rather than formatting. Save yourself time and effort by eliminating the need to create from scratch, AND ensure that while your plans are customised to fit specific requirements they remain consistent.

Create Effective And Engaging Session Plans

The course is video led, and is supplemented with short exercises and downloads. You will need to set aside about 45 minutes in total to complete the course - but you don't need to do it all at once. You can dip in and out as you please.

The course assumes that you have done your initial consultation/analysis AND scoped out your content at a top line, and have an outline to work from. The Plan an Effective Training Session Course takes you through this process, so you may find it useful to complete that first - though it isn't essential. The Design an Effective Workshop explores all other factors to take into account when designing a workshop and includes a section on creating your session plan, so if you have done this course already, you probably don't need to do this one.
