Our style of classroom training delivery is friendly, flexible and approachable. A variety of delivery styles and media are used including demonstrations, scenario-based hands-on exercises and sophisticated questioning techniques, with the emphasis on maximising information retention and investment in learning.

 

Each session is treated as unique with the pace and pitch being influenced by the participants on the day, although a core of pre-planned, structured content remains at the heart of the session. 

 

We believe participation is key to the learning process and as such, SmartStyle trainers utilise sophisticated facilitation techniques to ensure participation from all and encourage learners to think through processes themselves, underpinning knowledge gained, and checking understanding.

  Following migration to Office 2007 , are you now looking for a targeted training solution which helps to ensure users work more efficiently...  
 

SmartStyle developed an IT competency framework, for a regional housing association which uses Microsoft Office 2007. Users were assessed against the framework using Fiz-assist, our online skills gap analysis tool, and targeted workshops were developed and delivered to fill gaps identified by the analysis.

 

The organisation employs approximately 120 PC users who, as a group, had received very little formal training to develop IT skills. 

 

The aim was to improve overall IT capabilities, maximise the investment the business has made in information technology, at the same time as providing support and development opportunities to its people. The organisation needed to stretch its budget and ensure training was relevant for each individual and that people were only trained on the functionality within the applications used for their job.  Training needed to be targeted at an individual level.

 

The competency framework, skills analysis and training were delivered over a 12 month period. Click here for further information.

  Our new bite sized IT workshops can help to maximise training budgets, targeting the skills your employees actually need.  
 

Perfect for organisations who value flexibility and prefer to adopt a ‘mix and match’ approach to learning.  Content targets specific skills gaps and training days can be tailored to include any combination of modules.

 

Your training can be delivered to either the same or different groups of delegates throughout the day, maximising the number of people your training budget will accommodate. The modules themselves are half a day in duration.  This approach works superbly when delivered in conjunction with Fiz-assist, SmartStyle’s online skills gap analysis tool.
