Bespoke Training

5 good reasons to consider In-House training

  • You call the shots on content, dates, times, duration, frequencies, trainers, note packs, venues and so on. This is your programme and it needs to fit with your plans.


  • It’s integrated right from the start, with your policies, procedures, processes and protocols, each becoming better understood and reinforced through the training. Nothing is lost in translation like some open courses and everything has a practical and pragmatic quality to it.


  • Your staff are directly involved in the programme. Not just those on the training, or the Big Cheese coming in at the beginning or end to say a few words, but internal customers, specialists from other departments, the managers of the learners and more.


  • Training programmes become more strategic when they are commissioned to meet specific needs. You can place more emphasis on the need for change when your staff are learning together, at the same time, at the same rate and using the same materials. Feedback on any change plans is also immediate and coordinated.


  • Better value can be achieved too. Not just in terms of unit cost per head (though this can be significant), but in terms of increased skills transfer rates, the value of learning with and from each other, the instant feedback on change plans, the fact that everyone gets the same message at the same time – all of which increase the return on your investment.
