The Training Centre is the Training division of Market Street Consultants, an organisation delivering a vast range of Training Courses, including Cybersecurity, Project Management and Risk Management. Since it's inception in 2007, the business has grown from it's initial roots in the UK and Ireland, out to and including Europe, the Middle East and now Africa.
Our Training staff and support team has grown to some 1500 in number, with a view on Quality, foremost in our minds. Each of our permanent and affiliate Training staff has undergone extensive vetting, assessment and ongoing training to ensure they deliver the best experience for our delegates. All have a minimum of 15 years experience in their chosen field, with a wealth of experience not just within the workplace, but in delivering training that engages, motivates and develops our delegates. In the last year alone, our training staff have delivered over 5500 training days in Cybersecurity, IT Governance, Data Protection, Risk Management, Healthcare Governance and Securities and Investment Certification, with a focus not just on imparting knowledge, but on helping our delegates understand the application of this knowledge, allowing them to implement their learning effectively.
The Training Centre continues to add courses which we feel address either a Skills Gap or even an immediate need for action. Our response to Covid-19 was to add a free Pandemic preparedness course from PECB and add Business Continuity, Incident management and Resilience based courses. We constantly aim to add new courses which deliver value, growing our portfolio and marketing the benefits they bring to both individual and Corporate clients. This is with the aim of becoming the "go to" partner for our clients. In Q4 2020, we will be adding some new Categories, to include Leadership & Management, Asset Management and Coaching & Mentoring. These courses are intrinsically linked with what we do - help people grow and develop their careers.
You're absolutely right, there are loads of Training companies out there, all with varying costs, varying capabilities. Some are Accredited to deliver their courses, others are not. For those who are not, this results in a poor outcome for course attendees.
"It's all about the Quality, really" - a phrase which is very much in our mindset. We only deliver Accredited training courses that lead to Certification. We do not develop our own materials. We only use approved materials, directly from the Course Administrators. This ensures we deliver the correct Quality, the most relevant and up to date materials - and all at the best price possible.
With a focus on our core business delivery goals - technology-driven, skills-centred and quality focussed - we can deliver training opportunities that deliver success, in formats that suit our growing client base.
For too long, training has been a case of delivery, rote learning and certification, with no real engagement from trainees. The net result of this is that employees have ticked the boxes, but haven’t retained the necessary knowledge, or considered its application. At The Training Centre, we deliver our Courses in a blended learning format, a technique which is now used in modern-day classrooms and universities across the country. Blended learning consists of a combination of face-to-face training, team exercises, mini-tests and discussion which delivers diversity and therefore increases engagement and motivation. By having a face-to-face element, there is an instructional factor to training, with the discussion sections allowing for autonomy, gamification and the opportunity for learners to demonstrate that they have understood, rather than simply learnt. It is a myth that training needs to be boring; no matter the subject, we deliver courses that genuinely engage, and our trainees perform better on the courses themselves, and later in the workplace, as a result of our dynamic, varied, blended approach.
As an ISO 9001 certified company, we are dedicated to the continuous development and improvement of our courses and their delivery. The cornerstone of this is client feedback. We value all kinds of feedback from our trainees, and we spend a great deal of time investigating how this feedback can lead to tangible enhancements to our offerings at The Training Centre.
Making Training Accessible
We understand that the two most significant barriers to training are time and money. With blended programmes, the short duration of the courses limits time away from the office. On the financial side of things, we offer Direct Debit payment for all our courses, so you can spread the cost over a 6 or 12-month period. For courses up to and including £1200 (or €1500), we offer 6-month payment plans, with 12-month plans available for all other courses. These plans are all provided at 0% interest, and we don’t carry our credit checks, so your rating will not be harmed by applying for this. This also means we never turn anyone away for finance, no matter your credit history.
