In addition to general training programmes we have material tailored to specific business sectors and operate in-company training courses where material can be tailored to specific customer needs.
iSTEC Partnership has always adopted a participative approach to training programmes, convinced that people learn by doing rather than just listening. As such, ISTEC’s courses involve a significant proportion of workshops, case study and simulation exercises. The case study and role play activities are designed to highlight key teaching points in a controlled environment, ensuring that a wide range of experiences can be illustrated in a relatively short period of time.
iSTEC Partnership also has expertise in the establishment and management of consultancy companies and has helped a number of service providers to gain certification. This assistance ranges from providing specific training courses to the secondment of staff to project manage the establishment of the certification and the development of its own quality management system on which to base its future development.

We systematically evaluate every course, based on your feedback, so you can book safe in the knowledge that we’re committed to giving a quality service.
An iSTEC Partnership delegate benefits from:
- Highly qualified trainers - our trainers engage the participants and are focused on the objectives of the training. As practising assessors, they have in-depth knowledge of the type of problems and issues you face daily. They use the latest thinking, real experiences and practical models to ensure that everything you learn can be transferred back to the workplace.
- Limited delegate numbers - we limit the number of delegates to ensure a higher level of interaction which offers the opportunity to discuss individual circumstances.
- Free accommodation booking service - where your training takes place over two or more days, we can organise your accommodation, including breakfast and evening meal. Where possible, the accommodation will be at the training venue or a nearby hotel of a similar standard.
- Conveniently located - all venues are conveniently located and inspected in advance. We take note of your feedback to make sure that the high standard of service we promise is provided.
We are holding workshops throughout the year focusing on specific standards, changes and updates. If you want to find out more or reserve a place, you can register on the specific workshop page.
How would a training programme that is designed to meet your needs benefit you? One that focuses on your products, systems and goals. A programme designed to energise and motivate your people.
Our experience is key
Our core trainers are professionally qualified which is your assurance that we take your learning seriously. They have a wealth of training and practical experience, having spent many years working with a wide variety of different organisations so chances are they have dealt with issues just like yours.
By using the best training methods for your group – including case study, role play, increased amount of interactive dialogue, and practical examples from your organisation – you will be actively involved so helping to absorb more information.
Taking control of your learning
Your management system is unique, so why not choose a unique solution? Our In-Company service can be the most effective way of providing training that really delivers results. And you’re in the driving seat.
An iSTEC Partnership In-Company event means more to you and your organisation because we ensure that your trainer is given opportunity:
- to review specific training needs before the event and discuss your objectives
- to gather relevant information on your organisation
- to tailor course content during delivery to reflect company policies and procedures
- to review how well the course met your needs following delivery
If you are looking for a training solution that is more specifically geared to your company in terms of tailored material, live audits, case studies and role play, we can tailor our offering with two further In-Company offering: customised and bespoke.
You may want to customise aspects of an event to meet your specific requirements or focus on particular areas of your system. In this way, we can tailor the course material – for example, additional slides referencing company policies and procedures, use of logos – or even introduce live audits. Following delivery, we will review the course with you and where appropriate help you decide your next step.
This option is ideal for organisations that have specific organisational objectives to meet. We can design and deliver a training and development solution for you from scratch. We will arrange to visit you prior to the delivery to talk through your needs and objectives, and become familiar with your organisation. In this way, the training materials can be designed to meet your specific needs reflecting the management system in place, company processes and procedures, and working culture. Live audits can be scheduled into the programme as appropriate.
Many companies choose to bring risk and safety training courses to their workplace. iSTEC Partnership can deliver any of our courses at your premises, plant or offices. Courses delivered in-house can be customized to include your specific industry requirement. In addition, special topics can be added to the course curriculum to accommodate your individual training needs.
