Job Interview, quick help needed

I have an interview for a training associate, training people to work within the company. I have no previous experience and would like someone to help find a website covering this topic.

    Some quick tips from google


    But in my experience some really important things to remember are -

    People like to learn in different ways -
    Seeing - videos, writing things down, showing how things are done, prepared and relevant slides
    Hearing - discussions of the issues you're training, involving others in conversations about why your training them and how it will help them
    Feeling - experience, practical work, tacticle tasks, doing what you are showing.

    Combine them the best you can. Try to use variety and make training something that is fun.

    Enjoyment, revelance and checking learning is taking place: Make sure the people you are training understand what is being done. Look for people who are excluded by the method you've gone with and try to include them without making them uncomfortable. Make sure you really know what you're training someone on, so you can tailor it to be really revelant.

    If you're training lots of people across a whole organisation try to bring together groups of people that will use what they are taught in similar ways so you can really make it relevant to all.

    Check during and after training that learning is taking place. The best way to do this is to have people involved in doing what they are being trained to do, often and in simple ways. Build complexity but be prepared to slow down if you need to.

    The end of the training session doesn't need to be the end of training - check in with people, set tasks, look how they are including what they've been training on during normal work. Consider when to refresh training and how to work with the managers of individual teams to keep the skills building.

    Above all remember this should be a benefit to people, not a hinderance. Never feel resentful if people don't want to be there, structure training in a way that builds on this and improves people's mood. Everyone should want to be part of training, whether its because they are learning something new and useful or just for a break from normal work.

    It's your job to sell the training to them and if it doesn't work out you need to go back to the drawing board and think what you did wrong, not what was wrong with them.
