The process step by step:

Virtual Adviser / Online Diagnostic

5. Your detailed report will be emailed to you and downloadable as a pdf. The report aims to highlight your business strengths and areas where you could develop

Complimentary consultancy to meet your bespoke learning and development needs

6. A Skills Adviser will call you to discuss your interests and priorities around how to develop your business further via learning new skills, training, coaching and development opportunities available. It is entirely bespoke, so the training can be a business function or a sector/industry specific course
7. The impartial Skills Adviser can research suitable skills providers to meet your needs and present you with a tailored range of options, written within a skills development plan
8. You will then need to make a decision about your preferred choice
9. The skills adviser will then refer you (and the skills development plan) to the chosen trainer/coach or learning provider
10. You can then go ahead with the booking and payment for the learning, training or coaching

Your £150
