About This Class Series

Since 2011, General Assembly has offered transformational adult learning to over 50,000 learners across the globe. Our tech-enabled courses have consistently high participant satisfaction rates, despite the fact that the majority of our instructors are industry expert with little to no prior teaching experience.

What is our secret to radically reskilling and upskilling folks for careers in high tech industries? Simple! Our proprietary Training for Trainers (T4T) program has been built from the ground up to prepare subject-matter experts to confidently lead transformational learning for adults. For the first time ever, General Assembly is making our Training for Trainers (T4T) available to the general public.

This is a blended learning experience that combines self-paced online learning with live online instructor-led discussion sessions. Each week, we’ll suggest an optional project you can complete to apply your learning. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from GA’s Instructional Leadership staff, as well as the top instructors in the GA Expert Network. Peer-to-Peer networking and support is available through an online discussion forum.

Live sessions are offered weekly on Tuesdays at two times: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm Eastern and and 7:00 - 8:00 pm Eastern. Join the session that works for you; both will be identical in content. If you can't make the session live, we'll send you a link to a recording.

Self-paced online learning lessons are highly recommended, but not required. We'll provide a link to access the learning materials, and you can decide when and how to complete them. You'll get more out of the live sessions if you complete that week's self-paced content BEFORE joining.
