Our Unique Approach

NVQ in Advice and GuidanceOur advice and guidance courses utilise an experiential learning methodology. The “involve me and I will understand‘ principle is the one we follow. All our courses are designed to offer hands-on experience by doing and not just listening – less chalk and talk as with more traditional courses. We believe that this action based approach, through experiential learning programmes, is the most productive in terms of retention of learning and the beneficial transfer of that learning to your workplace.
Our courses are designed so as to have relevance to your workplace with key lessons being drawn out by skilful review, reflection and facilitation. From this review comes participant driven self-learning. The underlying objective is for this learning to be taken back to the workplace for a real return on your investment. We aim to place the learning in the context and day to day reality of each learner’s role. We focus on your individual learning needs which then dictate the direction of each individual programme. Our expertise lies in the design, development and evaluation of Advice and Guidance diplomas.

Course Delivery Options

We believe that learning should be individual to every person so we can offer a fully bespoke learning programme to suit you. Options can include the group and one to one learning approaches.
