Develop your workforce

The organisations that flourish are those with a versatile and multi skilled workforce that can adapt to change in a heartbeat. We have a proven track record in training staff with up-to-date knowledge and a vital skill set. From low-cost, low-commitment events to tailored courses, we offer the right training and professional development to suit your organisation perfectly.

Short courses

If you have specific skills needs or want an injection of inspiration, our short courses are the perfect option. Lasting from just an afternoon up to a couple of days, these courses range from more common topics such as coaching and mentoring and developing leadership skills, to specialist subjects such as behaviour change and even as specific as the forensic investigation of light bulbs!

Longer-term courses

For more rounded development, our postgraduate courses such as an MSc or PhD can give your staff expertise, and the ability to look at challenges, opportunities and solutions from a new perspective. Developing an employee’s approach to their work can have far reaching benefits for the organisation. From identifying and capitalising on new market opportunities to more effective problem solving that delivers innovative solutions, essentially making a greater impact.

Higher and Degree Apprenticeships 

If developing your own talent pipeline by employing an apprentice or developing the skills of your existing workforce is more suited to your business, we can work with you to provide a responsive and high quality learning experience in the form of higher and degree apprenticeships. We're currently working with employers and colleges to deliver apprenticeship programmes in business and management, engineering and facilities management, as well as developing trailblazer standards and new degree apprenticeships in other sectors such as construction, quantity surveying, digital technologies and health and social care. Find out more.

Bespoke courses

If you can’t find a course that covers everything you need it to, we’ll develop a bespoke course to meet your specific needs. We’ll work with you to identify the particular needs of your company. Then we’ll design and deliver a tailor-made development package in a way that suits you. The skills your employees learn will allow them to drive real organisational change – and ultimately improve on the bottom line. By covering all of your organisational skills requirements in one programme, you get the best possible value out of your training budget.
