This course equips individuals with the proficiency required for managing and implementing training plans and delivery that are three-dimensional and transformative. Participants will delve into and acquire a robust understanding of theoretical principles and their best-practice applications. Moreover, participants will have the chance to connect these theoretical principles to the practical scenarios where they are tasked with the planning and execution of training. Emphasising the empowerment of participants to become adept practitioners in workforce training and development, the course thoroughly explores critical reflection on the research-informed key areas of the combined training planning and delivery process.

Being an advanced course, it is expected that attendees will possess a refined capability to critically evaluate and interpret academic theories. Consequently, the course demands that each participant proactively meet the essential criteria for every module. This course is not only suitable for those tasked with training plan formulation and execution but also for individuals responsible for managing, overseeing, coordinating, or leading training and development initiatives within any organisation. A principal requirement of this course is for each participant to create and present a defence of a training plan.
