Customised Programs

MRWED Training and Assessment specialise in programs that support the growth of Learning and Development professionals globally. Whether your team is just starting out, or are seasoned veterans, we can tailor a program to build their skills and knowledge and improve the transfer of learning to your audience.

Through our proven “participant centred” approach, we will help your Team engage the learners faster so you will save time, increase the retention of key concepts that in turn will reduce the amount of retraining needed and improve the motivation of learners to be more accountable for their own learning.  

If you are looking for training that is dynamic and fun, yet still enables your team to sharpen their skills and make the learning stick, then we have both accredited and non-accredited options for you to consider.

As a RTO, MRWED has the following qualifications on our scope of registration:

  • TAE40116 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment
  • BSB42015  – Certificate IV in Leadership and Management
  • TAE50116 – Diploma of Vocational Education and Training
  • TAE50216 – Diploma of Training Design and Development

Using these qualifications as a foundation to the Training, not only can we develop customised solutions with learning outcomes tailored to your organisation, we can also deliver and assess these in line with one or more of these qualifications to give your Team a formal Statement of Attainment for units completed, a full Certificate or even a Diploma!

Here is the feedback we have received from some of our custom courses:

I engaged MRWED to provide a short Train the Trainer course during our annual conference. Any trepidation I had about putting our varied group of trainers through the course vanished as soon as I met the trainer.   Jason met the brief – to provide our trainers with useful techniques for revitalizing their own courses – perfectly. All of our trainers came out of the course buzzing with enthusiasm and raring to get to their next course! MRWED will definitely be at the top of our list for our next professional development session.

The instructor was brilliant and conveyed the content extremely well. Steve was a fantastic facilitator.  The course itself I found to be really beneficial not only for my work as an instructor but also as a student it gave me structure of training and assessment and I believe that more regular sessions of this course would benefit the organisation and further professional development of the staff.  The course material provided was a professional as I could have asked for.

Really like the course, the presenter and the content. It was well paced and good quality.  Will definitely consider further training opportunities for professional development.

Four Ways to Deal with Difficult Behaviours in Training

Managing difficult behaviours in training can sometimes be more challenging than learning the subject matter or getting the timing right. Often classroom management is not covered in trainer preparation courses (or undergraduate teaching degrees, for that matter) so we are often ill-prepared to deal effectively with distracting, negative or counter-productive behaviour. Below are four techniques to assist trainers in getting back that control.

Using Flipcharts in Training

We know what you’re thinking: “Flip charts? Aren’t those so old school?” The answer: yes, but they also happen to be one of the most effective and affordable training tools available. First of all, they are low tech. You can use flip charts in a variety of environments regardless of electrical and technological resources. Secondly, and most importantly, they enhance the learner experience.

Five Methods for Fostering Learner Motivation

Every trainer has found themselves in the predicament of standing in front of a classroom full of people who would rather be anywhere else. It feels like an impossible task to overcome: We know that people learn best when they are motivated, but you cannot motivate other people. So, what is a trainer to do? You may not be able to motivate others, but you can create an environment that encourages self-motivation.

12 activities to put interaction into webinar training

Humans are social learners. The more involvement there is, the more likely they are to connect with and remember the content. However, it is very common for webinar training to be a more passive, “sit and get” journey rather than an active and participative experience. It should be remembered though, that when there is less involvement, retention is diminished.

Five Tips for Great Debriefing Answers

During a debriefing, the answers you give are just as important as the answers you’re getting from your learners. Good questions need good answers, and in order to ensure your learners are getting the most out of debriefings, good answers are vital. So how can you make sure you’re giving the best answers, and getting them from your learners? Below, we outline five tips for giving and receiving good answers in debriefings.

How to turn Brain Strain to Brain Gain

The competition for the attention of our audience is more-fierce now than at any other time in human history. There are just so many distractions; push notifications, instant messages, snapchats, wearable technology that beeps and buzzes, not to mention the plethora of streaming services that lure us in and turn us into binge-watching zombies.

How to End Your Class with Impact

It’s common for trainers to save the last 10-15 minutes of their session for questions. Sometimes those minutes are more uncomfortable than they are helpful. So, although this may seem like a good way to end the session, there are even better ways to do so.
Your course should end just as strongly as it began. Bring it full circle and end with a purpose by including these 4 steps:

Setting up a Group Activity

If your background is more of a lecture-based approach, it wouldn’t be surprising if the idea of group activities scares you. But don’t be afraid! Studies – and our own experience here at MRWED – prove that group activities result in much higher learning. They really do embody the idea that “adults learn by doing”.

Do you manage trainers? Are you looking for ways to get their enthusiasm for the job jumpstarted? Here are several ideas we've used with great success.

Tips to Improve Learning Retention

The hope at the end of a presentation is that the participants not only understood you, but can take the information you provided and apply it for years to come. The question is: how can you efficiently and effectively transfer your knowledge to the trainees so that it’s implemented in their workplace?
Try and use these three tips to help you improve learning retention.
