Valuable ideas:

Have you ever thought about the difference between a teacher, a trainer, a coach, and a consultant?

Here are some simple but great ideas for you to keep in mind:

Within the business English a lot of teachers call themselves trainers, coaches, or even consultants. What's the difference?

  • A teacher is traditionally seen as someone whose task is to educate someone so that they can have more chances in succeeding in life.
  • A trainer, on the other hand is someone who is required to change person's behavior or an ability so that they could do a specific job. Training is job-oriented while teaching is person-oriented.
  • Teacher as a coach: A coach is someone who can help a learner take advantage of the learning opportunities in their own learning environment. It involves helping the learner to better understand his or her own strengths and weaknesses, and plan accordingly.
  • Teacher as a consultant: A consultant is an expert who is brought in because his or her skills or know-how is not available in the organization. In business English, the term can cover a wide area; it may include the ability to analyze communication and communications needs, it may require the teacher to recommend a training supplier, or it may involve the teacher negotiating with a number of hotels to choose the best location for a course, for example. Many freelancer teachers operate as consultants; they market themselves in order to gain access to a potential client, they discuss contracts, carry out needs analysis, they evaluate training delivery and outcome.
