Our Trainers have adopted a range of methods to facilitate accelerated learning and to maximize future application in the workplace. Our approach recognises that trainees must be involved in the learning process and hence we incorporate a high level of interactivity during delivery in order to gauge the transfer of this learning. Interactive sessions such as brain storming, buzz-groups and breakout sessions, role-play and simulated real-life environment compliment training material and promote better retention of course content.

Each session includes an introduction during which set ground rules for engagement and confidentiality, learning objectives, participatory methodologies, and activities. Tailored case studies and knowledge retention tests are incorporated into each training course maximizing the opportunity for participants to learn by doing.

Our trainers are adept at incorporating appropriate examples and information so that trainees will have a relevant frame of reference. Considering that adults learn at different rates, we utilize a variety of teaching methods (accelerated learning, group work, individual exercises, encouraging participation) during delivery allowing us to stay true to the content while maximizing the experience for all learners. Our training personnel are highly skilled at listening effectively and endeavour to give constructive feedback when appropriate.
