5th - 8th February 2018, BBC Academy, Bristol, UK

ttt 2016 330Applications are now being accepted for the Train the Trainers workshop to be held at the BBC Academy in Bristol from 5th – 8th February 2018
The workshop will start on Monday 5th at 14:00 and finish on Thursday 8th at 13:00. Please note it is important that delegates do not depart before this time.

This interactive 4-day workshop is designed for anyone wanting to develop his or her confidence and skills as a trainer.
By the end of the training, the delegates will be able to:

• Manage small groups effectively
• Recognise the strengths and weaknesses of different ‘learning styles’
• Deliver your training sessions in a variety of different ways
• Deliver effective one-to-one coaching
• Plan and deliver a training course of their own design

As in 2017, the workshop will be led by Mia Costello, a freelance editorial trainer who regularly works with the BBC Academy as well as other broadcasters around the world. She has led a number of CIRCOM workshops over recent years. She’ll be joined by Carla Verhagen, a former senior editor from regional TV in the Netherlands.

The training is provided by CIRCOM Regional free of charge for employees of its member stations. All other costs (travel, accommodation, meals) must be paid by the applicant or their station and delegates need to book their own accommodation. 

There are only 10 places available for this workshop so early applications are recommended. It is usual that only one place will be available per member station.

Deadline for applications: Monday, 15th January 2018
