Instructor-led training is not a new training concept. However, the discipline has experienced significant transformation over the past decade, and especially over the past year and a half. These changes to the industry have allowed providers to improve efficiency, effectiveness, and desired outcomes of instructor-led training. Undoubtedly, more and more organizations, individuals, companies, and institutions are embracing instructor-led training, particularly virtual instructor-led training, to enhance organizational, individual, corporate, and group performance.


Instructor-led training has continued to demonstrate a promise for the future, a promise to show more vigor, confidence, courage, and excellence in training programs. It continues to distinctively stand out as an effective, well-thought-out training approach that focuses on the participants and aims to realize training outcomes and positively impact participants. If you’ve been wondering about the future of instructor-led training, you’d better start implementing this type of training at your organization. Instructor-led training is here to stay!


Increasingly, the world is moving towards acquiring knowledge, skills, and experience through technology and the digital world. Virtual instructor-led training promises to deliver through this medium. If you are in a remote location or perhaps unable to travel for courses, virtual instructor-led training is the answer to your challenge. This training approach understands that some material is complex while still embracing flexibility in its approach. If you’ve got other activities to attend to such as a family obligation, and but you still need to acquire new skills, virtual instructor-led training is for you. You can complete this type of learning from the comfort of your home or office.


Secondly, instructor-led training continues to fill the gap found in other styles of training by exposing participants to experienced, committed, and dedicated trainers. Organizations are looking to increase the knowledge of highly qualified people in their areas of focus. Instructor-led training provides these types of people with new, relevant skills once they complete their training programs.


While many businesses still have not fully returned to the office, or do not plan to send employees on as many business trips as they once did, virtual instructor-led training is the answer and has become one of the most dominant training approaches for many organizations. Unlike traditional, classroom or workshop-based approaches, virtual instructor-led training has embraced technology and continues to transform to meet the arising needs of the community and individual participants. As a training method that is prone to change and respond to emerging demands, virtual instructor-led training is likely to continue and evolve to respond to new challenges and needs. 


Additionally, instructor-led training works for all kinds of participants. The training approach considers the implication of different needs within organizations and at individual levels and can be customized based on a firm’s goals or an individual’s goals. It responds to personal training needs in the same way it does to organizational needs, and offers flexibility that more rigid programs cannot adapt to.


Finally, instructor-led training will not die for the simple reason that it is flexible, people-based, and can respond to current, emerging, and unforeseen future challenges. Its evolutionary nature makes it a fit for all generations and organizational or individual needs. 


So, if you’ve been imagining instructor-led training would die one day or cease to exist and give room for other training approaches, you’ve just got the answer. And to dispel any further doubts, instructor-led training will exist into eternity because of its flexibility, appreciation of technology, and focus on attaining individual, group, organizational, or institutional training goals.
