A report by Priyank Kumar Gupta

The Asia Pacific Regional Training for Trainers workshop was organized by the National Award Authority India (NAA) from 2nd to 5th April 2014 at The Sagar School, Alwar. The workshop was lead by Rob Oliphant (Asia Pacific Regional Programme Manager) along with Bivujit Mukhoty (Programme Manager IAYP India) and Skand Bali (Head, National Training Panel, India). I was a participant of the T4T workshop along with seventeen other participants from across the Asia Pacific Region (India 12, China 3, Nepal 2, Maldives 1). The workshop trained Award Leaders to become Award Trainers primarily focused on learning the use of training aids (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) and presentations. Other sessions included:
  • Training framework
  • Overview of NAOME assessment (needs, aim, objectives, methods, evaluation)
  • Training needs analysis
  • Training design
  • Multiple intelligences
  • Development of training materials
  • Award mapping
  • Group work
  • Development of training aids
  • Delivery styles & skills
  • Generation theory
  • Overview of International Award Foundation (IAF), Online Record Book (ORB) and IAYP India pilot
  • Quality assurance of Award units
  • Action planning & evaluation.
In order to be proficient in any of the above mentioned aspects of training, the participants were instructed on their role and responsibilities as future Trainers and were taught the essentials of giving clear instructions for an activity during a presentation through NAOME and TRaM (task, reason, method), CaRS (context, report back, summary). The participants were introduced to different learning styles and factors that keep the current generation ticking were also discussed. The participants learned the art of presentation of live scenarios to different stakeholders of the Award Programme.


After each presentation Rob Oliphant, Bivujit Mukhoty and Skand Bali provided their feedback which was very useful for providing a concrete base to the participant's training skills. The training team also shared the key notes and documents which will be useful for development of training aids. The workshop concluded on 5th April with the presentation of Training badges to the participants by Jayshree Balasaria (Principal, The Sagar School) Thanks to the NAA India for providing this opportunity to us and also a big thanks to The Sagar School for their great hospitality and support for conducting this workshop. Click for pictures
