The Great Training Company

What makes us great?

The Great Training Company is a collection of seasoned training professionals focused on the delivery of high quality training to our clients. We have extensive experience in training / consultancy and management and bring that experience into our courses to provide real business examples and insight to help people learn and implement ideas that add value to your business.

Our approach is simple; to provide a service that enables you to deliver the learning your people need and engage them to implement it in their workplace in a way that represents outstanding value for money. We do this through;

 Diagnosing your objectives.

Every course will include a discussion with your consultant to ensure the objectives are clear and that we can meet them. We do not believe one size fits all.

Agreeing the content.

We will discuss the content of all courses with the course sponsor to ensure its relevance and seek to gain business examples to add value and credibility to the subject matter.

Engaging with your people.

All delegates will receive a joining pack prior to the training including an overview of the objectives and content as well as Reflective skills Assessment Questioner to help them review their present skills and develop their own specific learning objectives.

Capturing outputs.

All outputs produced on courses such as group work and reviews are captured and delivered back to delegates in report format so they have documentation of the specific outputs they developed.


Our evaluation process includes reviews during the event and a post course review to capture both quantative and qualitative reactions to the experience. These results are analysed and provided back to the client in report format.

Post course coaching.

All delegates receive a post course phone coaching session of 30 minutes after the course to provide extra information on topics of interest or challenge that can help the implementation of learning.

How We Add Value

There are three areas to our business;

The delivery of high impact training courses

Our training courses focus on the development of people and are clustered into the areas of;

Foundation Workshops

Short / Punchy/Relevant /Engaging

For some companies their business may not allow for the traditional approach to training courses yet they may need to develop the skills of their people to ensure their continued success. For other companies the longer courses may not suite their people or the company culture. If your people are Trained – Out or would appreciate a different learning approach Performance Workshops can be the way to engage employees in the development process.

Typically half day, performance workshops are designed to provide delegates with the essentials around specific subjects in a concise format that can be implemented directly back into the workplace. Intensive and participative they are ideal for introducing delegates to particular subject areas or reinforcing existing skills with new information.

The advantages of these focused inputs include;

  • Less disruption to the business.
  • More focus for the learner.
  • Cost effective.
  • Can reflect current business activity.
  • High delegate engagement.

These workshops are ideal for setting the scene for future training, and providing specific skills for large populations in specific areas that need to be focused on.

The format of these sessions include a Personal Skills Assessment tool, a handout containing the relevant information and an extensive set of hints and tips that can be implemented quickly. Each session also provides time for delegate Q&A sessions to ensure learning is positioned with relevance to the companies needs.

Whilst Performance Workshops can be created to meet specific client needs from our more extensive courses subject areas include;

  • Working remotely.
  • Focusing on work life balance.
  • Complaint handling.
  • Mind mapping.
  • Focusing on our customer service.
  • Motivating myself.
  • Effective goal setting.
  • Auditing your team.
  • Undertaking an appraisal.
  • Praise and recognition.
  • Coaching others.
  • Managing elements of stress.
  • Approaches for learning.
  • Golden rules for time management
  • Achieving my objectives
  • Managing interruptions

These sessions are also excellent for learning and development days as part of a wider company activity and can be included in team development days and meetings.
