Design An Effective Training Workshop

A good training workshop is NOT a jam-packed presentation sandwiched between an ice-breaker and Q&A session. It's an interactive experience that engages participants from beginning to end. But that activity isn't random. It's carefully considered and built into the fabric of the session to maximise learning and engagement.

Create An Engaging Training Event To Maximises Learning And Encourages Application In The Workplace

This course on designing training will help you to create an engaging training event that maximises learning and encourages the application of that learning back in the workplace, whether that training event is face-to-face or virtual. It's not about learning the theory; its a practical course that takes you on a step by step journey to allow you to design your own effective training workshop.

In particular, by completing the course you will be able to:

Provide examples of what makes a training workshop engaging
 Explain Kolb’s Learning Cycle and what this means for training events  
Describe different communication modalities, and when and how these can be reflected in training events  
Explain what accelerated learning is and some of the principles to consider when creating engaging training events  
Describe and USE the MASTER structure to create an engaging training workshop  
Select appropriate training methods to bring learning to life and make it stick  
Decide upon the most relevant delegate materials to create and use to support your event

It's ideal if you have a training workshop to design as you work through the course, so that you can create it as you go. If not, you can learn all the principles so that when you DO need to design a learning event, you know how to do that to maximise impact and effectiveness.

Say goodbye to boring PowerPoint based courses that everyone forgets, and hello to engaging workshops that have a lasting impact.

Take the pressure off yourself by NOT having to create every session in the moment - know that you have a robust plan in advance and take all the stress out of delivery.  

Stop worrying abut whether people will run your training sessions as you want them to, and give them the tools they need to succeed.  

Get your design right, and the rest will follow.

"Your course helped me to understand the different aspects of designing training material and it opened my eyes on things to consider when designing training that I probably wouldn’t have thought of before I took your course. I now feel more confident that I'm able to design and deliver quality material at a high standard"

Everything You Need To Know To
Design An Effective Training Workshop
For Just

"To grow my business, I needed to trust other people to run my courses the way I wanted them to. This course has helped me to design in such a way that I can hand things over with confidence. It also has helped to shorten my own prep time, which is an added bonus".



You should set aside around 3 hours to complete the course, which includes watching the video tutorials and completing the short exercises and reflections questions. You don’t need to complete it all in one go, and you can revisit lessons as often as you like. 

The course is perfect for you if you want to design a training session for other people to run OR if you want to create a robust session plan and professional delegate materials that can be used over and over. 

No. However, if you have never designed or delivered training before, I recommend that you complete the Plan an Effective Training Session course first. 

No – the course is for you to use as you see fit. It’s not about passing a test, it’s about discovering how to design quality training quickly. However, I do recommend that you have a course in mind to work on throughout the course to allow you to apply learning straight away and get work done as you learn. 

No – because there is no test, there’s no accreditation. 

The principles are applicable to live (in person), live (virtual) AND e-learning courses. However, it is delivered assuming that you’re going to be delivering a live event. It’s a good foundation for e-learning design but it won’t cover any technical things that you may need to consider if this is what you’ll be designing. 

I’m afraid not. Please watch the three first lessons to make sure it’s going to be right for you, and contact me if you have any further questions. 

The course is a self-directed course, but you can ask any questions you have in the Training Designer’s Club Facebook group. Or become a VIP and get easy access to me and other L&D professionals when you need it.
