Corporate Trainers Set the Tone For Instructor-Led Learning Experiences
The first thing we hear clients say when first discussing their needs is that they’d ideally like to use their internal trainers to do the job.
Of course, that would make the most sense as far as time and budget go. The problem however, is that many training departments are already operating at capacity and having an unscheduled project like a new technology rollout or worse, losing a key resource means there simply aren’t enough bodies to go around. That’s when they start to look at other options and are sometimes surprised at how effective a contract training provider can be.

4 Ways A Contract Trainer Can Help Your Learning Programs
Hiring contract trainers ensures your team can continue to stay focused on their current key deliverables while also allowing you to meet the needs of the requirements of the new project on hand.
It’s the job of the contract trainer job to provide you with a robust and fully functioning framework to manage your new training program. They efficiently deliver that content to employees and also ensure that you are up to speed on progress, and overall user adoption along the way. Taking all of this off your plate means there’s more time to focus on the projects that you’re currently working on and inevitably achieving higher efficiencies across the board.
Show Me the Money
At TrainingFolks we’re aware of budgets regardless of scope of the project and work to ensure that goals can be achieved within set dollar amounts. This is due to our global network of experienced contract instructors that can develop eLearning, vILT, ILT or a blended learning program based on scope and budget.
Risk Less Gain More!
As with anything that is done internally, there is always the risk of something failing along the way. This can range from technology issues, to sick days, to the sudden departure of the trainer working on the project. Why assume the additional risk when you don’t have to? A contract trainer ensures that the responsibility to deliver every step of the way remains with them.
Traits of a Good Contract Trainer
Though it may sound like an obvious trait it is the most crucial one for a trainer who wants to succeed. Since you are often considered the Subject Matter Expert during your delivery, you need to be able to communicate specific information with clarity so that your learners are able to understand and grasp the information. Being an effective communicator also comes with being a good listener. Listening involves taking in information, processing it, understanding it, and then using the information to form intelligent responses.
Everyone is different when it comes to learning, so it is hard to say that every session you have will be the same. Learner styles, personalities and communication styles vary but your job is to still effectively deliver the same content and achieve results. What works for one company, group or individual may not work for another therefore understanding their needs and adapting accordingly is critical to success.
As a Contract Training Professional, you may have several projects at once that you are trying to work on. This makes it extremely important that you keep an organized schedule. In this way, you can ensure that you are using your time effectively and meeting deadlines faster. Clients also want to know that you can multi-task and handle a fast-paced environment, all while still maintaining a high level of satisfaction.
Learning your material as soon as you get it is very important. It really helps to know every aspect of what you are teaching because you want to be able to answer any questions that may come your way. Being knowledgeable on the material you are delivering will also enable you to improvise if things don’t go as planned.
Being Able to Learn and Grow
Any professional that wants to continue to grow and succeed must know how to learn from their mistakes and apply that lesson. Be sure to take in constructive criticism in a way that can further develop your skills. Continue to use your learning experiences to become a better professional.
