Learning & Development
Drawing on experience of leading Learning and Development in a range of different organisations and sectors, we can assist clients through a range of learning and development services.
Learning Needs Analysis
We provide support to help organisations and individuals effectively review their learning and development requirements to support individual, team and organisational development. Learning Needs Analysis evaluates skills, knowledge and behaviours to identify where demands are being met and to identify gaps. Following Learning Needs Analysis, plans can be developed for both individuals and teams to ensure that resources, including time are used to maximum advantage.
Design and delivery
At Higher Training we understand the need to provide learning and development interventions for both groups and individuals which create a positive mental attitude and leave learners with the will, skill and confidence to apply their learning. We include practical examples, providing the opportunity to use new skills in a safe environment and obtain positive, constructive feedback.
When working with groups we draw upon the latest thinking and developments using proven techniques including world and knowledge cafes, action learning, accelerated learning and appreciative inquiry to facilitate and support exploration.
Evaluation of training
Evaluation ensures that learning and development activities remain relevant, effective and have a measurable impact on performance. Using the services of Higher Training Limited can provide an impartial and objective review of interventions.
