Do you offer any bespoke training?

The Teaching & Learning team can provide bespoke training designed to cover specific topics which can be delivered in UIS training rooms or at institutional locations.

We request that any bespoke training sessions are planned for as many participants as possible, so as to maximise the use of the trainers’ time. Each request will be evaluated and considered on its merits and the available resources, and so not all requests may be feasible. Scheduling of approved requests will depend on the time required to define the training requirements and prepare supporting materials.
