Customised Training

We can work with a professional researcher to develop surveys which are sent out to the staff and volunteers or an organisation to identify risks, challenges, gaps, training needs, things that work well or things requiring improvement.  The survey responses are analysed and presented back to the organisation whereby an improvement strategy is developed and implemented appropriately.

The training package is adapted to meet the identified learning needs.
