Nostalgia, it has a time and a place.
Are there alternatives to an In-House Training Programme?
Training should have a long-term effect on your organisation. In this article we’re going to help you understand how you can achieve this and even acquire the skills to take the maintenance and coaching of your organisation into your own hands.
For training to be effective and useful it’s important to get training that’s fresh. And when I say fresh, I mean it’s been made with today and tomorrow in mind. Buying training that was made years ago isn’t just a waste of money, but it could hinder your business performance. It should be relevant to the economy of today. Nostalgia, it has a time and a place.
Training like everything else has a shelf life. Training is not something you can keep on the shelf and dust off whenever a new starter arrives, or you feel your team’s performance is dropping. Today’s world moves so quickly, tech is made to be obsolete, trains, planes, and cars are faster. To keep up with this fast-paced world you need the training that will get you there. You need to keep up.
For those of us in the UK we have BREXIT as well as COVID, to recover and learn from. We’ve found a that due to these pivotal changes to our global position as a country and that ultimately your business a lot of resources have not only rapidly become dated but also irrelevant.
Now, we’re not saying this content is completely useless and needs to be added to the training land fill, but it will need refinement and to be brought up to speed with what happened to us in the past couple of years.
We’ll use a car as an analogy as 74% of adults in the UK are licence holders. Think of training in your organisation like the car that carries it along through the years. To maintain your car, you need to ensure regular maintenance and that any advisories are dealt with before they become serious faults that can threaten whether you arrive to your desired destination when travelling down the road.
Additionally, much like a car training and training providers age and will need to be switched out for something that can keep up with modern traffic and keep you safe when doing so.

Our Train the trainer programme equips you or a member of your organisation with the skills to keep your organisation running along smoothly.
Our Train the Trainer (get in touch to find out more) programme can be a cost-effective solution for organisations who aren’t able to embark on a fully fledged training programme.
