Who is this programme for?

train the team

This dynamic four-week programme has been designed for trainers and facilitators at any stage of their career looking to embed Brain Friendly Learning tools and techniques into their training practice. Whether you are a seasoned trainer looking for a refresher, train as part of your role or are brand new to training, there is something for everyone in this programme!

Brain Friendly Learning is based on neuroscientific principles. The approach utilises a range of innovative principles to design and deliver stimulating content that is inclusive, supportive, treats each learner as a unique individual and dramatically increases knowledge retention.

This programme will provide you with an extensive range of tools, techniques and resources that will build your skills and confidence in designing and delivering Brain Friendly Learning content. The programme will cover tools and techniques that are relevant whether you are training in the virtual or face-to-face environment.

How the programme works…

checklist

The programmes will have a maximum number of 12 participants to ensure you can experience first-hand, the impact of Brain Friendly Learning and have ample opportunity to experiment and apply the learning to your own training sessions. We have found 12 is an ideal number to help facilitate connections, conversations and provide maximum peer support.

  • Each session is 2.5 hours.
  • Each session will be recorded – so if you can’t attend one session you can view the recording in your own time.
  • All participants will have access to our Learning Management platform Giraffepad. Through this platform you will be able to access the recordings from each session, pre-learning for each session, powerpoint slides, handouts, templates and other resources referenced in the programme.
  • You will also be able to message Annie and fellow participants directly.

About Annie

Annie Clarke

Annie has worked as a trainer and facilitator for nearly 20 years and runs a successful training company. She has developed her own unique approach to designing and delivering Brain Friendly Learning based on her principles of being supportive, inclusive and treating each learner as a unique individual. Her mission is to challenge the conventional and stale approaches to learning and development and champion the benefits of Brain Friendly Learning in the face to face and virtual training environment.

What do previous participants say?

“There wasn’t any aspect of course planning or delivery that Annie couldn’t help with and her advice left me feeling confident and inspired to run some really engaging and useful sessions. I’m not a natural at delivering training but Annie’s Train the Trainer has meant that I’ve been able to confidently deliver training that’s been both effective in achieving the required learning objectives and yielded positive feedback from delegates”
