Training and Development

We offer a range of training programmes focused on the development of management skills and personal business skills. Our programmes are tailored to meet your specific requirements and we prefer to take a partnership approach. This means we take time to understand your specific business needs and tailor the materials and approach accordingly. This gets more effective results; the 70/20/10 rule teaches us that only 10% of learning occurs in formal training (70% is learned whilst applying skills on the job and 20% through conversation) so it is important the 10% is as relevant as possible to your business.


Our experience of delivering commercial training programmes and higher education management and HR courses in both Edinburgh Napier University, Edinburgh College and Inverness College University of Highlands Islands means you can be assured you will be taught up to date theory! However our industry experience means we understand the practicalities of managing and developing people in a commercial environment.


We can offer short courses to suit; for example a four day management course spaced out over a number of weeks or even months. Alternatively we can offer shorter courses. The exact duration depends on your needs and would be decided after consultation with you.


Training courses can be run on your premises or off site.
