Training Needs Analysis

An investment well spent brings you the best return. How do you ensure your investment in training is well spent?. Our Training Needs Analysis service helps you to identify precisely the learning needs in your organization. It will also help you to ensure that the learning medium, content and outcome of training reflect your specific needs. We will work with you to find the best way to ascertain what knowledge and skills are needed, whether across the whole organization, or for a group of staff or individuals or your beneficiaries and target audiences.

Consultancy Service

The consultancy services are offered in the area of training, research and evaluation. Arrange to meet with one of our senior consultants to identify your training and development needs. The initial stage of this service is a negotiation either by telephone or a face-to-face consultation meeting with one of our senior consultants who has a wealth of knowledge and skills. During this consultation, your needs are established and the appropriate services will be identified. Once it is clearer what kind of support you require, timescales will be worked out, consultants identified, and a more detailed programme of services will be planned.
