Designing & Delivering Virtual Training

Live virtual course

The impact of COVID-19 has highlighted just how important it is for Learning & Development, HR and Organisational Development professionals to continue to perform their roles effectively whilst working remotely and at distance from their colleagues. Organisations need to be able to support all their remote workers and ensure that they can maintain and improve their own professional skills whilst they are unable to attend face-to-face training courses.

The challenge here is that ‘traditional’ classroom training courses don’t automatically translate into online delivery. As such, the Designing and Delivering Virtual Training programme will help you develop and run successful live virtual learning courses.  

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

> Learn the key principles for developing powerful course materials that are optimized for a virtual classroom format 

> Understand and apply research-proven models in courseware development using CIPD’s 4 -stage approach

Discover how to convert existing face-to-face training programmes to effective virtual classroom training 

Sharpen your virtual learning facilitation skills using technology, facilitation techniques and practical tips to achieve the required learning outcomes

The programmes run over time to allow you
to apply your new skills and personalised individual follow ups support better learning retention.

A learner-centric approach

The course content is designed to engage you in various ways to meet your desired learning outcomes, 
with the ongoing support of your dedicated CIPD trainer.

Active learner engagement

The live virtual programmes combine self-directed learning 
with facilitated technology-based activities, to reinforce learning, 
support knowledge retention and skill application.

Social learning

Activities are designed for you to interact with other course delegates, share experiences, challenges and ideas, ask questions and create a memorable, connected learning experience.
