BLENDED APPROACH

Programme Structure

This programme has been designed in a way that will maximise the performance of each learner. Learning the theory of a topic is great but it’s what the learner does to embed the learning and actually use it, that matters most.

All learning is reinforced with ongoing coaching, online resources and off-the-job activity to bring it all to life.

Each part of the programme supports the learner to apply their knowledge and skills via INTENT – IMPLEMENT – IMPACT.

  • What did they plan to change?
  • What did they change and how?
  • What impact did it make?
