What do you call "a group of trainers"?!

A troop? A triumph? What's YOUR word?

Didn't find your answer?

So, we have "a gaggle of geese", "a bevy of beauties" and "a murder of crows"...

What collective noun can you come up with for "a group of trainers"?!

We don't really use the word training or trainers now so we call people with expertise in Learning; Learning Specialists.

I'm trying to think of a fun alternative. I'll come back later this evening when I've had a couple of wines! It's when I'm at my most creative! In the meantime, looking forward to reading your clever responses. Ade

Hodgepodge? A real icebreaker of a collective noun!

Ade, it depends on the subspecies....

>a train-wreck of trainers (those who are unprepared and keep losing the thread)
>a capture of trainers (those who love to take home 300 pages of flip-charted outcomes from each activity)
>a syndicate of trainers (those who just love to break the group into syndicates and make them work in small teams)
>a troupe of trainers (appropriate to those who think entertainment more important than learning)
>a troop of trainers (for those who may have learned their trade in the Army but who always want to push the learners outside their comfort zone)
>a drone of trainers (those who lecture rather than anything else)
>a luvvie of trainers (who want everyone to role play every scenario)

Are any of these any use to you?

'We don't call them trainers'? It would be interesting to dissect who does (plenty) and who doesn't - and why. I digress, that is a different topic!

An enthusiasm of trainers?

An androgogue of trainers?

A clunk of trainers? [because of the pennies dropping)

An enlightenment of trainers? (for when we want to be pretentious)

An All Star Squadron of trainers? (because Google said that's a good name for a team of super heroes)

A pair of trainers?

I'm on holiday, better get back to my sunbed...
