Self-study Training

Why self-study?

Training budgets have been under pressure for years, but new and existing staff still need to develop their communication skills if they are to be effective in the workplace. Whether you are one person looking to improve your writing skills, or need to train several hundred people, self-study could be the answer.

If staff are scattered over several locations or work unsociable hours it may be difficult to participate in face-to-face training. With self-study courses you study when it suits you and at your own pace.


Valid for a whole year, you can either buy one licence per person or bulk licences. Please ask for details.
