Our Train the Trainer programme aims to enable you to become an ODI Registered Trainer.

In doing so, you will learn to develop an understanding of open data principles and learn to create, deliver and evaluate high quality interactive training.

Ideal for those who are beginning to teach others about open data or those who have been doing it for sometime, the course will help you build your training skills and develop the way you teach open data in your specialist area.

Those who wish to become an ODI Registered Trainer can opt-in to be assessed as part of the course (at no extra cost). Assessment will occur at end of the course, and results will be given on the final day.

Run by our experts, Train the Trainer will include sessions on:

  • Creating interactive training
  • Competencies to take you from being a good trainer to a great trainer
  • How to build open data knowledge into your core specialist area (eg statistics, law, data science)
  • Peer-to-peer learning and assessment
  • Designing an open data training course
  • Strategies for your long-term personal development as a trainer

Benefits of this programme include:

  • Meeting and working alongside other open data trainers
  • An opportunity for you to create an open data training course
  • A follow-up mentoring session to help you with your continuous professional development after the course
  • A free evaluation and course feedback form to use on your courses
