It’s important to be fully prepared before undertaking any staff training. Having engaging, knowledgeable training staff and well-prepared, up-to-date training materials is only half the story. You must also give careful consideration to where your training takes place.
Carrington Business Park provide great value office services to small and medium-sized businesses. Based on the outskirts of Manchester, Carrington Business Park have offices to rent, excellent conference facilities and training rooms to rent on short-term agreements.
Here’s Carrington Business Park’s quick overview of important factors you must consider when choosing your training room.
Avoid training on your own premises
To keep everyone focused on the training session, it’s better to hold it off-site rather than at your own office. If your day job is just a few feet away, it’s hard to fully banish it from your mind.
Carrington Business Park’s training rooms are ideal for off-site training – and they’re available to rent on flexible agreements, so you won’t be tied into them for longer than you want to be.
Rent a training room that’s easy to access
If all your delegates are based in Manchester, it makes sense to rent a training room in or near Manchester. If trainees are travelling from around the country, Manchester is also perfect, as it’s relatively central and has excellent motorway and public transport links. If the location of your training room is difficult to get to, your delegates may be tired out before training even begins, and desperate to get a head start on leaving – not ideal when you need them to stay focused.
Wherever you’re travelling from, Carrington Business Park is easy to get to. It’s just five minutes from the M60, ten minutes from the M6, 15 minutes from the airport and on several frequent bus routes. And for drivers, there’s plenty of free parking on-site.
Give careful consideration to the size of your room
Don’t cram all your trainees into a room that’s too small to comfortably hold them. Conversely, don’t book a huge room for a handful of trainees – it’ll create an unnervingly empty atmosphere that isn’t conducive with learning.
Carrington Business Park have several training rooms to rent, from a small six-person room ideal for intimate training sessions to a large 100-seater theatre style room, which is great for lectures. There’s also a medium-sized room that can hold 60 trainees that can be split into two 30-person rooms. There’s sure to be a training room configuration that suits you and your team.
Rent a training room at Carrington Business Park and you’ll find it so easy to create the perfect learning environment, helping your trainees keep focused and make the most of their training session.
