Otago Executive Education works closely with you
We customise the training to your organisational requirements and personalise it to the individual participant's needs.
Our service involves:
- Really understanding your needs: Our management team and facilitators work directly with your organisation to understand your specific objectives and needs. They will visit your workplace to observe the working environment and customise the courses to ensure the content and delivery meet the needs of both the organisation and individual participants.
- Coaching at personal level: Each programme is about eight months in duration and includes a one-week residential programme which can take place at any one of our campus locations in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, or Dunedin. This learning process includes coaching at personal level.
- Measuring the outcomes: We go the extra mile to measure the impact of the training for your workplace. After completing the residential immersion experience, students return to the workplace to put their learning into practice. Our on-going assessment procedures are designed to quantify the student’s individual learning, and the outcomes for the organisation.
- Standing out from the crowd: The in-house structure, modular format, commitment to innovation, flexibility, and personalisation of our programmes make our programme stands out from the crowd.
