Advice in how to get started in freelance training

Share this content

I'm seeking some advice on becoming a freelance trainer. Having worked in the media industry for many years as a music consultant/broadcaster/researcher mainly within radio, I now wish to branch out into a training career.

I'm very much interested in personal development, life coaching, mentoring and have some experience in running workshops as well as one-2-one albeit within IT.

How necessary is it to have a qualification? and if possible could anyone recommend a reputable Company.

Any other tips will be most welcomed.

Many thanks in advance!

I to am taking the first steps in becoming a self employed frrlance trainer. I have worked in the training organisations on and off for years but would now like to have a go on my own.

I would appreciate sharing information on how this can be achieved.
