Helping you improve outcomes for young people by improving the skills of your managers and leaders

Engage Learners

Formation uses a variety of techniques to engage managers and leaders. We know that truly inspiring training can improve the quality of leadership within the children and young peoples’ workforce.

We deliver tried-and-tested leadership and management theory in exciting, creative ways, but… we don’t promote creative techniques for the sake of it.

Our focus is on learning techniques that surprise and engage learners. So, for example, when we talk about using storytelling as a learning aid, we do it because we know it works. It gives learners new perspectives that help open their eyes to new ways of working.

Inspiring leaders to implement new ideas and change behaviour

Rigid course structures with people sitting listening to a trainer rarely work. Training needs to be flexible to adjust for interaction, questions and developments along the way. Participants on our sessions are given time to share their experience and work on new ideas with peers to get the most from the sessions.

Leadership Development

Engage your leaders with creative and inspiring training that builds on their experience, and gives them the confidence to manage their teams confidently.

Aspiring Managers

Inspire those of your staff who are looking to develop their skills and start their journey towards management posts.

Leadership 360o

Show your leaders and managers what impact their leadership style has on their colleagues to shape and change their leadership behaviour.

Our Innovative Approach

Our innovative approach benefits leaders by:
• giving them the confidence to try new tools and implement new ideas
• supporting them to deal with and manage change
• helping them develop improved problem solving skills
• encouraging them to look at things differently and generate fresh ideas
• developing resilience in the face of setbacks by trying new techniques
• encouraging collaborative approach to bringing about improvement

Cost effective training tailored to the needs of your staff

Because every client is different, and each group of staff need different things, we don’t list ‘ready to buy’ courses. Instead we talk to you to find out what you really need, and what you think will help move your leaders and your organisation forward.

This means that every programme we deliver is different. Because it is designed to meet the needs of the people actually taking part, not the needs of another group.

What kind of training do you need?

You can book a single twilight, a standalone full or half day training, or a longer leadership programme.
If you’re not sure what your leaders need, we can talk to you about different ways of identifying where your staff have gaps in their knowledge or skills.

As well as delivering training, clients ask us to support them with a range of services, such as facilitation of SLT sessions or writing strategy and materials.
