Face to Face

Fastclass programmes are designed to run on your premises over one day or a half day. They are to be highly interactive for up to 16 participants.
Participants must complete short pieces of pre-course work to assess their current skills and confidence in the subject so they are aware of their own strengths and weaknesses.
Tutors are subject experts with substantial hands-on management experience as well as training skills.

Live online learning

Fastclasses can be delivered online in highly engaging 1½ hour interactive webinars for up to 12 participants. Participants complete pre-programme work which is submitted and assessed ahead of the webinar so that learners get the best value during the interaction with our expert tutors.
