Open Courses  


Unlocking Potential . . . 

For this page I need to:

  • Describe what open courses are
  • copy the completed course descriptions from the main course page
  • Don't bother with description of venue but maybe get some photos up when possible
  • link to each page on eventsframe

OPEN COURSES


Welcome to my list of open courses, i.e. courses which individuals can join.


Open courses are ideal:

If you want to try a course before running a tailored in house programme for your company.

For companies who want to send one or two members of staff for training, perhaps because the company already had a whole day of staff training and these staff members are new or maybe missed it.

For people taking responsibility for their own self-development and who enjoy improving their skills.


Here are the days that I currently have planned. If you’re not sure if you’re ready I'd still suggest that you GRAB YOUR PLACE WHILE IT’S THERE.  I can’t guarantee that there will be same courses running in 6 months or a year’s time, you just never know plus it's better value when you buy your place at the early bird 20% discount.


How An Open Course Runs

All of the days start at 9.30am which gives everyone time to travel and arrive safely. We get straight down to the training and have We will also have two short breaks for tea and coffee in the morning and mid afternoon. I'll wrap things up at 4.45pm.


I provide all of the training materials so you don't need to bring anything other than a pen and a smile. Sound good?


Venues and Travel

In Redhill our training room is xxx and situated above West Central, the best cafe in town who provide a delicious lunch of your choice! 

In London I use a range of venues so please take a look at the course booking page for more detail.


Redhill railway station has excellent connections to London Bridge, Victoria, Charing Cross, Brighton and Guildford. Our venue, West Central, is a three minute walk from Redhill station.


If you're driving then Redhill is well served by the M25, the M23 and plenty of A roads running north to south and east to west. Click here to see the numerous parking options, all just a few minutes walk away.


Open Course Pricing Structure

I've already mentioned that there is a discounted price for booking early but I also offer 20% discounts when you book more than one person. The discounts are automatically applied during the checkout process (it's clever software!). This offer works in conjunction with the early bird discount which makes it even cheaper!


How To Book Your Place

When you've decided which course you'd like to go on simply click the big blue 'Book This Open Course' button in the course description and you'll be taken to the registration process. It's an easy process, just like booking a cinema ticket or buying something from Amazon.
