In-house training is when an M&K associate trainer comes to your own premises to teach a group of your staff, or a course is held exclusively for your staff or group at a local venue. Trusts and hospitals with various spread-out sites may choose in-house training to bring together people from different locations. Whichever staff you bring to the group, in-house training gives you the opportunity to support their development in a topic of your choice, and customised to your specific needs.
In-house training is provided at your convenience. Courses can be run during the day, in the evenings or at weekends. Furthermore, each course can be delivered in single or multiple sessions.
M&K offers an ongoing scheduled programme of over 40 short clinical courses. This wide selection covers most clinical subjects. If you cannot see the course you want, then ask. Review our back catalogue of courses.
The most obvious benefit of our in-house training is that it can be specifically tailored. We design bespoke courses to meet your precise needs. Or you can choose from an extensive list of existing seminars and workshops.
We charge a single base fee. This covers all training provision, the trainer’s expenses, all course materials and the participants' certificates. Base fees vary for each course, so please contact us for a quote. If you want to train 8 people or more, in-house training will probably be less expensive than a scheduled, open course.
This is variable. For in-house training we charge per course, and we stipulate the maximum number of candidates that can be accommodated on the course. If your numbers fall short of the maximum, we will still provide your training, and you will have an opportunity to ‘sell’ the excess capacity to neighbouring organisations.
M&K are increasingly sourced to provide a block of training to organisations, spread out over a year or so. We can adapt our programmes to meet your local need, and invoice when it is most convenient for you, either before or after the training is delivered. Not only does this allow you to provide quality training across your trust to address your staff's specific needs, but you can also ensure that all training is delivered to the same high standard. This means you can spend your training budget wisely.
