CPD – Bespoke Personnel Development Courses

Trainer Training

Level 3 Delivering Training (RQF)

Before anyone can teach effectively they must understand how individuals learn. In all areas of life, we benefit from receiving knowledge or coaching from those with a skill to pass on, or from those experienced in a trade or discipline. Unfortunately, it is sometimes assumed that those who have the skill and experience also have the ability and confidence to impart this information to others.

HSH trainer training courses are delivered with the emphasis on the practices of effective learning and communication and will be useful for anyone with an interest in how people can be encouraged to learn from an early age and throughout life or understand how and why they may have limited their learning abilities.

Customer Service

Level 2 Customer Service

Customer service can make or break a business, yet it is often an area of training which is overlooked or deemed not necessary for the job role. Customer service is a vital skill for anyone making direct contact with the customer whether face to face (including a delivery driver) or on the telephone taking orders or dealing with customer issues.

Bespoke courses

These courses can be delivered one-to-one or as a group, in-house or at our training centre. The sessions can be tailored to promote the necessary skills to develop efficient personnel and effective teams with content adjusted to suit the specific requirements of you or your business.

An HSH certificate will be received by each delegate as evidence of learning or Continued Professional Development (CPD).
