What You Need To Know About Instructor-led Training?

Instructor-led Training

Training with the tutor, or ILT, is the type of training with which we are most familiar. After all, we all spend our formative life in school classrooms, while a teacher provides us with knowledge. 

Let’s examine what training covers precisely by instructor-led and how it weighs against eLearning.

Instructor-led Training

The training provided by the instructor involves an individual who leads a class of students, providing the content to them in real time. These sessions can last from an hour to several days at a specific time and in a classroom setting. 

In a lecture format, an Instructor Led Training session can be delivered where the instructor speaks to a large group. This is also important for the teacher to communicate with the class more and answer questions as a training course. It can even be delivered in workshops in which learners are much more involved and the trainer plays a supervisory role and steps where necessary. 

It should also be remembered that preparation performed by the teacher is not limited to the classroom. Many trainers will conduct webinars with their students to offer their session remotely. 

Training by teachers vs eLearning is still one of the most competitive fights in the learning landscape. If you lean to the instructor, this is what you are in for:


Easier to adapt – an instructor can be spread more flexibly when eLearning is created and spread in advance. You should respond to questions and assess the general reception of your training, so that you can change things up there and there if needed. 

More social – The use of a social learning platform promotes collaborative learning and exploits intellectual capital. Nevertheless, an instructor can help students rebound ideas during a workshop and develop their working relationships and comprehension of the subject face to face. 

Easier to execute – When you book a standardized training course, it’s not something that students can miss. It requires a lot of planning and plans, so that everyone knows exactly when and where. With online learning you just have to concentrate on educating your students, so that they can never start signing on and taking it. 

Interaction between teachers and students is necessary if students are to understand the material in full. Any questions can be easily asked and answered, and additional assistance via instructor-led training can easily be offered. 

Training directed by instructors is better suited to active learning content discussions than any other teaching form. Participants also retain more information as they communicate with one another, and interacting with colleagues will improve the interaction between the teams. 

Microlearning techniques allow students to learn at their own speed, but remove the social dimension from the learning process. That is a lost opportunity as the brain interacts with other people more readily. 

Students may also depend on the help of other students in this sense. You will learn from each other and recall the contents of the course. You may also rely on the standardized essence of classroom learning to encourage daily education. 

It is the lack of momentum that is the principal danger of microlearning, so that having a certain time to learn and others will help to recover this momentum. Learning plans that include both classroom and micro-learning are often taken up by the AR in Training within 48 hours of the last lesson. 

The essence of your training can be the most critical thing when you create a training program. For example, when training factory staff to operate a piece of equipment, practical training is necessary so that staff can see and use the equipment themselves. In this scenario, training by an instructor is essential on its own or as a basis for a more comprehensive training plan. Furthermore, this training style is extremely useful to kinesthetic learners. 

Innovation in technology has allowed us to learn more effectively, but does not have to replace more conventional teaching methods. Training performed by the teacher has evolved with modern techniques and is as effective as other techniques. If used together with newer training styles, instructor-led training can be an excellent building block for a highly effective training plan. 

The Instructor-Led Teaching (ILT) has many advantages. ILT is often considered simply a trainer and a PowerPoint, but it can be a lot more. One of our customers, a leading gas and electric supplier, was honored recently for their “excellent training programs,” and a 3D simulation replicating live operations on a particular valve was created.

The 3D simulation allowed technicians to see what happened in the valve when these new modifications were made. The 3D simulation was integrated in the Instructor-Led Training and was reinvented into a one hour immersive learning environment by being a four-hour lecture. Upon preparation, the company found out that the technicians were able to complete the job faster , easier and achieve the first attempt successfully. An outstanding result for the company, the department and the technicians!

The opportunity for positive and constructive group outcomes is another advantage of ILT. You allow departmental dialog and feedback by including representatives from different departments within an organization. Although online conversations can provide the same incentives, they simply can not match the experience of face-to – face interaction. It is a perfect example as a large fast-food company organized a meeting between managers from many parts of the country many years ago.

Managers were able to learn from other managers with similar issues and learned how other managers addressed their challenges. This revealed essentially how putting together all had a positive effect on the success of more than 14,000 restaurants. 

A shared environment encourages the ‘Team Building’ approach and contributes to a far more positive result.

There are also other benefits for ILT, not least how students will communicate more with the instructor. If it’s clarification of a topic or the opportunity to ask a supplementary question, open discussion adds value and promotes involvement. Experienced learning and growth practitioners are able to build an atmosphere and training content that encourages a greater commitment to learning.

Through eLearning, Microlearning and Gamification, the learning and growth center begins in the instructor-led training classroom.
