ILM approved training courses

Is it worth two days of your time to grow and sustain your organisation?

We now deliver ILM approved training courses.

Our courses include:

  • The Practical Manager Programme
  • The Practical Sales Manager Programme
  • The Practical Change Management Programme

A Greek philosopher once wrote "change is the only constant in life" and in turbulent times, we are in demand to help organisations make difficult choices, save costs and deliver new services.

We bring a strong track record in business planning and strategic change including mergers and collaborative working that enable organisations to face the future with confidence. We help clients to plan, adapt, change and prove their benefit to society. Our experienced team works with organisations across the country and specialises in building skills and supporting organisations to grow and develop.

The funding environment isn't becoming easier. Preparing to bid for contracts and tenders involves changes to working practices and sharpening skills. Our team works with organisations to develop better relationships with funders and commissioners, identify partners to strengthen the service offer and learn the skills to win and deliver competitive contracts.

We deliver, with our partners Breakthrough, Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) approved training. This is tailored to suit non-profit organisations and draws on our many years of experience providing advice and support to inspire, motivate and open doors to opportunity.

And, in response to demand from voluntary sector clients, we now deliver an introductory Sales for Non-Sales People programme.
