Different ways to deliver your courses

If you are a New Trainer there are a number of different ways to deliver your courses, you need to make sure that they type of course you offer suits your delegates and companies they may work for.

Online courses

Courses can be self-paced and unaided: learners move through the course when it suits them, and do not interact with a tutor or other learners.

Also, a company may want a number of employees to do the same course the learners move through the course at the same time as other learners, often working to deadlines, but do not interact with a tutor

Fully online – delegates register on your course platform and proceed with the course with no interaction from yourself

Blended courses

Deliver the course by combining face-to-face interactions with online content or self-study.

Face to Face courses

You deliver the course in person: in a venue of your choosing or at your customers premises, within face to face delivery you could offer the following:

  • Open courses – courses of individuals who have registered
  • Tailored courses – are when you use one of your pre-written open courses and tweak it for a customer
  • Bespoke courses – are when you completely write a course for your customer to meet their needs

Work based learning

As the name suggests, this way of delivery provides delegates with real-life work experiences to aid their learning and improve their employability. They will experience theories in practice, you could do this through facilitating job shadowing or taking delegates on interesting field trips.

Delegate-led learning

Delegates facilitate their learning, by encouraging their peers to carry out group activities to discuss topics or solve problems. This helps them to think through what they have previously been taught and encourages collaborative learning.


Give your delegates extra activity to do in their own time between sessions. This could include, answering questions set by the Trainer, complete set quizzes, read books and articles, watch an educational video, play a relevant game for example.

Tele– or Video conferencing courses

When your delegates are in multiple locations this is an effective way to deliver your courses.

Audio or mp3 courses

Delegates plug in and listen to your course, ideal for people who travel, enables them to listen when mobile.

Web meetings, or Webinar courses

When video and audio both takes place, web meetings are arranged and online training sessions are conducted.
