About the Course

The Train the Trainer course has been developed to improve and support the development of skills, knowledge, critical thinking, decision making, values and behaviour of trainers in the workplace.

Target Groups

  • NVQ assessors
  • IQAs
  • Pre-registration trainee pharmacy technician tutors
  • Pre-registration pharmacist tutors
  • Integrated degree tutors
  • Diploma tutors

Course Delivery

There are four modules available in total.

Two modules delivered via face to face study days:

  • Mentoring Skills
  • Teaching Skills

Two modules delivered via e-learning on UEA Blackboard:

  • Assessment in practice
  • Education – theory to practice

The four modules are stand-alone and can be undertaken separately according to the needs of your role, or undertaken as a complete course.

It is advised that you liaise with your workplace education lead in order to decide which, if not all of the modules you will be required to complete. It is recommended that all four modules are completed to gain the full understanding and range of skills of a trainer. 

If you are completing or have completed modules individually and you decide that you would like to sign up for another module you have not completed, you can do this at any time.
