What to Expect from a Virtual Training Course

Unsure About What Virtual Training Can Offer You?

At Understanding ModernGov we have designed our virtual training courses to ensure you get the best learning experience possible. Throughout the day you will use a range of tools and techniques including breakout rooms, group exercises, live chat and interactive polls, to ensure that you are able to engage and interact with your trainer and share knowledge and best practice with your peers.

Accessible from any location and device, our virtual courses will provide you with the skills you and your organisation need to thrive, in a comfortable learning environment.

Our Experience

We have worked with thousands of organisations, from major blue-chip companies to government departments including the Cabinet Office, Home Office, Department for Work and Pensions, Local Governments, Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Defence.

Our extensive knowledge and understanding of the public sector has lead us to provide training courses for thousands of public sector organisations, including NHS Trusts, Universities, Local Councils, Fire Services and Police Forces.

Your Experience

Our training courses cover a wide range of areas, including; strategic thinking, presentation skills, data visualisation, data protection, verbal communication and other personal development skills.

Each course provides an exclusive opportunity to hear from senior experts and professionals in the field that contribute to our events, including prominent parliamentarians, civil servants and academics.

In addition, our training courses offer you the chance to learn from exemplary case studies, engage in informative Q & A sessions and receive beneficial networking and training opportunities, which can be practically applied once you complete the course.

On each of our courses, the number of delegates is limited to ensure there is quality interaction with trainers and excellent opportunities to network with other delegates. All of our courses are CPD-certified and we are an accredited APMG supplier.

Learning Made For You

We also provide bespoke, in-house training for larger groups or teams with more specific requirements. Our dedicated in-house team will work closely with you throughout the design and delivery process to ensure your in-house course provides the highest quality and value.

What to Expect From a Face-to-Face Course

During our one and two day courses, we aim to inspire people, help to develop much needed strategies and implement tools for delegates to take back to their organisations.
