Formal Training Courses

These traditionally involve experts passing on the knowledge or theory underpinning the application of skills. This is usually done in a supportive group environment away from the workplace, allowing leeway to experiment and learning from mistakes.

Getting best value

Your line manager should:

  • Confirm your development needs are best met by a training course
  • Check that the content is appropriate
  • Brief you prior to attendance
  • Provide opportunities for you to apply your new knowledge subsequently
  • Take steps to embed your learning at your workplace
