Graduate Training Program in Derbyshire

The graduate training program in Derbyshire can be any length (12 - 18 months for example), held at your place of work (virtual options available) and there are usually up to 12 graduates/learners per session. The sessions generally run from 09:30 - 16:30 but, like the content, this is flexible (we can start from 06:30) contact our director of learning for details

The Graduate Training Program in Derbyshire

We advise the following sessions take place before the program starts

  • A training day for the graduate’s mentors
  • A getting the best out of a mentoring program for the graduates
  • An induction and team building day for the mentors and the graduates (the mentors join in at lunch) - the later two are usually on the same day

Our bespoke approach to training ensures that each session represent your vision, ethos and core values where necessary and there’s a great deal of time spent on making sure the synergy and between session activities are second to none

An example program looks like:

  • Emotional intelligence and fitting in
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Project and stakeholder management
  • Effective time management
  • Managing stress and building resilience
  • Presentation skills (this and the one below are held consecutively) 
  • Speaking with confidence
  • Creativity and innovation
  • Decision making, problem solving and critical analysis
  • Personal impact and effectiveness
  • Self motivation and meeting skills
  • Working within teams
  • Culture and working within a changing environment
  • Mentoring skills
  • Program review and presentations

As the creativity and innovation session is the about the halfway point in the graduate training program some clients make it a two-day event away from the office.

The team arrive at the hotel on say a Tuesday evening. On the Wednesday they spend the day in the Peak District hiking in some amazing countryside bonding as a group and being challenged in unfamiliar territory with a qualified hill and moorland leader/guide. It doesn’t have to be the Peak District either, North Wales is another popular choice. During the day on the hill we discuss resilience, positivity, wellbeing and mental health

On the Wednesday evening, after the hike, everyone meets up for a meal in the pub and awards are presented for the work they have done so far. On the following day we run the Creativity and Innovation course in the pub/hotel’s conference room

It’s a great couple of days and certainly promotes teamwork and unity

The Benefits of This Graduate Training Program

Finding a good graduate training program in Derbyshire can get your new team and their career off to a flying start. Our action focused leadership program and our graduate program are becoming increasingly popular across a variety of industries throughout the UK. 

Now, a wider variety of businesses, including many SMEs, are offering graduate training to attract high calibre, ambitious young professionals into their organisation.

We’ve delivered them to companies like Stanley Black and Decker, Qoda, Slater Gordon, Exclusive Networks and Mahle powertrain, to name a few.

Your graduates may already have plenty of work experience, whether it’s from part-time jobs or work placements (during a year out) completed as part of their degree. That doesn’t stop it feeling a little daunting to go from being a full-time student to a full-time employee. Good graduate training programmes, like ours, are specifically designed for university leavers and are structured to help provide valuable support and skills needed to build their confidence in the new workplace.

This is why the training day for the graduate’s mentors, the getting the best out of a mentoring program and the induction and team building day for the mentors and the graduates (the mentors join in at lunch) is such a great idea
