Why Off-Site Training Is Much More Effective – And Much Less Hassle

Whether you’re carrying out mandatory, legally-required training or you just want to expand your team’s skillsets, regular staff training is a must. However, your offices may not be the best environment to hold your training sessions…

Based five minutes from the M60, on the outskirts of Manchester, Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) provide offices to rent of small to medium businesses – and they also offer superb workshop and training facilities on short-term leases. Here’s how taking advantages of their flexible training services can help you…

Isolation from distractions

When training, you’ll want everyone to give their undivided attention. Hold training sessions on-site and it’s all too easy for fellow colleagues to interrupt. It’s also far too easy for trainees to slip away to check calls or emails. Hold training off-site and you’ll keep such distractions to a minimum.

New environment – new ideas

Training often requires participants to “think outside the box” – so if you’re surrounded by the same old “box” of your office, the same old ideas may persist. A change of scenery can help focus the mind, open everyone up to new ideas, and help your trainees to bring their own new ideas to the table.

Bigger rooms for larger groups

Your office may not have a room that’s suitable for training. If you run a small or medium-sized business, you probably don’t have a bespoke training room – and if you’re bringing together staff from various different locations, you might not have a room large enough to accommodate everyone. Carrington Business Park have training rooms that can accommodate up to 60 people – or as few as eight.

Training rooms that can be accessed by all

Also of importance if people are travelling from far and wide is accessibility. Business parks tend to be easy to access – for example, Carrington Business Park is near the M6 and M60 motorways, is accessible by public transport from Manchester city centre, and Manchester Airport is also close by. What’s more, any attendees travelling by car can take advantage of free parking.

Flexibility – configured just for you

Bespoke training rooms such as the room offered by Carrington can easily be tailored to suit the format of your training sessions. The rooms can be laid out in several configurations, and the main conference room can even be split into two separate rooms. This means when training larger groups you could run two sessions at once – saving you time and money.

Practical workshop training

Carrington Business Park also offer a wide range of flexible workshop facilities – ideal if your training involves practical elements that require laboratory conditions or manufacturing processes. Workshops can be rented on flexible monthly agreements.

So whatever your training needs, Carrington Business Park can help you provide the perfect environment. Find out more about Carrington’s training facilities, workshops and offices to lease at www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk.
