Build a Skilled Workforce with One-to-One Coaching

Have you previously attended one of Understanding ModernGov’s training courses and left the day wanting more? Or perhaps you’re responsible for learning and development within your organisation and are seeking a flexible and ongoing solution to your staff’s professional development needs?

For many of our delegates and clients, the outstanding feedback they provide after attending our courses is largely due to the interactive nature of our training, including personalised support and guidance from our trainers throughout the day.

So what if you could access this one-to-one support from an expert on an ongoing basis, as and when you need it?

Having worked with organisations and individuals across the public sector for over ten years on both our open access courses and bespoke In-House training, here at Understanding ModernGov we regularly receive requests for personalised, one-to-one support from our trainers.

For this reason, we are delighted to announce we are now expanding our training offerings to include one-to-one coaching sessions. 

So what is coaching and how can it benefit me?

Increasingly popular within the public sector as a flexible, long-term learning and development solution, coaching is no longer reserved just for the most senior staff within an organisation.

Staff at all levels can benefit from coaching in a variety of areas, and in turn this professional support at work can help your employees feel valued and more confident to excel in their role. Whether it’s to bring a new starter up to speed, to help members of staff complete a specific project, or simply to update and refresh key skills for your workforce, coaching has a variety of benefits:

  • Ongoing support – As organisational priorities shift and new challenges develop within your team, coaching is a great way to respond to changes and ensure your staff are equipped with the skills and knowledge to tackle new projects.
  • Flexibility – Whether you require just a few hours or a longer series of sessions, coaching is highly flexible and can be arranged by the hour to fit around your schedule.
  • Bespoke learning experience – Have a specific skill you’d like to learn, or looking to build on and improve your existing skills? The one-to-one nature of coaching means your personal development is our end goal, and your learning experience will be completely tailored to your objectives. Just let us know the skills you’d like to learn, and we’ll work with you to achieve it.
