In-house training: CPD created for you

Sending individual staff members across the country to attend CPD training can be difficult, time-consuming and expensive.

In-house training offers professional development created to suit you and your team best.

Bespoke events are an excellent way to improve the knowledge, skills and performance of your team at the same time and make the most out of your CPD budget.

Because every training event is unique, costs for commissioned events can vary.

To help you with your budgeting and financial planning, please find below estimates for some of the options.
