What are open courses?

Open courses are where individuals book onto for a specific subject area at a specified location. They are a great way of developing your skills in an area or field and sharing the experience with others.

On our open courses, you will meet people from different backgrounds and different abilities; this is an excellent way of sharing new experiences and learning with others. However, we don't need to overload numbers on our courses, and you will find six or fewer in terms of numbers for the best learning experience possible.

We use venues that have been selected for ease of access and proximity to public transport. Furthermore, we want delegates to learn, and our venues are quality assured for training rooms that are conducive to a positive learning environment. Lunch and refreshments are included in the course cost, and typically our trainers will take you out for lunch so you can pick what you want.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ'S

Are courses accredited?

Courses such as PTT Train the Trainer, Advanced PTT Train the Trainer, Master Trainer, Coaching Skills for Managers/Trainers, Master Coach, Presentation Skills, Management Development Programmes and Essential Skills for Managers are all accredited by the ILM. Based in the UK as part of the City & Guilds group they are a leading provider of specialist qualifications. ILM is also recognised globally and many of their products and services are delivered and enjoyed by customers in many countries around the world.

Do I have to complete a portfolio or pass an exam to complete the course?

On courses that are accredited, they are performance assessed. No portfolios or additional tests or statements are required. Whilst on the training delegates are shown the skills and techniques required and they are then given opportunities to practise and develop. During this time our trainers offer support and guidance accordingly. A formal assessment is then conducted at the end of the course and one to one feedback is given focusing on what was done well and areas for development.

Are trainers experienced?

Our trainers have a vast experience in coaching, training and management and you can see their individual profiles on 'The Team' page. We pride ourselves on delivering the best possible training to our clients and we guarantee it will fit your training need requirements.
