Many people are expected to teach other staff and colleagues because of the knowledge and skills they have in a particular area. Unfortunately, if you don’t have the very different set of skills necessary to be a good trainer, it can be very difficult to pass on your own expertise.
This course was developed, initially to support doctors, and more recently nurses, practice managers and other health care professionals in developing their skills and confidence as a teacher or trainer. As healthcare teams broaden their horizons there is a requirement for them to change their behaviours and develop skills which enable them to more effectively support and develop those around them. This workshop will help delegates to develop their skills and leadership behaviours and give them confidence when working with learners and less experienced staff.
The workshop is highly interactive and will be fun! You will learn much about your own communication and teaching style and we hope that participants will enjoy some of the lighthearted moments along with the theory and the practice.
Prior to undertaking this training package, the individual must fulﬁl the following criteria:
- Be a suitably experienced member of the care team with their manager’s permission to undertake this training.
- Work in an area where there is sufficient need for training and knowledge transfer to enable the individual to maintain competence.
