Graduate Development Programs

MAKING GRADUATES PRODUCTIVE

We have had great success with our Graduate Development programmes. These programmes help graduates to become effective very quickly in the workplace combining theory with practical sessions to ‘fast-track’ the development of individuals. This approach accelerates them reaching their potential and increases the ability of participants to interact effectively with others.

Our Graduate Development programme equips graduates with the people skills that are so often cited as lacking by graduate employers.  Depending on the emphasis of the programme, graduates can develop a variety of skills. These skills include teamwork, leadership, communication, listening, creative thinking and negotiation to match their academic knowledge and achievement. This emphasis is understood prior to setting the programme objectives, meaning that the development programme is tailored to your organisation and its needs.

We also engender the high performance behaviours that are essential for a successful professional and/or managerial career: determination; positivity; resilience; openness; mindfulness; and creativity.

the problem

An effective graduate recruitment scheme is an important component of any organisation’s HR strategy. However, as resource-heavy as the process is, recruiting the best talent is only the starting point. Graduate recruits often require the support from a programme of personal development opportunities in order to thrive in the workplace and smoothly progress into the senior roles for which they were recruited for.
