consultancy: in-service training and organisational development

From the earliest days of the HPRP, we offered in-service training to staff in organisations. These were often in a managerial role, for example, John Heron worked with the most senior Police Officers seconded to Bramshill College for training to step into the Chief Constable ranks. Many of our inputs were also for trainers. This became something we advertised in our programme explicitly. The description below was taken from the 1988-9 programme of the Human Potential Resources Group because it was the most fully delineated.

We provide in service staff training and organisational development programmes ranging from one day to long term programmes spanning years. We have at our disposal the facilitation and consultancy skills of our core HPRP staff team and our international network of associate facilitators. Some of these facilitators work in the industrial sector and others work as consultants in both public and private sectors. In addition we draw upon the computer and distance learning expertise, audio-visual material production and other resources within the University.
