Monitoring Effectiveness

We strongly believe that there is little point in delivering training that is not both effective and delivers sustainable results. All participants fill out a pre-course questionnaire and are then re-assessed at intervals to monitor the ongoing impact and effectiveness of the training.

The anonymised results of all monitoring and feedback are shared with the organisations who book our training.
