Advantages and Disadvantages of Custom Courses
Whether you’re seeking education opportunities for yourself or exploring training for colleagues and employees, at some point you will likely come up against a decision: is your training need best met by an open course or a bespoke training?
Here is a look at the advantages and disadvantages of custom courses.
Advantages of Custom Courses
More focused training
Running a custom training course for a single client usually allows the training to be a lot more focused on the specific subjects and skills that are relevant to your business. With a bespoke training, most aspects are customizable. Public courses are often generic because they address businesses of any sector or size that attend them.
An in-house training means the course can be designed and refined to address your specific needs and issues, using real-life examples and therefore have the highest impact. Your colleagues will be able to work on current work or examples of work which relates to their roles, not on generic examples.
Training cost savings
For a custom training, the cost per participant is typically lower than public courses due to the fact the training company only has to send a trainer to your HQ rather than set up an entire training environment themselves somewhere else, and you could have significantly more people attend it. Therefore, reasonable cost savings can be achieved.
