In-House Training

Behind every great college is an informed and well-trained workforce.

AoC Services can provide you with in-house training from the sector’s leading experts.

How does in-house training work?

The process begins and ends with you. The critical benefit of in-house training is the ability to design programmes that address your specific situation. We’ll work with you to create a bespoke training programme led by a team of experts selected from inside AoC and beyond.

All of our programmes can be delivered online using Zoom training.

We can create programmes for individuals, small teams or large groups. We’ll appoint a designated account manager to work with you. The key appeal of in-house training is the cost. As the training takes place at your premises or online, the cost per delegate is minimised to provide maximum return on investment.

What have our previous clients said?

‘We commissioned AoC Services to run and facilitate a leadership programme for middle managers. The sessions that Jon facilitated were a perfect blend of academic theory, storytelling and conceptual frameworks, combined with group work and exercises. These enabled delegates to put into practice, in a safe place, the concepts discussed and apply them to ‘live’ topics and areas of transformation that were required at the time.

The programme evaluations indicated such success that we invited Jon back to HSDC to run a second cohort and a version of the programme with more senior managers.’
Anna Rowen, Strategic Business Partner, HSDC

‘From the outset, the team at the end of the phone were friendly, positive and professional. They were effective in listening to our requirements, as well as quickly understanding our specific development needs.  Working with the AoC’s Training & Development team proved to be simple and easy. The training was well prepared, engaging and challenging. All in all, the process was delivered on-time and was great value for money.’
City of Westminster College

‘The session helped to develop ideas I had been mulling over in recent months, the discussions with other professionals focused the ideas and led to a plan of action for implementation.’
Middlesbrough College

‘Kevin made sure that he fully understood the expectations of the college in relation to the training, and he developed the materials accordingly.  The day was interactive, fun and most of all informative and developmental.  We finished the day with a clearer understanding of how to apply the new EIF, along with a set of priorities for future development.’
Kelvin Nash, Principal and CEO, Kendal College
