London Training for Excellence, focus in real-life experiences
How did the idea of creating a training centre come up?
I have spent years sitting through training courses in my professional career which didn’t engage me as I had hoped. The traditional, old-school training styles with a not very engaging and have a cold training room that is a tiresome and uninspiring environment for the student.
I was sure a lot of trainees felt the same, so I decided to create a modern training centre with exciting and animated trainers from all over the world sharing their knowledge, experience and passions.
This diverse mix of trainers and backgrounds has meant companies have benefited long-term from the courses their employees take with us.

Is there any aspect of your centre that you would like to highlight?
Our trainees are undoubtedly the backbone of our training centre. We have rigorous interviewing processes to ensure our trainers are the best available in their fields. Along with the importance of an experienced and knowledgeable trainer, we also want our trainers to be friendly and approachable. We don’t want trainees to leave a course with any questions they feel weren’t answered fully or competently and encourage open discussion between the trainer and trainees.

The methodologies for a flexible and innovative approach
What teaching methodologies do you use? Why did you choose them?
We like to include elements of real-life experiences where possible in our training. Our trainers have years of experience in their fields and this experience should be shared in a practical way. Role plays are a key feature as are simulations of situations which are possible in this doesn’t take away from a core theoretical knowledge, but we find it instead enhances this.
Are your courses more theoretical or practical?
We pride ourselves on using a blend of practical and theoretical knowledge. Our aim is that by the end of a course, a trainee can solve real problems that may arise in an organisation. Ensuring at the same time to explain the reasoning behind their problem-solving method. This blend of teaching methods ensures a well-rounded trainee is produced following training with us.
What do you think about education nowadays? How has it changed since last century?
Education has changed hugely in the last century. The emphasis has moved largely away from exercise books and reference texts. The introduction and widespread use of the internet has made people at ease with constantly up-to-date information available at their fingertips. Books on contemporary business strategies are outdated almost as soon as they are published. Their use in real life situations is now more a guide than a solution. There has been a certain shift lately, particularly with adult education towards a holistic approach to business and an understanding of practical experiences which trainees can continually draw from and trial in their day-to-day business dealings.
