Tailored Training for a Perfect Fit 

We know that organisations rely on their HR and Learning and Development professionals to identify solutions which fit the bill for their current and future needs.   At Challenge we pride ourselves on being a “helping hand” in asking the right questions to get to the heart of the learning needs and to create a truly bespoke approach with clear objectives.

We offer a full range of leadership and management related topics linking “people, performance and profit”.   

Free Training Needs Analysis.   
At Challenge we will work with you, starting from scratch and establishing the priorities for the business and creating a clear set of objectives for the training and development needs.   We know how important solutions are, and the ability to measure the return on investment.    From group training to one to ones we can ensure every single requirement is catered for.  Where the objectives fit, we can accredit training to ILM standards, leading to recognised qualifications being achieved whilst delivering a bespoke, organisational led programme.

Organisational Fit
We build in your own procedures, processes and imagery to ensure that the training relates directly to the workplace.  Learning is directly relevant and immediately applicable to the work based situation.    Case studies and real life examples are discussed with you and used as part of the training.    Delegates are “walked through” your own business processes and documentation, with quizzes being created around organisational policies to inform the learning.

Psychometrics :
We can offer psychometric tools to help individuals to understand what motivates them and how they work best with others.   Each person has a unique way in which they see the world and how they interact with others, DISC profiling (or chosen tool) offers a common language for teams and individuals to discuss how they can best work with their colleagues to enhance performance for themselves
and others, and drive up performance in the business. Find out more about Psychometrics

The Journey

  1. Training Needs & Background
    We will establish what has led you to make an enquiry to a training provider, and use our expertise to help chart a path to bring about a solution.   We will consider the culture of the organisation, your systems and processes and how these impact upon the training need at hand.  Once we believe we have sufficient information we will create for you a fully detailed and costed proposal.
  2. Proposal – completely free of charge and with no obligation
    Our proposals are extremely detailed, so you know precisely what you are getting.  They contain sections such as Background; Our understanding; Our Approach; Proposed Content; Delivery Style etc.  It also contains a “What we would need from you” section.  This is a list of documentation such as policies and internal documentation we would need to ensure that the training packs are directly relevant to your business, and that the skills are immediately transferable into the workplace.  
  3. Costs – no hidden extras
    We quote a day rate which includes design for most of our bespoke training.   This means you can budget with confidence in the knowledge that there won’t be any unwelcome surprises.

Where and when we deliver – face to face or online “live” training.

Our priority is ensuring that the training meets the business needs.   We deliver at a a time and a place to suit you, either face to face through out the UK and Southern Ireland, or online using interactive “live training”.   A tutor is present at all times if we are training online and we will use a variety of techniques to ensure that (whatever the medium), the training is participative and interactive.

Style of delivery

We have a flair for developing programmes which encourage participation and interaction at every stage, with quizzes, group working and fun activities (with a clear focus towards the objectives) being built into the training sessions.   Whether online or face to face you can be sure the training will be interactive and engaging whilst being directly relevant to the learning objectives.
