Flexible Delivery Options

We will work with you to create programmes that equip your employees with the skills and competencies they need to impact your business objectives and develop personally. At BPP we have a number of different methods to deliver our training to suit each client individually.

Face to Face Face-to-Face

BPP offers traditional classroom based training. We consult with you the client on what results you need from the training and will piece together a day or half day course to be run at a venue to suit you.

Our philosophy is that the trainer is only talking for 50% of the time, the rest is taken up with discussion, group work and exercises to help embed the learning.

Online Classroom Live Online
Classroom Live

By using BPPs award winning Online Classroom Live programmes can be delivered consistently and effciently regardless of location to reach employees wherever they are based within the UK and globally. Not only does this provide added flexibility it also can deliver a reduction in travel costs. Our traditional face to face programmes can be modularised into smaller chunks to allow learning to be scheduled around the needs of your business.

Pre-recorded modules Pre-recorded

To be used on their own as standalone modules or embedded in a blended programme along with OCR Live or face to face sessions, pre-recorded modules can be used as a simple and effective 'knowledge impart' tool. We have a large catalogue of pre-recorded modules on sale for our B2C market already, but we also have the technology to quickly and easily record a bespoke and tailored module for an in-house client.

Your expert partner

We understand that training and development can take time away from day-to-day tasks. That is why we are here to shape programmes aligned with the needs of your business. We carefully structure programmes around the needs of both learners and clients.

“American Express inherited the relationship with BPP and decided to continue because BPP understand business and the courses are genuinely tailored. Facilitators have a breadth of industry knowledge and depth in specialisms, without trying to solve 20 different problems with one solution. BPP were our chosen provider because of the attention to detail and knowledge. I actively recommend BPP. I am very happy with my account manager and also the delivery of the courses. Nothing is too much trouble. When they say ‘bespoke’ courses it genuinely is bespoke.”
