Education & Schools Portfolio

Core Training consultants have worked with some of the world's leading organisations. Their development of staff up to strategic levels led them to research how different generations could bring different skills to the workplace.

It was this that brought the development of a portfolio of programmes for schools. If Core Training understands the skills required for business in the current day and what it takes to succeed, then why shouldn't we be passing these skills on to our students - the workforce of tomorrow? Core Training believes that students should be at the cutting edge of business development in order to develop the right attitudes and skills necessary for business. As well as business skills we also provide inspirational sessions for students that allow them to reflect on conditioning, build positive self belief and ultimately raise their aspirations.

"Alison has a wealth of talent, experience and skills that she puts into practice with groups and individuals in a caring and clear way. Her work with young people is delivered in a professional, friendly manner and all of the participants on the courses she has run for me have said how brilliant they have found the training and workshops."
Sue Blakemore, Aim Higher, Newcastle City Council.

Core Training also provide training programmes for teachers and lecturers. Our programmes are based on our expertise of transformational development. The programmes can not only benefit individual's own work lives but also can support the development of business skills in their students.

Our consultants are inspirational in that they use their practical experiences of transforming people and businesses when working with students and teachers.

"Alison organised a Young People's Consultation for disabled young people at Alnwick Garden on behalf of DCATCH. Throughout the whole process Alison was very approachable and adaptable and in discussion with ourselves and the Head Teacher produced an enjoyable day for the young people and adults who attended. It was great fun and helped to give the young people a voice."
Jackie Beeley, DCATCH Northumberland.

"The WEEN Team have had the pleasure of working with Alison and her colleagues for the past two years. Alison has supported the WEEN team when it was in its infancy to develop resources and strategies. Alison has also worked with many of the Wansbeck primary and secondary schools on enterprise projects as a business mentor and the students who have partaken in these projects have thrived in developing their enterprise skills, qualities and attributes under her guidance. Alison is not only an inspirational role model for young people but she has all the qualities which make young people blossom and aspire to reach their full potential such as a friendly warm and outgoing nature. Alison also has the essential knowledge and experience which engages the young people fully in all of the enterprise activities they do with Alison."
