We have taught private, closed training for data protection and cyber security for clients, large and small.
To our dismay, we have found numerous complaints around the standard of delivery of other large training companies. We heard comments such as this about companies offering public training courses:
“When we trained with Training Company X we found that their trainers were just reading the course materials to us. Their trainers didn’t seem to know the material beyond what was written in the official course materials! I could have read all of that myself!”
Athene only provides tutors who have used the course skills in the real world. We believe that this can bring the subject to life, give it a context and allow the delegate to engage with the course materials in a manner which promotes learning.
“John from Training Company X didn’t teach us anything beyond passing the exam. I’m not confident in my knowledge, even though I have the piece of paper saying that I have passed…”
Athene Training, when selecting tutors, will only use tutors who can speak from experience. In fact, people who can actually speak. For some training companies, having someone to stand at the front of the tutor group is enough. Whether that person can project their voice, be affable with delegates, engage with delegates to draw out useful examples – that is often so low on the list of attributes of the trainer that the large training companies seem not to care.
Athene Training has been successful in private tuition because we take the official course materials and seek to bring them to life. Training delegates are investing their time to acquire a qualification, so we respect that by investing our time and real-world experience to make the course engaging and a true transfer of knowledge.
We still want you to pass the exam… We also want you to feel confident when talking about the subject and in the application of the knowledge you have discovered.
Your future is within reach…
