When employees have attended training they do a presentation for their peers that have not attended to share their learning. For example their trainers from the delivery centres pooled their expertise and designed and rolled out an innovative one day intensive support programme which was a success. Skills Training operate a buddy system ensuring that new staff are matched with an experienced colleague to support with settling in time and development of job role.
