Abstract

Research at Roffey Park has shown that few trainers have a coherent theory base to underpin their practice. Trainers spend most of their time “delivering” training products which are theoretically often superficial and learned in an ad hoc and “seat of the pants” way. Sets out how trainers can strengthen their theory base and integrate it with best practice. Explores the different levels of theory and gives guidelines on how to select “appropriate” theory and, finally, methods on how to build up theory knowledge.
