Training spaces and venues

With our portfolio of inspiring training venues, we know that we offer something different to the trainer. Unusual venues by their very nature are identifiable – they send a message to the delegate and create specific environments. They're inspirational and create the setting for creative thinking – a training course at Twickenham Stadium, The Kia Oval or the Sheffield United elevates the session from the white wall environments that some employees are used to. 

Equally, some popular meeting venues are situated in the countryside, away from busy city life, and allow space, focus and escape for both trainer and trainee. A day at Hever Castle mixes the perfect setting for concentration, but also the space to settle and regroup afterwards. 

We take the comfort of your guests seriously, so you can rest assured that each of our venues follows essential Covid-19 safety measures. 

Health and safety training

We know how important it is for your staff to be kept up to date with health and safety procedures, now more than ever. We have a range of COVID-secure venues with enough space for social distancing and the latest AV capabilities to ensure your training day goes smoothly. 

Training for care workers

Training isn’t just a way of helping an employee become better at what they do; it's a signal that the business cares about that person’s career, that they want them to flourish and will invest in supporting their growth. Although these are business-focused messages, it's amazing how well this reflects on staff happiness and productivity. 

Supporting great training

As with all events, we believe that organisers who choose unusual venues are thinking harder than others about creating the right environment for their group. Training, be it team building, graduate training, apprenticeship programmes, senior management courses, or chartered and accredited learning, all require different environments that need to be curated by the organiser. 

To educate a delegate takes skill from a trainer, someone who understands their development needs, and how best to coach them to improve their performance and progression. We work in partnership with these professionals to understand how the venue can contribute. We can look at locations, settings and rooms that send a subliminal or direct message. 

Some of our meeting venues have prestigious histories of learning, exploration and self-improvement. They underline the importance of the course and make them richer for it. Venues aren’t the be-all and end-all of the learning process, but they make a telling contribution to help make the event as impactful as possible.  

Brain food

What a delegate eats can have a major impact on how productive the training is for them, and trainers, caterers and venues are becoming more and more sophisticated at incorporating food into the total training experience. 

We know that heavy carbohydrates at lunch create a sleepy atmosphere in the afternoon, while caffeine can be a stimulant. Trainers respect this and work closely with the venue and the catering team to choose the right menus that both feed the mind and encourage better learning and sustained concentration for longer periods. 

Food also underlines the sense of care that a delegate feels when they are given the chance to attend a training course. The right food shows that someone is thinking about their health and wellbeing and hasn't just put something together last minute. At the end of the day, a well-thought-out menu shows reward and appreciation.
