Bespoke Training

With our extensive experience in the transport planning sector, we have the technical knowledge to tailor our current courses or create new ones to suit your organisation’s needs. Whether you are located in the UK or abroad, we would be happy to work with you to develop and deliver a training programme that is right for you. 

 

Contact us today to discuss your specific training needs.


In-House Training

We are aware of the need to secure maximum benefit from training budgets, but at the same time ensure that employees have the correct skills to help organisations meet their business and public obligations. Time and financial pressures mean that this cannot always be achieved, especially if there are large numbers of employees involved.  In-house training can offer employers a very cost effective approach to training groups of between 10 and 25 employees in introductory methods and skills, and provide an update on new or emerging techniques and legislation.  We have developed a range of technical courses that are likely to appeal to newer engineers, planners and technicians including those who have been recruited from a non-technical background. All of our one and two day courses can be offered as in-house training programmes. We are also happy to tailor our current courses or develop new courses to suit your organisation’s individual training needs and goals.

 

International Training

We work with a vast network of trainers and educational specialists in the design and delivery of courses overseas and draw on specialist consultants, academics and practitioners working in local and central government and the private sector. Like all of our courses, we tailor our programmes abroad to meet specific training needs and skill gaps, taking into account the unique requirements of each organisation.
