Your Company’s Biggest Asset

Employees are a company’s biggest asset, and investing in talent is vital to sustainable business growth and success. Workgroups that engaged in employee development experienced a sales increase and profits double compared to workgroups that didn’t engage at all, according to a study conducted by Gallup.

Without up-to-date training, an employee will lack the necessary knowledge to best perform in a company. Within the world of any shape or form of design and development, things change and improve by the minute and if you as a company fail to keep your employees adequately trained like your top competitors do, they will underperform. Change is inevitable and it happens for a reason. When new trends arise or techniques emerge, they do so, because more often than not, they are more efficient and effective than their predecessors.

If you are wondering if investing in equipment would be better spent, look at these statistics in a study conducted by the National Center on the Educational Quality of the Workforce (EQW):

Training Costs Money and Time!

Time is of the essence since your staff will be unable to work while they are training. It has to be done correctly in order for you to ensure that it is a profitable investment, not a cost!

  • Did they cover workflow process, learn best practice and shown shorts cuts? If they were has there production time decreased and production output increased?
  • How did they interact with the trainer and learn from other delegates?
  • Did they take an accredited exam?

Bespoke Training

The process for generating bespoke course content is to use the generic course content and create a course which meets the specific needs of those involved with your project. It would be beneficial if a relevant project was used as a core component of the bespoke course.

This would have the following benefits:

  • The content is specific to the project and skill sets of delegates.
  • The project continues to be developed whilst training is delivered.
  • Delegates receive relevant training and new skill sets.
  • Delegates receive insight into an applications best practice, short cuts and workflow process.
  • Delegates can call upon the experienced trainer to offer ‘consultancy’ in relation to the project.

The process to create the bespoke course content will involve the following:

  • Generic course outline is considered by you to identify the required course topics in line with the project requirements or based on your current skill sets and returned to Academy Class.
  • Project trainer will then consider the required content and create, in conjunction with the you, the final course content for approval.

It is recommend that delegates consider the course details and identify their specific requirements, which will help with clarifying the learning and business objectives and determine the duration of the course. Once this has been completed, a conversation with our trainers to further explore the requirements for the course.

If you take care of your employees, 
they will take care of your clients.”

Thoroughly enjoyed this course and have learnt so much in a relatively short space of time. Really worthwhile. The teacher was really knowledgeable and helpful.

 

Vince W, London

Fantastic course led by a very professional instructor. No attitude and nothing to elevate ego over the students (as sometimes experienced elsewhere). Always happy to answer questions and figure out specific techniques pertinent to our jobs. A great experience over the entire course. Friendly staff. Beautiful location. Nicely timed breaks. Would definitely recommend.

 

Brian L, London

Excellent course to learn the basic functions of Aftereffects would highly recommend for anyone to looking to take their first steps in using the tools to create motion graphics. Ben the tutor is fantastic and very good at explaining step by step.
