All our training courses are now delivered 100% online.

 Virtual Training with Coaching (VTC) – VTC

We know that 3-hour long virtual classroom sessions are the most effective method for online teaching. Any longer, delegates can switch off, any less, than the key discussions and learning opportunities can be missed.

The coaching element of VTC provides the learner with a deeper understanding on how the classroom training relates and applies to their own individual work and role. Making it more practical and applied to real world situations.

The application-based short assignments provide practical activity to transfer this understanding into real world action and wisdom.

I think True North Excellence’s coaching on the course is a fantastic extra to the online training, it allows us the time to really question the instructor on how it relates to us, and gain his knowledge more specifically on issues we are facing in our own businesses.

I really like the coaching sessions. It stimulates thought and clarifies the main points covered in the training. The addition of the coaching sessions is an improvement on what you would normally expect from classroom training.
