Masters degrees in Training Methods equip postgraduates with the particular techniques involved in teaching and developing employees within a working environment.
Programmes are typically taught MA or MSC courses, though research-oriented MRes degrees may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Business Studies.
Staff trainers are essential for an organisation’s ability to develop and maintain its workforce’s competency, in order to also maintain its growth, vision and values.
It is to this end that you will develop an understanding of the principles for how people learn individually and within group formats. You will examine different levels of human resources structure, developing techniques which offer effective training for teams, departments, and whole organisations.
Consideration is given to how training methods differ across various industries, as well as comparisons between international models. As such, it is possible for you to specialise your studies for a particular industry.
Traditional careers include HR management and leadership roles within a variety of organisations in the public and private sectors. These could include charities, government agencies, and international NGOs (non-governmental organisations).
