CTC invests hugely in our tutors, both initially and on an ongoing basis to ensure Instructor Trainers are:
The Instructor Trainer Award works through a mechanism of training and development during existing courses and attendance at a single weekend Instructor Trainer course. Leader and Instructor courses at each level are observed, assisted on, then provided in a progressive 'on the job' developmental process.
Through the process, we look for three key areas to be fulfilled:
Instructor Trainers are the face of CTC, the front line, and that means we help to generate the highest level of teaching, contributory ability and an ethos based on the principles of modern educational practice and trainee development.
Following initial training, you will observe and assist at each course level before delivering it. This requires a flexible approach and much depends on your previous experience and the rate at which you feel comfortable as your role increases. Hence, it may take 3 course 'shadows' to complete assessment and start providing at one level, or it may require more.
During your development as an Instructor Trainer you may, for example, become qualified to provide the Trail Leader Award whilst still training on the Technical Leader Award, resulting in you being paid as soon as you can provide at least one course level. Some Instructor Trainers are happy providing at just one level, while others look to work at all levels.
