Facilitation Skills | Sustained Learning

Ted Learning delivers fun, engaging, memorable and impactful learning. We do this by using expert trainers and professional actors to create either observational or participative theatre, which fully complements and supports the theory. However the challenge is not just creating a fun and positive training day, its about really sustaining the learning and ensuring behaviours change for the long-term when back in the workplace.

Facilitation Skills | Continued Support

All our delegates have full access to our ted learning HUB – a web-based platform that enables all learners to continue the engagement with the trainer and actors, see latest case-studies and blogs from the ted learning team and engage with other learners, discussing their own challenges and successes.

WHY ted Learning?

Our training is observational and participative, using teams of actors to bring it to life. We recognise that taking part in role-play is not for everyone, so we offer observational training – this is where two of our acting team demonstrate scenes related to the course and delegates observe and comment on the behaviors. Where a business is more confident working with actors, we take this to the next level with participative training so delegates get to practice their newly learnt skills.
