Training

For sports people training is everything – it is the key to unlock to success and realise potential. In the business world it is often seen as the soft and fluffy preserve of HR… We aim to make training an essential part of business life as it is in sport. To do this we make our training focused, applicable in the ‘real’ world and building on solid skills, knowledge which can continued to be developed and refined as participants become more skilful.

Our in-house team fully appreciate and apply the benefits of training. Some learning and development professionals state training to be ‘old hat’ and out of date compared to facilitation.

We see it differently. There is a time and a place for training and facilitation. For instance, if your company has a specific language, tone and manner you would like all employees to use when engaging with customers on the phone or over email, we would run a training session on why, what and how to do that. As the outcome is fixed, there is little point facilitating a session on how it could be done – then telling participants how to do it…

Our training follows a specific process driven cycle to ensure participants leave the room capable of applying the new knowledge and skill.

Testimonials

As part of my management training programme I had to complete Functional Skills in English and maths. I felt anxious and nervous as I hadn’t been in a learning environment for many years. However, my teacher (Vicky) was very understanding and patient, she understood my concerns. I can honestly say I have grown in confidence and I found the classes to be very practical and useful.

I had great encouragement and support from my teacher throughout the whole process. Without the support from my teacher and the Functional skills qualification, I would have struggled to complete the apprenticeship.

From what I learnt from my course, I have implemented this into my daily working practice. I have learnt so many great English and maths techniques which are extremely useful. I'm very confident when sending emails with my grammar and punctuation. I have become a confident reader whereas in the past I did not enjoy this. I have to work out various areas for our customers when pricing jobs. I used to really struggle with this aspect of my job, with the additional support from Vicky I no longer struggle.
