Choosing a training solution

Defining the aims of your programme

Anyone considering project management training has many options to consider including e-learning, open courses, in-house courses, mentoring and coaching.  In choosing one or more of these alternatives, it is also important to decide whether the programme should lead directly to accredited qualifications.

Our programmes are designed to provide excellent face-to-face learning experiences that promote the personal performance of those involved. This can take many forms, including training workshops, small group tutorials, modular programmes, regular mentoring and coaching.

Whilst our training is designed primarily around the skill needs of those attending, rather than to meet the needs of a particular syllabus, our trainers regularly run courses accredited by the major project management associations and professional institutions. Delegates studying for qualifications awarded by these and other bodies have often found our holistic approach complements previous training helps them apply the theoretical concepts and methods of project management in their day-to-day environment.
