Training Courses

ValueAdding Learning courses and seminars are renowned for their quality and easy practical application. This comes from our approach to training and skills transfer. Our tutors are our consultants who have the skills, knowledge and experience from actually working in real life delivering and achieving in the subject area of the training course.

We provide our course notes electronically and on paper on the day so that delegates can make their own notes and personalise the key issues for themselves. We believe that this is essential for each delegate to be able to record their own personal learning points on a slide-by-slide basis for them to get the most from the training and help them implement the benefits in their day-to-day job. We also provide, where applicable, worked examples and Case Studies.

We appreciate that organisations are under significant budgetary constraints and we therefore offer discounts on our courses depending on your exact requirements and arrangements, so please speak to us.

Bespoke courses

Some delegates find that our standard courses do not offer an exact match with their training needs. Consequently, we also offer bespoke courses either using standard course materials or developed specifically to met your needs.

The costs of such training will depend on a number of factors, such as location, preparation time and the number of delegates. A number of councils who have organised bespoke courses for their staff have also invited staff from surrounding authorities in order to ensure the affordability of the event.
