Our five step approach to training programme design:


"We developed a strong relationship with EEF’s trainers. By meeting them before the programme began, we could make sure that the training they provided chimed with our working practices and culture, and was strongly linked into our business. We could also tap into the strong best practice network within EEF membership to help us benchmark what we were doing and the outcomes, as the EEF team put us in touch with other member businesses which had created similar programmes" - Matthew Byrom, Process Transformation Manager, Business Excellence, Siemens
