Our Engagement Strategy
One of the key strategies for the institute is to ensure that we always measure up and deliver to our stakeholders and client’s needs. As such we engage a unique process that guides all concerned towards a robust end state
This is where we develop your product we will aim to understand the needs by:Asking questions based around why they feel they need a training program? What issues they may have faced which has provoked this need? What has worked and not worked in the past! The overall expectations from the training and any limitations including, time, resource, budget! Once this information has been gathered we will be then in a position to recommend either ‘off the shelf’ or a ‘bespoke’ program.
This is where we help the transition of the desired product move into a living program, we aim to make this part seamless through both parties by understanding each other responsibilities, which means we will provide a calendar of your training program including delegate allocation once we agree on, including number of delegates, operational schedules, types of delegates, i.e. nationality and language issues and finally the timeline from start to completion.
This is where we put all of the planning into practice. We aim to provide all delegates with a seamless and professional experience from entering the program to exiting the program, we will ensure that we deliver in accordance to the original objectives and aims ensuring all learners have an opportunity to interact and use relevant resources where needed and that all delegates have access to learning materials in different languages if required. After delivery we will also initiate a debriefing session, this debriefing will include delegate feedback and feedback from the course tutor.
Our aim here is to firstly ensure that the objectives of the program have been met, secondly to expose and explore any gaps, which could mean be that some delegates require further training, or follow up assessments. We want to ensure that the program is becoming a benefit to the client, for example, when will follow up assessments be made, how long will these take and when does the client get the results! Can the training feedback be used as a performance management tool or part of it and does the feedback initiate further training or is a new program to be explored and designed.
