Training teams are so busy preparing and delivering transport and logistics training there is little time left in the day for their own professional development. Who’s teaching the teacher?
If there is just one day of the year for training teams to attend an event and take the time for their own learning and development, we recommend our conference – tailored to training teams with an agenda packed with relevant topics.
Taking place on 21st June 2018 at the Telford International Centre, the conference includes a wide range of insightful, educational and thought-provoking sessions that will equip training managers, learning and development managers, lead trainers and instructors with new knowledge and skills to take back to the businesses so they can continue making a difference. What’s more, CILT UK members attending the conference will be awarded 3 hours of CPD.
You can see the full agenda here. However, here are just 4 of the conference sessions that training teams cannot miss!
Forklift training myths – when to train, when not to train
With so much legislation and frequent updates, even experienced training professionals and managers can be unsure what materials handling equipment training is required. However, failure to deliver the correct training not only poses a safety risk, but could also mean that your employer fails to comply with the right legal standards. In the event of an incident, this can leave companies open to considerable legal action. Over compliance is also a problem, and delivering unnecessary training often causes businesses to incur considerable extra costs.
This session will explore, and dispel, the most common myths around material handling equipment training so that your training team can be sure to deliver the right courses for your operation.
Managing behaviours in training
Even if your training team has the best course materials, to get the best results instructors and managers need to really understand their trainees, and how to cater to their differences.
This essential session for all training professionals will give you the chance to learn more about the reasons behind trainee or employee behaviour. In this seminar you’ll learn how to manage behaviour effectively, understand preferred communication styles, recognise triggers and identify the role of emotions in behaviour.
Making a business case for training resource
People are, of course, a key consideration in any training programme, but with a variety of business objectives, and costs, to consider it can be difficult to convince senior level managers to invest in additional training resource. Training is an investment, so it’s understandable that a company wants to see a good return.
In this session you can hear how to successfully plan, put together and present a business case for additional investment in training and training resource.
Debate: Can e-learning, simulators and virtual reality find their place in practical driver and operator training?
With so much talk about Industry 4.0 and the digitalisation of the logistics industry, there is inevitable change ahead for training teams. But can e-learning, simulators and virtual reality really contribute to learning practical skills such as LGV driving and forklift operation? Or will traditional practical and classroom based training continue to dominate?
Join this debate to discuss these points and consider whether the cost is worth the benefit for your business. You’ll also pick up some tips on how training teams can get the best out of new technologies.
Remember, the Talent in Logistics Awards will also be taking place on 21st June 2018 at the Telford International Centre, rewarding the exceptional professionals in the transport, warehousing and logistics industries.
