New, short training courses are really popular at the moment. We love them because they offer flexible training and learning solutions, providing delegates the chance to immerse themselves into single topics for just a couple of hours.
There was a time when spending a
day or two away from the office was the normal way to engage in
training. However, with greater pressures on delegates’ time, a need to
deliver training within flexible working patterns and constraints on training
budgets, new forms of training have emerged. It’s the reason why, here at Red
Door, we introduced a range of Bite Size courses where we can deliver highly
practical, two-hour sessions focusing on a single topic.
There are several benefits in participating in shorter courses. For the delegates, Bite Size courses are designed to be engaging and practical.
There’s evidence to suggest that delegates are more likely to apply learning gained from shorter courses once they are back to their day-to-day routines. For line managers, short courses mean that members of the team only need to be away from their desks for a couple of hours, rather than half or full day sessions. For learning and development teams, Bite Size is designed to be much more cost effective as the number of handouts and certificates is kept to a minimum. We’ve also found that there’s a higher-than-average sign-up from delegates for shorter courses, and many delegates return to undertake further training in either the same or complementary topics.
