Training key members of your team to deliver professional level training adds so much more flexibility to your organisation. Whether you're starting from scratch or looking to enhance your existing training, a ‘train the trainer’ qualification can help you raise the level of your delivery.

And, because your new trainers will have an SQA recognised qualification, they’ll have the credentials to deliver with confidence.

If you deliver vocational or classroom qualifications an assessor or verifier qualification will be required.

From training your own team to delivering training sessions to your customers, we can help you level-up your in-house training capabilities. We’ve built our reputation over the years as leaders in the ‘train the trainer’ market and we’d like to help you get to where you need to be.

The Quest Train the Trainer Difference

Our ‘train the trainer’ qualification isn't unique, but our approach to it is. We take time to understand your needs and the needs of each candidate. That gives us the ability to adapt our delivery and make the most of the learning opportunity. Throughout the process we communicate with our students as well as the business that employs them. We know our training will only be a true success if it makes a real difference to both. We can deliver this as an Open Programme or for one business (minimum 5 people).

Interested in taking this course yourself? Or are you responsible for securing ‘train the trainer’ for others?

Either way we'd love to hear from you.
