work with us
Leaders in Business are required to deliver more than just day to day management of their employees.
They are responsible and accountable for entire divisions of a business, to oversee the quality of work being produced and are required to coach and mentor their own staff to achieve the wider strategic direction of the business.
Trust Leaders in Business to develop the future leaders of your business.
Leaders in Business brings together significant expertise in sector knowledge, learning and development, and government funding. At the heart of this sits the learner, with delivered solutions created specifically for the sector and overlaid with organisation-relevant content to facilitate application in their immediate workplace.
Learning preferences, demographics, shift patterns and the changing demands of the sector drive our focus on innovation in learning delivery, whilst ensuring high levels of engagement, retention and successful outcomes.

partnerships forged for long-term workforce development
Leaders in Business are renowned for their approach to forging long-term working partnerships. We take the time to understand your unique workforce development requirements and create a plan that mitigates the skills shortages it contains.
Leaders in Business will be the primary training provider and will use our own team of direct delivery staff or specialist subcontractors, depending on which particular apprenticeships we are successful in securing. There may also be opportunities for us to utilise your own internal training teams to maximise
the delivered value and to provide a return to the business.
The delivery will comprise all elements of the Leaders in Business delivery model and will utilise up-to-date learning methodologies and incorporate appropriate learning technologies to maximise learner engagement, retention, and application.
Regardless of whether it is staff or an associate (or your internal team) effecting delivery on our behalf, the same rigorous and high quality standards will be maintained. For example, the content used will only be that designed and developed by Leaders in Business’s in-house product development team, which will draw on the time spent with you understanding your organisational requirements, ensuring each course design and delivery method adds value, and meets the agreed and required learning outcomes.
Programme quality will be maintained through the rigorous selection, on-boarding, and performance management processes in place, combined with unannounced observations, focus groups, learner feedback, and regular contact with your key personnel, all managed and conducted by our quality
One of the key benefits of working with Leaders in Business is that we have a long and in-depth experience of working within the sector and therefore understand the requirements and challenges around flexible working. As a result, we build flexible training delivery into our programme design and delivery model. This can include out-of-hours delivery as well as utilising technology to conduct elements of the programme. This ensures the learners have a varied learning experience, thereby increasing engagement.
During the diagnostic stage of the process we will work closely with your key people (e.g. operations, HR, training, management) to understand your business strategy, culture, operations, and to get clarity around specific role requirements (we ask you to provide us with the job descriptions, etc. for the roles we will be working with). Using this as a baseline we will then look to develop learning solutions which maximise learning engagement, retention, and application through a blended learning methodology, with formative assessments built in throughout to help prepare the learner for whatever form of summative assessment is required. We will also involve your training staff in the design and delivery of our training as this facilitates and maximises organisational relevance and application and helps offset your levy spend.
Our programmes are designed to make an immediate and positive impact. We adopt a practical ‘application’ focus to our content and training to enable your learners to use it as soon as they are back in the workplace. Our face-to-face delivery will be designed around identifying the more complex or difficult-to-understand aspects of the learning and providing a range of activities and exercises to help maximise learning.
Learners will be provided with up-front learning content and resources (in a variety of media) and their learning will be ‘checked, consolidated, and applied’ in these face-to-face group sessions. Additionally we will, where possible, integrate live scenarios into the programme to give learners the context so they can make a real difference in their roles. Aligned to this practical application focus is flexibility, to take into account learner and organisational needs, as well as quality learning resources to give learners.
