Seven Secrets of Successful Training

1. Put the emphasis on learning rather than teaching

Put the emphasis on helping the students to learn rather than merely teaching them. Because the students take an active, rather than a passive role in their training, their skills will be developed more quickly and should be retained for longer.

2. They should learn only what they need to know

Make sure that the training objectives are derived from a task analysis and relate to what the students actually need to know.

This may mean leaving out what has come to be the accepted content of the course, but it does not prevent the inclusion of material for confidence and motivation reasons. An essential part of finding out what they need to know is determining what they already know - there's not much point in going over old ground.
