Classroom-based courses

We deliver effective classroom-based training.

Brand new ICT equipment and interactive technologies are available to support learning, and development and interaction is encouraged at all times by our friendly and knowledgeable team of tutors.

Questioning techniques are continually used throughout the learning programmes to ensure understanding has taken place and continues to take place.

Training at your premises

Many employers require a customised training and development programme to meet the specific demands of their business, team or employees at their own premises.

At Optimum Training we work with employers to develop tailor-made training programmes to meet your business needs. This includes training delivered at a time and location to suit you to minimise any disruption to the business. It may also involve new programme development to incorporate training elements or learning needs that are specific to your industry.

Vocational training

We have a team of experienced and knowledgeable assessors and verifiers from a wide range of sectors to work, train, encourage and continually motivate individuals.

What better than working in the industry and learning the tools of the trade whilst undergoing the completion of a qualification? Our team of vocational training experts will help guide you through your NVQ qualifications and technical certificates.

We can offer training in customer care, IAG, youth work, community development, business administration and much more.

Free skills health check – Organisational Training Needs Analysis (OTNA)

An Organisational Training Needs Analysis (OTNA) is a review of learning and development needs for staff, volunteers and management board/trustees within your organisation. This can be carried out on a whole organisation or on specific departments.

It considers and evaluates the skills, knowledge and behaviours that employees need, and how to develop them effectively, to reach their full potential. It should ideally be undertaken at 3 levels: organisational, team/departmental and individual level.

Business reviews and Organisation Training Needs Analysis are an essential part of the process of preparing a training and development plan for your organisation.

With this in mind, our consultants will carry out a FREE consultation meeting to determine your individual training needs.

We will then conduct a comprehensive OTNA report. This will be a robust learning and development plan based on research and linked to organisational, team and individual objectives.

Optimum Training can offer a full OTNA service and work with you to produce a tailor-made learner-centred programme of delivery at your premises.
