Planning and delivery of training

This module aims to develop the training skills of professionals designing and delivering social and health care training to professionals. On this module students will design, develop, deliver and evaluate a minimum of two training events in a professional setting. They will also develop a training manual related to their chosen training which can be used by other training staff.

Students taking this module are required to identify and analyse learning and development needs which might be met by the provision of training. They will then undertake independent research and develop a short training programme to meet these needs. Specialist tutorials are provided to ensure that the content of the training programme is fit for purpose.
