Why was Platform 4 Training established?
Over many years, Jackie has gained a great deal of experience in delivering ‘open', generic training programmes to groups of individuals with varying experience and skill levels. Without follow up or evaluation of training, then delegates, managers and the organisation are sometimes unable to assess the value of the training provided or identify performance improvements.
With a strong desire to more effectively transport the learning back to the workplace, Jackie now works closely with employees and employers to accurately identify specific training needs, to fully understand these in line with the business requirements and corporate objectives. The result is the design of a bespoke product, which is ‘best fit' for each situation.
Jackie believes her strengths lie in taking subject knowledge, information and theory, and making it real, ‘live’ and current to enable the delegates to engage with the course and most importantly to create positive change by relating it back to the workplace.
She is passionate about improved performance and behaviour change following training. The investment in training should bring these results and not just be a tick in a box.
What training and development initiatives does Platform 4 Training offer?
We specialise in designing, delivering and evaluating ‘in-house' training initiatives. View these details on both the course outlines page and consultancy page.
Other services include:
- Training needs analysis
- Developing Training Plans and Strategies
- Training Evaluation
- Development Centres
- Personal Development Planning
As well as this, Jackie is able to offer consultancy and one-to-one coaching in areas such as:
- Dealing with poor performance
- Handing team conflicts
- Management development
What is the duration of the training initiatives?
Flexibility is the key word for training delivery. The choice made depends upon the type of training required, the number of delegates to undergo the training, and the ongoing business needs during the training sessions.
Duration can vary as follows:
- Modules with or without course work between modules
- Short two or three hour sessions
- Half days
- Full days
Where does Platform 4 Training deliver its training?
Currently, training is delivered in the UK and offshore locations of Jersey and Guernsey.
What is the future of Platform 4 Training?
Jackie has experienced an increasing demand for management development programmes with an option for certification. The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) has Endorsed her 8 Day Management Development Programme which includes a short assignment at the end and successful delegates receive an ILM Pass Certificate. The programme can also be run with less modules and not certificated if preferred.
With a great awareness that this fast moving and ever changing market place, Platform 4 Training will continue to learn, adapt and create new solutions to meet new business requirements.
