Training for Instructors

Workplace trainers benefit from our professional development opportunities. These workshops are available by request and held on-site. The content is customized for occupations for your industry.

Program and Curriculum Development

You have experience with classroom instruction and teaching to meet business objectives for your industry but you want to develop more effective programs, curriculum and lessons.

We mentor instructors on the following topics:

  • Developing an Essential Skills program or curriculum.
  • Redesigning existing curriculum.
  • Integrating Reading, Document Use, Oral Communication, and Numeracy skills into existing curriculum.
  • Assisting with assessment design (exams, tests, quizzes, prep guides).
  • Designing workplace-related worksheets to accompany course content.

Document Use in Workplace Training

Workplace training can involve reading many documents with complex information. In this workshop, you will get a better understanding of how document complexity can challenge a worker’s ability to succeed at training.

Topics covered:

  • Understanding drawings, schematics, labels, lists, tables, flow charts and entry forms.
  • Developing document reading skills.
  • Understanding document complexity.

This workshop aims to give you tips on teaching Document Use. It is not a workshop on how to design documents.

Mentorship in Workplace Training

Workplace training instructors can play an important role in contributing to the success of mentee-mentor relationships. This workshop will show how you can integrate mentorship into your instruction so that trainees will be better learners and future mentors.

  • Teach workers strategies for becoming successful learners in the classroom and on the jobsite.
  • Teach workers about their responsibility to share what they know with less experienced workers by using a mentoring strategy.
