Dealing with Post-Merger Issues: Culture and People Integration Workshop
Tuesday 17 April 2018
So you’re about to merge or you’ve merged, but that’s only half the battle. KPMG estimate that 83% of mergers fail because they don’t reconcile the cultural differences involved.
This workshop will help delegates identify the cultural barriers that might prevent a merger from being successful, and look at how other organisations have overcome these.
The workshop will also look at how you can deal with issues related to harmonization of terms and conditions, policies, structures and other people-related issues – what are the risks, how can it be done, and more.
Who should attend:
Human Resources staff, Middle and Senior Managers within Further Education Colleges
Promoting Independent Learning Workshop
Wednesday 18 April 2018, London
Students who have the skills and motivation to work and learn independently are almost certain to meet or exceed their learning targets and goals. They have the curiosity, mind set, resilience and study skills to work in a focused and purposeful way in and away from the college, workplace or other learning environment.
For students to become more independent, educators need to have a bulging toolkit of teaching, learning and assessment methods and also effective ways to overcome the fears, self doubts, irrational beliefs and other factors that inhibit a student’s chance of realising their full potential.
This workshop will combine up to date evidence based and sector relevant teaching, learning and assessment methods with ideas and approaches drawn from the trainer’s experience, knowledge and research as a cognitive behavioural therapist and solutions-focused coach.
