Continued improvement is vital to the success of your organisation.
Perhaps you, your colleagues or your whole organisation are facing an issue and you need to implement a new policy or develop a specific skill. The key is to take action to find a solution – and we are confident that with the resources available in Wexford Chamber Skillnet, have the training and expertise that can provide that solution.
What is in-house training? In-house training is team training delivered specifically for your organisation, at your premises or a suitable venue of your choice.
What makes in-house training great?
- Tailored, bespoke content – With In-house training, course agendas can be adapted and tailored according to your team’s learning requirements. Whether you have a specific training need, or would like one of our existing course programmes delivered directly to you, In-house training is a convenient and practical approach to learning and development.
- Maximum return on your investment – With no hidden costs and all materials included in the price, the In-house option can often be the most cost-effective solution for your team compared with sending the same amount of delegates on the open course.
- Peace of mind – With the Network Manager and Administrator taking care of all logistics for you, commissioning an In-house course can take the stress out of arranging a large scale training event.
- Team building – Taking time out of the office for your team to develop their skills together can be a great team building exercise, and provides a unique opportunity to discuss issues specific to your organisation with our expert trainers.
- Virtual opportunity – with hybrid working, we offer organisations the choice of face-to-face and virtual in-house courses to suit your needs. Flexibility is key!
