Introductory training week

We find that having several participants in a group session together helps you to learn from each other.

Sessions are bespoke and flexible to meet your individual needs. For example, you may have in-depth knowledge of finances and instead, want more focus on marketing. Or, you may need help with governance and compliance, so instead we focus on this.

We also ensure your training covers all the latest up-to-date industry information.

Your introductory five-day training week comprehensively covers:

  • Policies and processes
  • Sector background
