Design Methodology

The most important part of training is not what individuals learn in formal workshop environments, but rather how they apply this knowledge to their individual roles in everyday situations. Consequently, our training programs are fully customised according to the required shift in knowledge, attitudes and behaviour.

In developing the training programs that we deliver, we seek to apply the four-stage process outlined below. Potential features of these stages are highlighted below the diagram, together with some illustrative benefits of these features.
