Learn4 Skills Academy

Multi award-winning, World class and Engaging Development

Our Programmes

Overview

We offer a full range of outsourced learning solutions which will transform your business performance, from programme design to scheduling, evaluation, employee communication and reporting. Whether you have an existing academy which you are seeking to improve, or you are investigating how you might introduce an academy, Lane4 can help.

From our research into leadership transitions, we know that leaders need to change the way they operate each time they transition to a new role. Yet many struggle; around 85% of organisations reported that line managers and supervisors lacked the skills they needed to succeed. As leaders progress to new levels of leadership, they need to develop new capabilities and adopt new behaviours, while moderating some familiar habits that are no longer valued in the role. 

Coupled with employees’ expectations of flexibility over career path and development, as well as when and how they work, organisations are wrestling with the challenge of developing and maintaining a workforce that has the skills to meet a rapidly changing environment.

 

We can tailor our academy according to the strategic needs of your business and the individual needs of your learners. We understand how to work with you to create the learning pathways which will help you to meet your strategic goals, and then design a curriculum which will deliver against these. Our range of off the shelf and bespoke learning programmes are delivered across all levels of the organisation by our experienced facilitation team.

Our established framework of courses enables us to work with you in defining, designing and implementing their L&D investments in a way that maximises value for the business. Lane4 put the delegate at the heart of the learning experience and can tailor a blended learning journey which will reflect the needs of your learning population. Our expert facilitation team truly understand how to work with individuals to create performance shift.

Scheduling learning to make the most efficient use of resources takes experience. We can work with you to find the most efficient ways to schedule, manage and administer learning, reducing your L&D costs and simplifying back office processes by reducing invoice volumes.

Why choose Lane4

We put the delegate at the heart of all our Skills Courses – ensuring that they have both an effective and impactful learning experience. The format of all workshops is fast paced, energetic, dynamic and task orientated. 

The workshops are built around immersive and experiential learning such as live case studies (actors/role plays), toolkits, videos, computer simulations and practical tools to ensure knowledge retention and quicker application back into the workplace.

We provide delegates with practical tools and strategies that can be implemented immediately, with behaviour change maintained over the longer-term.

The modular nature of the courses means they can stand alone or be combined as part of a development programme specific to each individual’s professional development.
