Management courses
Specific courses in the areas listed below can be programmed for small, closed groups of trainees.  These are not language courses.  They each take the form of a focused presentation and interactive workshop, where course participants will have the opportunity to discuss and try out new ideas and management techniques.  Each course is designed to take place over one full day. 

One-day training programmes that address a particular management theme are an excellent way of consolidating learning into a short timeframe, while at the same time allowing participants to come away with a set of tools and techniques that can be readily applied immediately in the workplace.

If required, we can also provide a series of inter-connecting modules spanning several months – programmed to fit into your own working routine.

Please ask for a quotation and we will be delighted to build a course that is tailor-made to your requirements.  Please note that we can run these courses at our own custom-built training centre or on site at your company premises.
