Introduction to Training Skills

Having a skill is one thing. Passing that skill on to others is something else!

This two day module for natural builders is an introduction to training skills.

It’s for natural builders who want to teach others both practically & theoretically.

Topics covered are:

  • Lesson Planning
  • Teaching & learning methods
  • Generating and using resources
  • Ice breakers & setting the tone
  • Scoping a course
  • Teaching a session – you will have the opportunity to prepare and teach a 20 minute lesson to the rest of the group.

This may sound scary but you’ll be among like-minded people who will support your learning and believe it or not it’s quite a fun course!!

The course will be led by Allan & Eileen Sutherland who, between them, have so many years of teaching experience that you’ll be able to guess their ages if we put down a figure.  They’ve also built their own strawbale house in Bulgaria and Eileen is a Director of Straw Works.

Why not add another string to your bow and join us at Hackney City Farm on 19 and 20 August? This 2 day course costs only £130.00.

We’d love to see you there.
