Review your people strategy and learning programmes

Using our expertise in skills development, training and delivery we will work with your Human Resource, Talent Management, Learning and Development teams to help develop or review your people plan and talent pipeline.

During this discussion, we always look to help stretch your strategic ambition and position your organisation as a leader in your field. This might entail supporting you to develop your own academies, design qualifications and business improvement programmes, as well as meeting your compliance obligations.

This will help you develop a competitive edge, leading the way in your industry.

Drive staff retention through employee engagement

High employee turnover increases expense and diminishes company morale, which can impact business results.

An effective retention programme isn't just about keeping employees in your organisation, it's about maintaining job performance and productivity.  Training programmes help businesses build a more qualified and better-trained workforce with the right skills for the job. This, in turn, drives staff engagement and loyalty.

Our learning experts have decades of experience in training and have worked in, and consulted for, blue chip organisations such as Barclays, KPMG and Tesco.

Live the values of your CSR

Staff and customer engagement, brand reputation and corporate social responsibility (CSR) are crucial to underpinning business success and growth.

Through careful planning and expert advice we can help you deliver on these goals to strengthen your organisation and stand out from the competition.

Living the values of your CSR will depend on your people and their training.

Our consultants can help you build skills development to embed CSR and help enhance your reputation.

Understand the impact of education policy on your business

Our consultants can work with you and your senior leadership team to help you get to grips with policy and funding changes, understand their impact and develop a strategy to future proof your business.

We have extensive experience complying with and applying regulatory body requirements such as those by the ESFA, Ofsted, Institute for Apprenticeships, Ofqual and more.

You can be assured of an objective and holistic review giving you a complete and accurate picture of where your organisation performs against government regulations along with recommendations for improvement.
