Bespoke training courses

We have extensive experience working with organisations to develop and deliver high quality, relevant, cost effective bespoke and tailored training courses.

We can create training activities that are specifically designed for your organisation. Talk to us about how we can create a customised or in-house programme for you.

What we can offer your business

We work with businesses and organisations to develop and deliver high quality, relevant, cost effective and bespoke learning solutions. We can:

  • deliver courses from our existing programme specifically for your organisation
  • tailor content from our courses to suit your business
  • design a completely bespoke training programme or activity to meet your organisation’s objectives.

Learning is practical, with a particular emphasis on discussion and interaction, and how new skills and knowledge can be applied in the workplace. We aim to ensure that employees continue to develop their skills to the fullest which will help organisations to remain innovative, competitive and up-to-date.

Our training provision is constantly updated to reflect business objectives and the latest industry developments.

Courses are underpinned by world-class research and teaching expertise, and informed by our close links with industry, professional bodies and the public sector.

Depending on objectives and subjects, bespoke CPD activities are available in a range of formats - offering adaptability and catering for your individual business requirements.
