Open Courses

Open courses (also known as public courses) are an alternative to in-house courses and an excellent option if you have only a small number of employees requiring a particular course. If you are an individual looking to develop your skills in a particular area, attending an open course is an ideal solution. Group sizes on open courses tend to be small, typically 4 – 6 delegates. So there is plenty of opportunity for individual support from the trainer. On courses such as Business Writing, delegates can bring along samples of their own written work and benefit from feedback.

On Presentation Skills and Train the Trainer courses, delegates can use the practical sessions as a means of developing and practising something they have to do for real in their workplace. Newleaf Associates offers a selection of our most popular courses as open courses. If the course you are looking for is not currently listed or the location is not convenient, please contact us anyway. We will schedule more courses in other cities according to demand.
