Our tailored training aims at creating training which is relevant and made to suit your needs and objectives. The approach is to ensure our training does exactly what you want it to do. It means making sure the content, style and delivery is what you want it to be. Making the training precisely what you want it to be means it will deliver on your objectives.
What is tailored training
Tailored training means moulding it to suit your needs. We find clients usually have a business need that they want to address with training. This typically means developing awareness, supporting a new responsibility, or developing a skill. Tailoring the training makes this training more relevant to your people, which in turn means they will get more from it.
How is it tailored
We tailor our training in a number of ways:
Firstly we make sure the content is directly linked to your objecteives. So, for example, if you want to train on delegation skills, we will discuss with you what element of delegation needs development. It might be giving feedback, especially difficult feedback. Or it might be how to delegate the work most effectively. Whatever your need we make sure the content is skewed to your needs.
Secondly we look at language. Every market and every organisation has its own language. Words, terms and acronyms theat you use everyday but others might find unusual. We make sure we use your language in our training as this helps to add authenticity.
Next, we consider context. Through disussion with you we gain an undertsanidng of the context you want the trainig to be delivered. For example, it might be a skill area the firm wants to be merely aware of, or wants evertyone to get a lot better at. We acn emphasis this context in the way we design the training.
We use examples to illustrate ideas in our tailored training. These examples are taken from your world. For example, with our written communication training we ask you for examples of writing which illustrate the need for change.
When we design practice scenarios for participants to test their skills, we design these based on your needs. These might be scripts for reading out and analysis, or role-plays for practice. We make sure these are tailored to your world so that they feel like relevant situations ot the participants.
How much does it cost
We don’t charge for tailoring our training as it is all included in our fees. So this means you can get the training you really want at no extra cost.
How does it work
We start by asking you lots of questions about what you want the training to achieve. A discussion about your market, your people and your objectives follows. We’ve been tailoring training for a long time so we’re used to these discussions and the right questions to ask. From this talk we create a draft proposal for your consideration.
How does tailored training benefit you as a client
Tailored training means you get training which is more relevant to your organisation than off the shelf training. It also means your people will have an easier job in relating the ideas in the training to their work and behaviours.
What is the impact for participants
Our participants tell us again and again how relevant and engaging our tailored training is. Tailoring makes the training a better use of their time and much more relevant to their world. It means they don’t have to struggle to understand the relevance of any ideas introduced in a workshop. They can see straight away how an idea could work for them and how to implement a new idea. That’s because we frame ideas in their world, from their perspective.
What do participants say
When you read our reviews you will see how much our participants value the effort we put in to tailoring our training to their needs. It means they enjoy training which is relevant and useful.
