LAS make sure that we deliver training that is both interesting and useful.

Learning is most effective if it can be practiced and applied quickly and on-the-job, so we run our training programmes in cycles ensuring that there are always relevant sessions available. This means that the learning can be undertaken as soon as skills gaps emerge and because the topics are directly linked to the job being done newly acquired skills will not be forgotten.
Both employee and employer benefit by combining learning with the day to day demands of the business.
