Who Are We?

‘We intuitively understand the needs of each individual and respond in a creative and dynamic way’.

At Training by Design we believe that training is very personal business so everything we do is tailored to meet individual needs. Our greatest satisfaction is to see people touched by training and watch their attitudes change and see them grow in confidence.

That is what good training is all about.

Our business is all about impacting positively on people’s working lives by nurturing talent and supporting development in a fresh and innovative way.

Training should never be staid or boring, nor should it be ‘off the shelf’. All of our programmes are ‘brain friendly’ and interactive, and we include ‘real play’ rather than ‘role play’ sessions so that lessons are based on real life experiences.

As our name suggests, everything we do is by design and we deliver our programmes with passion and interest.
