If you wanted to provide training for a team you managed, but that training came from within the team, is there a single word you can use to describe this?

I.e. a senior member of the team is training the rest of the team, instead of an outside source.

Off the top of my head something like "innerteam training" implies what I want, but isn't a real word.

Ideally a single word, but a phrase could work as well.


"Peer training".

a person who is equal to another in abilities, qualifications, age, background, and social status.

    I really like this answer. It reflects exactly what is happening. – Tom Bowen May 11 '17 at 10:52

    yes, but it could do with some elaboration. – Glorfindel May 11 '17 at 11:01
  • Peer training suggests a flat, non-hierarchical structure. – ugajin May 11 '17 at 11:50
  • @ugajin I agree, but that is kind of what I was going for. I only mentioned "senior" in my example as I made the assumption that it would be a senior that had more knowledge and therefore did the training. But a junior member may have knowledge of an area they could train others on. – Tom Bowen May 12 '17 at 8:39

In house

The definition of in-house refers to something done or operated internally rather than obtained from a third party or an outside source. When a company does its own printing instead of sending it out to a printer, this is an example of a time when printing is done in-house.


  • That is something I didn't think of, but I suppose to me it implies within the company and not specifically the individual team. – Tom Bowen May 11 '17 at 9:37
  • I agree that at times it will need some help from context. – Phil Sweet May 11 '17 at 9:45
