The Effect of Good Training

What makes good or bad training?

Have you ever had to sit through a training presentation that was perhaps boring, pointless, confusing, irrelevant, or even overwhelming?

Well don't worry - we all have at some stage!

Instinctively we know what makes for bad training - but it can actually be quite haed when it comes to designing good training of your own.

We're very passionate about good training standards at Fantom Factory, so here are some top tips from us to help you design yours!

1. Clear training objectives

Clear training objectives

Measure the success of your training and keep your content relevant.

Make sure your students really benefit from what you advertise at the beginning.

2. Minimise Distractions

Minimise Distractions

Engage students wiht structured content tailored for individual learning styles.

Help your learners to enjoy their training and focus on one task at a time.

3. Add practial value

Add practial value

Apply training to realistic scenarios to demonstrate the real value of the training.

Students who can practice their learning remember more and stay engaged and motivated too!

4. Value each student

Value each student

Make time and effort to be supportive for each of your learners.

Let your students know their learning (not their credit card) is important to you!

5. Provide feedback

Provide feedback

Assess student progress, consolidate learning, and reward feedback.

Feedback is important throughout the training - more than just a final certificate!

6. Student aftercare

Student aftercare

Provide materials and resources for students to reflect on the training and take it further.

If your training is worth remembering after the event is over - let it live on!
