Tailored Intervention for Optimal Performance

At the University of Lincoln, we understand that all companies are different. You will have specific training needs for your staff so together with our knowledge and expertise we can develop specific bespoke programmes for your business.

These can be short courses to remedy a specific problem or a long term development programme aimed to help develop the skills of your team in line with current or future challenges.

Programmes can be University accredited and can involve attainment and award of a postgraduate or undergraduate degree specific to your business. Employees value the opportunity to achieve recognition of skills and develop transferable recognition of their abilities.

We are working with many organisations that have chosen this approach to ensure their employees develop the very specific skills needed to meet their business requirements and objectives.

Discuss your training requirements with one of our business experts by contacting Research & Enterprise Services on 0800 915 5278 or enterprise@lincoln.ac.uk.
