What our Clients say about us:

“I wanted to comment on the excellent training that was provided. Colin delivered the “Train the Trainer” two day programme and in my opinion it was the most informative training I have done in a long while. I am a Learning and Development Officer currently completing my CIPD qualification and this course enriched my learning in many ways from basic preparation through to planning a training session and how to link it into learning theory. Colin’s delivery was very relaxed; he encouraged participation and his sense of humour, balanced with clear demands and expectations, made for a most enjoyable learning experience. I would recommend this course to anyone who is delivering training at any level.”

“I came on your Train the Trainer course in October. There were a few of us from Kirklees Council who were about to train people on a big IT project. I just wanted to tell you that we are 3 weeks into our training, and we have found your horizontal plans absolutely brilliant. They have really helped us structure the sessions, keep on track and not use loads of notes. I think a few people were a bit sceptical at first about how they were any different to a normal piece of paper, but they have all found them really useful.
So thanks for that, it was probably one of the most useful tips we have picked up from a training course!”
