Excel expands its geographical coverage to the North of England

Excel’s public courses are held in hotels across the country in carefully chosen venues so our customers have access to comfortable, quiet and convenient locations. We endeavour to deliver our training courses in locations which meet the needs of our customers. To ensure we are providing our customers with a broad range of geographical locations, Excel will be delivering some of our core training courses in Chester and Newcastle from August.

As an experienced training provider, Excel understands the importance of a good learning environment, not just in the classroom but outside too. Suitable facilities, as well as a combination of training strategies and techniques, reliable and experienced facilitators and relevant course materials, all contribute to the success of the learning experience. A good training venue will provide delegates with the space they need to reflect, relax, unwind and socialise after an intensive day, so the physical environment of the training venue can be as important as the dynamics within the classroom for optimising learning.

The following courses will be delivered in the new venues:

As many of our public courses are over the duration of two or more days, delegates have the option of choosing to stay as a residential delegate. We therefore carefully consider the comfort and learning environment for our delegates as we know there are numerous benefits to attending residential training, including:

  • Staying at the course venue provides delegates with the opportunity to extend discussions that time did not allow for during the day, leaving delegates motivated and inspired by each other. They can work together to accomplish evening activities and work, broadening understanding of good practice and confidence.
  • Relaxing in the lounge with peers after an intensive day or sharing experiences across the dinner table can offer the chance to reflect and explore issues in greater depth, whether directly related to the course or common issues experienced in the workplace, enriching delegates’ learning experience.
  • As one of our delegates stated “it’s amazing how well you get to know each other in a very busy week”. Residential training courses not only offer a great networking opportunity but allow delegates to gel as a team, thus giving them more confidence to participate in role plays and group discussions.

However, whilst the benefits of residential courses are many, we also recognise that some delegates are self funding to support a career move and the difference in cost between residential and non-residential is obviously attractive and the reason why they select a particular course near to their residence.
