RedR India’s Training of Trainers is very practical and the emphasis is firmly on learning from doing. Participants will learn through experience, observation and feedback. Sessions on adult learning, participatory training method and training aids will be immediately put into practice by participants through the designing and running of their own short training sessions. The course includes options to explore particular topics in more detail, and time is set aside to review other approaches to meeting learning needs.

Participants will also develop plans for their own individual training project to be implemented after the course. They would be encouraged to team-up with fellow participants to develop, design and deliver training for future RedR India courses.
