Highfield Level 3 Award in Delivering Training (RQF)

The objective of this qualification is to support a role in the workplace. It is a practical qualification suitable for new and experienced trainers (external and internal) who wish to improve their classroom skills and obtain a training qualification which will also enable them to deliver regulated qualifications.

This qualification provides a good basis to help learners get a ‘first foot’ into training. The focus is on the effective delivery of training, allowing learners to develop planning, preparation and delivery skills, including delivery methods, questioning techniques and time management.

It’s mainly aimed at those who will use pre-prepared training materials to deliver training within the workplace, as opposed to a training qualification that is more focused on procedures, protocol and regulatory requirements, such as education and training.
