Our Tailor made Training Cycle
From smaller skills gaps through to large corporate training requirements, CED School of
Business is able to provide in-house training that meets your team’s needs.
We will work with you to establish your precise training and development requirements, whether it is for eight people or 80.
The in-house training of CED School of Business is delivered by expert trainers and can be chosen, or created, from our wide-ranging open courses, accredited programmes, e-learning modules and our other onsite solutions.
For larger scale corporate training for departments or organisations, our approach comprises seven tried and tested stages, from objective setting through design and piloting to roll out.
Stage One – Establish objectives and requirements
To understand our clients’ needs and to work with them closely, we recommend the establishment of a steering group which should include key stakeholders from the client and the CED School of Business team. This group would have responsibility for confirming requirements, quality review and final approval.
Stage Two – Conduct Training Needs Analysis (TNA)
To fully understand the needs of the identified managers across the organisation, a Training Needs Analysis (TNA) is recommended with the different stakeholder groups – senior managers, chief executive, finance director and potential delegates, to gather information for the programme.
Stage Three – High-level design
Agree the learning objectives and outcomes for the training programme with the steering group. Elements include blended learning, classroom delivery online, technical documentation, organisation specific policies that need to be incorporated, modular or block delivery and testing.
Stage Four – Detailed design
Following stage three, this stage will provide further, more detailed design of the training programme to include the topic areas to be covered, their order, timing and optimal learning methods and how the material will be delivered, including the blend of presentation, discussion, examples and case studies.
Stage Five – Material development
At this stage we will work more closely with key stakeholders to ensure that any case studies, management reports and working practices, business case templates and tools and practical exercises are relevant to the organisation and, where possible, the delegates themselves.
Stage Six – Full roll-out, evaluation and continuous improvement
By now, the programme would be fully tailored to the organisation and will support the transfer of the skills and knowledge back into the workplace. In addition to the immediate evaluation of training following attendance on the course/programme, we would also suggest delegates complete an evaluation after a longer agreed period of time. This will help identify improvements in knowledge with line manager assessment and acceptance if required.
