It is clear that technology has started to transform both the role of the training professionals and the Instructor-led Training (ILT) delivery model. So, how do we get ahead of this curve and yet achieve enhanced learning experience & outcomes. To best exploit our expertise and enhance revenue potential, how does DIGITAL-ILT impact the overall learning & development life-cycle?


With the advent of MOOCs, are training professionals slowly but surely going the way of the dinosaur. In an Instructor-led Training (ILT) model if it is possible to imagine training 100,000 learners, it may take hundreds if not thousands of training professionals to do so. But, MOOCs are saying that most likely it can be covered by one or a few. The general consensus is that technology always does and will continue to add benefits but the approach and the learning outcomes are important considerations.

Enhancing revenue per engagement, scaling up sales and increasing availability are the some of the many day-to-day challenges faced by training professionals. By digitally transforming the ILT delivery model, we can begin to effectively manage the challenges.

In this Train the Trainer masterclass, we tackle the new and evolved DIGITAL model in a step by step and collaborative approach over the course of two weeks via social discussions and a series of virtual webinars & workshops.

Achieving certification requires successfully creating and delivering your own DIGITAL-ILT program. Of course our facilitators and mentors are there to assist throughout.

At completion, learners have created their own DIGITAL product and have garnered the skills, knowledge and confidence to start leading in the digital economy.
