An effective training administrator coordinates the administrative activities of the training function, maintaining and developing information systems to enable the department to operate proactively in employee development and training.
This programme is designed to ensure that delegates are:

  • Equipped with the essential skills to confidently give expert support in the planning and preparation of training events
  • Provided with a good knowledge of training systems, best practice and the interpersonal skills necessary to build positive relationships


The Certified Training Co-ordinator is endorsed by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM). Delegates will complete an assessment at the end of the programme and, if successful, will become certified with the ILM. The assessment will focus on the topics covered by this programme.


  • Identify the role and principal activities within the training department
  • Establish and develop a comprehensive administration system for internal and external training courses
  • Develop and maintain an efficient information system on training courses
  • Design and use quality documents: joining instructions, course programmes, course notes and course questionnaires
  • Write clear and concise letters and memos
  • Communicate effectively with all contacts and maintain a professional image
  • Organise work systematically on the basis of priorities


There are detailed presentations from a role model expert trainer supporting each of the topics together with interactive sessions of discussion.

There will also be many practical sessions where delegates have the opportunity to practice and learn by experience. Small group work, exercises and feedback will all be used to facilitate learning and develop skills, enhancing confidence at the same time.
