Deliver Great Training Courses In A Week
Training just got easier
You have probably been on both good and bad training courses. Unfortunately, it may be the bad ones that you remember - perhaps the content was badly ordered, the arrangements were poor, the speaker was boring. How can you prepare for and lead an outstanding training course? In this book we will show you how.
Sunday: What is training? What are you aiming to achieve? What are the basic different styles in which colleagues learn - and in which trainers train? What overall points should you consider and what practical arrangements do you need to think about, for example on timing and venue?
Monday: Identify the training needs clearly How to analyse participants' training needs, using various sources; use the needs to define clear learning outcomes that are both SMART and also relevant to participants' real work and jobs.
Tuesday: Design the course carefully How to continue to prepare well: think about the points you want to communicate and order them clearly; find a fresh angle; be motivational, inspirational and practical; write a strong beginning and round off your training well at the end.
Wednesday: Plan variety creatively Why the need to change the style of training regularly throughout the session is important to maintain participants' interest and involvement; plan variety; consider different ways to encourage group participation; use visual aids and PowerPoints effectively.
Thursday: Implement your plan successfully Go for it! Put all your preparation into practice on the day itself. How will you make a good first impression and make the most of informal times? Body language is important; how will you overcome nerves? Learn how to deal with difficult people.
Friday: Evaluate the training thoroughly Why identifying what went well and what didn't go so well is important; checking on 'learning' after the course is essential to determine changed attitudes, behaviour patterns, and so on. Review your training to see if it had its desired effects: if not, reassess and begin the process again.
Saturday: Refine your skills constantly You have completed your training course and evaluated it; now learn how to cultivate the qualities of a professional trainer, for example by keeping up to date with your subject, learning from your mistakes and mentoring a colleague to lead training courses.

Dysphagia Screening - A Training Resource Pack
This book is a comprehensive training pack for the use of speech and language therapists in the training of nurses. The pack has been designed within an internationally recognised competency based framework which is familiar to nurse practitioners. It includes advice on how to set up the training course, handouts for each of the 10 competencies e.g. The normal swallow; causes of dysphagia; signs and symptoms of dysphagia. Course administration documents are included in the pack. Also provided is an evidenced based screening procedure and rationale with a structured testing format which allows assignment of standardised ratings for each competenceny assessed. The course allows training at 2 levels. Firstly a half day course to increase dysphagia awareness and secondly a one day course with subsequent testing of competencies to enable nurses to categorise ward patients into those who are safe or unsafe to swallow, and make basic recommendations for eating and drinking. SLT students can also be trained using this course. We feel the pack is a timely acquisition for any SLT department given the need for round the clock ward based screening for dysphagia.
