Introduction and Course Overview
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the course. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.

detail during this session and practice each of them.

About the courses
The workshops are a fun & entertaining learning experience. We highlight skills throughout the course and provide practical information on solving current issues and situations. By applying the information personally to each of the participants we help provide real solutions for each individual.
The way we deliver
We discuss with participants what they would like to obtain from each course. This way the facilitator knows exactly what information will be useful to each individual. It also means each course is custom made to suit the individuals at the course and our participants can learn more at a quicker pace without covering material that may not be required. By learning from each other within the course the participants can take real skills back to the workplace.
This helps everyone make the most of the training. Here are some additional details on why many people choose a Paramount course.
