Approach and Delivery Methods

The Dods Training philosophy is based on four core pillars:

  • Cost effectiveness -  the learning options offered range from two-hour intensive sessions to multiple-day courses so that participants are free to choose the amount of training that's right for their needs.
  • Time management - after 12 years of experience delivering training across government & the public sector, Westminster Explained's courses are time effective not only in terms of duration but in terms of when they are scheduled: weekdays, evenings, lunchtimes or whenever suits you best.
  • Different methods for different learning styles - the training delivery methods and course agendas developed are highly flexible in the knowledge that different individuals, teams and organisations have different needs and preferences.
  • High quality - all trainers are highly experienced, both in the specific subject area they teach and in delivering top-notch training. They, along with the materials they use and the methods they employ, are regularly reviewed to ensure that the best standards are maintained.

By adhering strictly to this approach, Dods Training delivers consistently high quality training to suit all needs, delivering over 400 open and bespoke training sessions per year, as well as one-to-one coaching for those wishing to develop specific areas of their personal and professional career individually, on their own terms.

Reviews

Average rating 4.9

Based on 194 reviews.

Programme officer – Mayors office for policing and crime
As someone with no experience of policy this was a good explanation of steps to consider in policy development.
Policy Advisor – Electoral commission
Getting an opportunity to test out some of the different skills talked about through the use of case studies; getting a greater understanding of the whole policy process so that I can understand how the government departments that we, as an organisation, work with approach policy making and where we fit into that or can add value.
Senior Administrator, Gilead Sciences
The trainer was excellent, insightful and experienced
