Who are the tutors?

How do we train and support you?

Expand/Collapse Expand/Collapse

Building on over 40 years combined experience in human resource learning and development, the tutors utilize an experiential learning approach to their programs. This methodology of learning provides an opportunity for learners to engage with, experience and apply the learning in a practical way and also provides the opportunity for learners to receive feedback on their newly applied skills. The opportunity is also provided to learners to reflect on the full learning experience and how this might be of value to them in the achievement of their learning goals.

To assist and continue with skills development, we facilitate via email a post learning reflective practice utilising skills practice sessions recorded during the course. This assists delegates in embedding new learning, gives further support and enables them to define any further actions required.

This program offers one to one or group coaching as an additional element to further support the delegate and embed the learning process.
