Working with Organisations

Bespoke Learning for Workplace Performance

With over 25 years’ experience of working with many different organisations our Work Based Learning approach supports individuals, teams and organisations to learn through and for work.

We work with organisations as facilitative partners rather than as consultants ‘brought in’ for short term interventions. We work alongside partners, valuing your expertise as well as sharing ours, supporting individual and organisational learning, building capacity and creating sustainability.

You will find us genuinely collaborative, supportive and focused on outcomes. We will work with you to understand and shape your objectives, taking account of the challenges and constraints, and co-design programmes to meet specific outcomes; usually a mix of learning outcomes and business outcomes. A key strength is our ability to integrate learning with practice, developing people, practice and organisational performance at the same time.

Our approach is built around practice and action, informed by theory (not the other way round!). We provide the rigour and quality associated with a top UK University in a way which best meets the needs of our partners. A distinctive strength is the design of bespoke programmes with University accreditation. You are assured of relevance and the quality associated with a top University; your staff develop their practice and gain highly valued qualifications.
