Our award-winning Career Development Training Programme has been designed to help women further their careers across not just UK business but globally thanks to our online training course platform.
The core goal of our Career Development Training Programme has been designed around helping women in the workplace further their careers in the UK business environment. The training programme has now been successfully running for over a decade across the UK and has already helped over 10,000 women in business advance professionally.
The career development training programme is available as a three-month or six-month programme and can be delivered in a face to face or webinar format.
The stats speak for themselves. Upon completion of career development training:
Within one year of completing the programme over two thirds of participants have been promoted!
The initial module examines the impact of communication on our professional image and introduces a range of tools and techniques to help delegates feel more confident and in control when faced with potentially difficult conversations at work.
Different communication styles are highlighted, as well as the impact these differences can have on both our daily interactions and the outcomes we achieve. The workshop also explores unconscious bias, so that participants broaden their understanding of the dynamics of diverse groups and communicate with greater rapport.
This module explores the importance of image, visibility and effective networking on career progression. Participants will gain the skills and confidence to showcase the talent, knowledge and achievements they have to offer their organisation, thereby giving their employers access to the widest possible talent pool.
In this module, women analyse their current levels of commitment, capability and confidence in achieving career development. The workshop enables participants to take stock of their career to date, assess their current strengths and achievements and create a targeted action plan for career success.
Throughout the programme, participants are supported to develop their presentation skills. In this final session, participants will be invited to deliver a short presentation to the rest of their peer group to share lessons and successes from their time on our career development programme.

“There are quite a few challenges for women with careers in construction where barriers stop them from climbing the ladder, I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to undertake the Skills 4 course. It has given me so much more confidence.”
