Delivery Options

Live virtual classroom

This is our standard method of delivery. Our live virtual training is an excellent option for individuals that work remotely or have responsibilities that make it difficult for them to attend a face-to-face training. It also reduces the time away from work.

Face to face learning

Face-to-face learning offers a chance for people to learn together and discuss current workplace issues. Learning together boosts teamwork and engagement.

Hybrid/ blended learning

Typically a mixture of online learning, work-based learning and face-to-face or virtual sessions. Blended learning typically includes classroom sessions, small group activities and individual coaching. A blended learning approach gives you complete flexibility over delivery options and can reinforce and embed your key messages.
