Bitesize Programme

 In our hectic work environment the demands for flexibility and being available 24/7 are only increasing. We all want to learn new skills, but it can be hard to find time for a two-day, or even a one-day training course. The Professional Development Centre’s Bitesize Programme has been designed to solve this problem, and enables learning in simple and effective 90 minute chunks.

Some advantages of our Bitesize 90 workshops for companies include:

  • allowing all members of a team to experience learning together at the same time, even if they are in different locations
  • offering practical and easy to implement learning ‘nuggets’ for those who don’t have time for longer programmes
  • enhancing and reinforcing existing programmes to promote continuous learning and development

There are a number of suites, each comprising several units. You can select one unit as a standalone workshop or select from across the suites to build a learning journey for your staff.

Each unit is typically run as a 90 minute workshop with an experienced British Council trainer/facilitator. This can be either face-to-face run at your office or through a webinar. 

The Bitesize modules can also be licensed by you to run in your organisation without a trainer. Each unit can be self-directed for individual learning or facilitated by a team leader.
