Training Strategy Template



Does anyone have any top tips or a template related to training strategy specifically in the IT software applications field please?

I am looking to compile a strategy for users on a train the trainer basis.  For example, the training will be delivered to key users, who will then pass on to users locally.  An added dimemsion is that the initial training delivery will be in English, and the passed on to end users in their local language.

Many thanks.

  1. Training Strategy

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for your response. Very, useful.

    I think that I may have confused thins somewhat.  Essentially I am looking for a training strategy template, and if anyone has one aimed at IT training it would be great!





  2. I’m not sure what a template would look like

    Hi Steph,

    I’m not sure if anyone out there has a ‘strategy’ template but the strategy is your highlevel view of what you are trying to achieve and how. I would think this would be no more than one side of A4 that decribes the longterm goal and, at a highlevel, how you intend to achieve it.

    This, then, is something you can share with people, build your project plan around and use to check how far you have got.

    It sounds like you already have the begnings of this. Assuming you are trying to upskill a large audience of end users part of your strategy is to train key users and have them train the end users. Another is that these super users will be responsible for translating into local language.

    I hope that helps.



  3. How will you deliver the training?

    If it’s I.T. or software related training, I’m guessing that you’re going to be doing some sort of video training?
    A tip for you would be to chunk up your videos in small 5-10 minute recordings.
    This greatly reduces the time it takes to update your videos; as most software is constantly being updated, it’s normally not long before your videos become out dated.

    Chunking them up like this, allows you to quickly identify which grouping of videos have been affected by the update and need updating themselves.
    If you’ve created a 25 minute video and it’s only a tiny section in the middle that needs changing, you’ve got to re-record the whole 25minutes again. Not great!

    Other than that, I recommend mind mapping your course out. (I use FreeMind)
    Starting from the top 4-5 core competencies, moving down to smaller individual modules each containing around 4-5 key take aways. End modules with action steps.
    I also provide pdf worksheets for exercises and tend to survey/test their knowledge at the end of each module.

    I know it’s not a template, but just some tips that have served me well.
