Developing Talks, Training & Workshops

So you’ve got an idea for a training? This page will help you put it into practice. Use the linked section titles to take you to the relevant section of our Full Handbook on Developing Training.

Step 1: Capture your vision

The most important thing you can do to start off is to be clear about who you want to train and what you want them to be able to do.

You need to decide- At the end of the training (who)..... should be able to (do what)...

Think about how you will deliver it, how long it should last and who you will work with. Then stop and think and make sure that all your decisions embed XR's Principles and Values and XR’s Principles of Inclusivity

Step 2: Realise your vision

Structure your training in blocks building progressively towards your overall aim (which you decided above). Your final content block should allow rebels to practice this.

Step 3: Share your vision

How are you going to advertise to let people know about your wonderful new training?

To post your events to the XRUK website Events, Talks & Training Facebook Events, XRUK Facebook Events, Movement Broadcast on Telegram and Mattermost and the Regions & Nations Facebook Events, follow these steps:

XR UK aims to bring two million people into active support. That’s too many for you to train alone! Once you know your training is successful, think about how you can [train other trainers](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ih9iA9mYLd9yx29HDk_4fmjiL5uqGuqpN-EJfm- PeY8/edit#heading=h.1ksv4uv) to deliver it as well.

Step 4: Refine your vision

No training is perfect. Ask yourself these questions:

Better still, ask the rebels who’ve participated in the training. Offer them a specific time within the training to fill in an evaluation form. Don’t pay too much attention to individual comments (there’ll always be someone with a bee in their bonnet), but look for patterns and themes. Strengthen areas that rebels have appreciated and make changes which they’ve found less useful. Don’t be proud - make things better.
