What works and what doesn’t and what you need to do!
Are you considering working as an associate trainer, but not sure if it’s right for you?
Are you looking for associate work, but not sure where to start?
Are you fed up with spending hours on the web trying to find opportunities?
Anxious or uncertain about how to approach training companies and market yourself effectively?
If ‘yes’ was your answer to any of those questions, you’re in the right place!
My name is Sharon Gaskin, Founder of The Trainers Training Company. I work with freelance trainers to help you create successful and profitable businesses.
I started my first training business in 2002. Like many new freelance trainers I went through a huge learning curve in my first year and I found it very tough. I was an experienced learning professional and knew an awful lot about training but not how to set up my business and find opportunities!
That first year I spent a lot of time doing some really poorly paid associate work, that left me feeling undervalued and underpaid. Through hard work and perseverance, I began to work out what really made the difference to getting fulfilling and rewarding associate opportunities.
It’s all in this 60-minute webinar: How To Get Associate Work
The Trainers Training Company was established in 2009 as a direct response to the needs and requests that came from other freelance trainers who were struggling to get their businesses off the ground or wanted to make their existing businesses much more profitable. I am passionate about helping freelance trainers to succeed and enjoy the adventure of being a business owner!
Remember: this is NOT a get-rich-quick overnight solution – your success depends on you implementing these strategies and putting in the work!

Some thoughts from associate trainers:
I recently started up my own training business and stumbled upon Sharon’s Associate Alert Service and signed up to it. It has been without doubt and absolute transformation in creating a fantastic revenue pipeline for the business…the best investment I have made by a mile. I had so many leads to explore that I didn’t know what to do with them all and had to schedule in a few days to manage them properly!! Loads of them have converted or are in the process of converting to new opportunities to build the business. If you want to explore new ‘live’ training opportunities then I highly recommend this service…it is brilliant!Ben George
Sharon is someone that I find a brilliant go-to person as a subject matter expert with advice, client recommendations and Trainer Development for some years now. She has a wonderful bank of knowledge, contacts and is genuinely a very lovely lady that is highly credible in the Uk for Training Providers. A real must for any new and existing Freelance Trainer to keep pace in business today. Thank you Sharon – you’re a diamond!Sally Smith
