Research Councils UK (RCUK)

Soft Skill and communications training

What we provided

In 2010 we were awarded a 3 year contract to provide the 7 public research councils in the UK with a wide range of soft skill training including all their communications skills training.
We designed and deliver half and full day workshops at basic, intermediate and advanced level to their 12000 employees on the following topics:

  • Minute taking
  • Report writing
  • Chairing meetings
  • Proof reading
  • Communication skills
  • Giving feedback

All courses are subject to a blend of pre and post course work and innovation is brought to the programme through multi-media delivery, use of subject matter experts from an academic background and a rich mix of exercises, projects, role-play and action learning. We were also occasionally able to arrange more specialised courses for RCUK such as speed reading

What was the Outcome

Added value is brought to the project by way of our flexibility to meet the needs of a very diverse and academic audience from a research background who require tailored material to meet their unique requirements.
