Training and Education Program Purposes

The purpose of the Training and Education program is as follows:

1/ To respond to the requests of the District Leadership Team for specific training needs as requested

2/ To develop facilitation skills amongst the Toastmaster Community, by providing opportunities and provide support for less experienced facilitator to develop these skills.

3/ To provide opportunity for people across the Victorian Toastmasters Community to access quality training.

4/ To promote the following values and standards in our trainers, which is to understand and appreciate the importance of: adult learning principles; to respond to matters in a timely way and to be collaborative in the preparations and execution of training.

Adult Learning Principles: include: focusing on the needs of the trainees, encouraging collaborative approach to training, being responsive to different learning styles and providing training that that applies to the current dilemmas of the trainees.

Responding to matters in a timely way—Trainers need to work to deadlines in submitting information for publicity and other relevant information

Collaboration is a skill that needs to be developed in all trainers in their demeanour with other leaders and involved parties
