Trainers Exchange is a lively, enjoyable quarterly event where people involved in learning or training get together to learn, share and have fun together.
If you are a trainer, training manager, or are involved in learning and development in some way it's an ideal opportunity to meet like-minded people in the sector, share your ideas and experiences with others, and develop your own skills and knowledge. The meetings are a friendly, supportive space where everyone can get to know each other, learn from each other, work together, and have fun together. A perfect opportunity for you to:
Workshop topics range from current research and good practice to training tools and techniques. Some of the workshops from the past couple of years include: Neuroscience and Learning; Using the outdoors in training; Using music in training; Making the most of your voice; Neuro-Linguistic Programming; Transactional Analysis; Using storytelling to enhance learning; What the Equalities Act means for us as trainers; Evaluating training; Mindfulness; Increasing learning transfer; Secrets of the Brain; Facilitation skills.
Our next event
Our next event is on Friday 29th June from 10am to 4pm. Workshops will include:
Embodied Learning with David Dodd from Awareness and Change
Embodied learning means embracing new behaviours and patterns of doing, and over time shifting to a new way of being. As an empowerment coach and yoga teacher, David has a deep experience of facilitating lasting learning and change – a journey which takes focus and time. In this session we’ll play with a few exercises and explore a simple model, giving you an introduction to embodied learning and some accessible tools to incorporate into your work.
Learning with Metalog with Steve Creffield from Evolve Integral
Metalog Tools are designed to trigger whole mind-body-head-heart engagement and learning, generate focused group working, and provide a living metaphor that can be explored from multiple angles. Steve will share his experience of using Metalog tools, introduce some of the activities, and explore how they might support our practice as trainers, facilitators and managers. Be prepared to get involved, have fun, and learn along the way as you try out some of the tools and explore how they might be used in your own work or organisation.
Get Ready to Grow with Nicki Davey from Saltbox
Is your work so focused on helping others to learn that you lose sight of your own development? Is most of your time spent either managing, designing or delivering the training and other formal learning activities that make up the 10% in the 70:20:10 model? The model suggests that around 70% of work-based learning comes from our own experiences, 20% from the people around us, and just 10% comes from training or other formalised learning interventions, so in this workshop, we’ll explore 70:20:10 in relation to our work in developing others, but importantly, we'll also use it to look at how we manage our own personal development and growth.
"A wonderful opportunity to meet with other trainers from a wide range of backgrounds. Every time I take away something to use in my own teaching. The relaxed atmosphere is very conducive to trying out new things, ask for and offer help to other trainers, and make new friends!" Eva Ruijgrok-Lupton Mindfulness Teacher
