Remote Training

26 January 2007

Training can be difficult and expensive to access. Elizabeth Oxborrow-Cowan, Consultant Archivist, is creating a suite of training courses on general management skills and archives using remote training techniques. For more information about current courses go to

Remote courses, delivered via teleconferencing and web conferencing, have many advantages for you:
  • Significant cost savings - no travel or overnight accommodation costs. Delegates train wherever is convenient for them. All they need is access to a telephone in a quiet location and Internet access if possible (although this is not a pre-requisite).
  • Significant timesavings - staff do not need to travel and can even be available during breaks in training. Courses are timed to fit well within the working day. Evening and weekend training is also available at a premium.
  • Very competitive pricing - all courses are very reasonably priced with 10% discounts for groups of 5 or more.
  • Highly effective training – all courses are very personalised as no more than six people can participate in a course.
  • Unique follow-up support - to ensure delegates get the most out of the course the price includes a unique one-to-one debriefing several weeks later. This works as a great motivator to encourage the delegates to implement what they have learnt. It also gives them the opportunity to really embed their learning by discussing relevant issues. No other course offers such delegate support or great value.
  • On-demand training - Courses can be provided on the dates given or arranged for other dates to create truly on-demand training for your needs.
  • Flexible formats – in addition to remote training I also provide on-site training and a very effective one-to-one training facility.
  • Organization- and employee-specific training – courses can be tailored to meet your individual needs such as a corporate issue or a specific group of people within your organization.

All courses and course material are thoroughly piloted before they are launched. The course material is professionally designed to encourage participation and enable delegates to gauge their own level of understanding. The material also works as a vital aide memoire and action plan for use after the course.
