Organisations are waking up to the fact that a training session on its own won’t work. It is what participants do with the learning, which makes the difference and gets results.
So it is vital to work with a provider who understands the importance of follow up after a learning event and who will work with you to ensure skills are used back in the workplace.

4. How do you cater for different learning styles?
5. How do you ensure skills from training/coaching are used back in the workplace?
