Training Hub

What is the Training Hub?

We believe in lifelong learning. Our Training Hub brings together resources to support personal and professional progress.

Why Gordon Yates?

Since launching our training division in 2007, we have helped hundreds of companies and thousands of individuals with skills development.
Our training hub supports our work as recruiters. Starting a new role is the beginning of a journey, not its destination. We want to encourage long term growth.
As in our recruiting, we believe overwhelmingly in human connection. These days there are many off-the-shelf resources available online and elsewhere, but individuals have different needs and learning styles.
We want to understand you and your career journey. We work with you to support your individual situation and aspirations.

How does delivery work?

Our training works around you.
In many cases, companies ask us to deliver courses on-site, or via online groups. We discuss goals and put together tailored proposals.
Other times, one-to-one mentoring or coaching is needed. This can be a one-off conversation, or via planned sessions over a period of weeks.
Since hybrid working became widespread, we have also introduced ‘lunchtime learning’ – easy access, one-hour online sessions to facilitate continued skills development alongside WFH.
These can be one-on-one, or in small groups with colleagues if preferred. They can be a single session or, depending on content, a series of sessions over a period of weeks.
They don’t even need to be at lunchtime. The principal is of flexibility and making training work in a way that suits you.
Whatever your needs, get in touch and let’s talk.
