Train the Trainer


What is a facilitator?

Training Facilitators / Trainers are mainly used in adult education, and use their expertise in a subject to share knowledge and to guide a person to a higher level of competence. A Facilitator makes the process of learning easier by using outcomes-based training, which includes both theoretical and practical knowledge.

What are methodologies?

According to the dictionary a methodology is usually a guideline system for solving a problem, with specific components such as phases, tasks, methods, techniques and tools. A Facilitator uses a variety of tools, methods and techniques when facilitating a course.

Do facilitators need to be registered?

There is no clear yes or no answer for this question. Some of the SETA’s will require facilitators to be registered but most of them do not place a restriction on the facilitator used for training. A person will undergo training to become a facilitator to better their skills and understanding of facilitation and to comply with industry requirements.

The Facilitator has to determine the needs of the learners, possible learning barriers, previous learning experience, different learning styles, etc. It is also the responsibility of the Facilitator to ensure that the learning methods selected are appropriate for the learning outcomes to be achieved. Facilitation must promote open interaction and ensure that learners have an active role in their own learning. Facilitation must enable learners to draw from their own experience in their working environment and apply the concepts for themselves. The responsibility of the Facilitator is great and thus they need to meet a high standard of criteria.
