Learner Support

Throughout the qualification you will have access to a dedicated Performance Coach who will be your Tutor/ Assessor throughout the programme, providing you with all the support and guidance you need. Our highly supportive approach sets us apart from our competitors and enables us to tailor the programme around your individual needs.

Working one-to-one with a Performance Coach and reviewing what you do and how you do it really makes a difference. By working smarter, you save yourself time, streamline routine processes and find solutions to current and on-going problems. Some of the problems our clients have addressed recently include: managing an under-performing team member; managing their work load and creating time to work on key projects; and spending too much time on ‘fire-fighting’ activities.

The way you work with your Performance Coach involves working on the things that are causing you the most problems and pain. We do not use simulations or hypothetical scenarios to help you achieve your qualification – we use live, real-time problems that you are facing and support you to make improvements and move forward.

We use the qualification as a framework to embed the learning and development into the workplace in order to maximise the impact on performance.
