Diversity Train the Trainer Programme

TDCI’s Diversity Train the Trainer Programme provides a complete solution equipping and empowering trainers/human resource practitioners to facilitate diversity related interventions within their respective organisations. On completion of this programme the trainees will have the necessary knowledge, skills and attitude to present diversity related interventions. 

The Train the Trainer programme can be customised to enable Diversity facilitators, Inclusion Ambassadors or Transformation champions for the role and function that they will play in their organisation's change or transformation initiative.  The knowledge and facilitation skills of the attendees, as well as the context and outcomes of the organisational initiative will be considered in the final structure, process and content of the programme.  An outline of our basic Diversity Train the Trainer Process is however provided below.

The aims of the train the trainers programme are firstly to introduce and orientate the learners to the field of Diversity and related dynamics, and secondly to provide them with the basic knowledge, skills and attitude required for conducting diversity related interventions. The methodology used is customised to the specialised field of diversity training, and participants who have done other train the trainer’s programmes will not be able to be exempted from this part of the programme. 


The train the trainer programme consist of 3 separate workshops, each with its own process, content and outcomes. In total the above mentioned train the trainer workshops thus runs over a period of 6-days. Due to the intensity of the session, the workshops are normally scheduled in such a way that there are gaps between the different workshops.  This offers the trainers the opportunity to reflect on and integrate their learning.


The trainers will also have to do theoretical and practical work/assignments between the sessions. The assignments will be aimed at (1) integrating and applying the knowledge and skills gained during the previous workshop and (2) preparing for the next workshop.

More detail about the 3 Diversity Train the Trainer workshops:
