“They know enough who know how to learn.”

In contemporary times, the need for effective trainers is very high. Having only job-related skills and knowledge does not ensure transference of these skills, knowledge and ability in the trainees/learners. There are many factors which are important to become an effective trainer. Acquisition, presence and appropriate application of these skills can make a trainer effective in transmitting skills and knowledge to the learners and bring about a change in their attitudes. Trainer effectiveness lies in the totality of training, incorporating all elements, right from planning and delivering to evaluating the effectiveness of training. Keeping this in view, the programme on Training of Trainers has been designed. The primary focus of the programme is on classroom application.


  1. To enable the participants gain an insight into their competencies as a trainer and the need for their further development.
  2. To enable the participants learn methodologies and technologies to become an effective trainer.


  • Learning Styles and Principles of Adult Learning
  • Presentation Skills
  • Handling Audio-Visual Aids
  • Case Study Method o Role Play Method
  • Use of Instruments and Structured Experiences
  • Ice-Breaking Exercises o Coaching Skills for Trainers
  • Evaluation of Training o Personality Development of Trainers


The programme is designed to facilitate experiential learning through interactive sessions, which are organized around case studies, group activities, discussions, psychological instruments, exercises, films etc.

More than the theoretical inputs, the programme will provide the participants hands on experience in building various skills along with appropriate feedback.


The programme is meant for officers who are posted or are likely to be posted as a trainer/faculty member in the training department of an organization. Any individual who aspires to become an effective trainer can also attend the programme.
