They also assess and advise on physiological matters, such as health risk and health potential, performance and sleep. Part of their role also involves working with participants to develop strategies for social, emotional, psychological and physiological wellbeing.

Academic Adult Educators

who ensure that all our programmes are fit for purpose and are delivered in the most effective way. Our academic team also put all of our programmes through a robust review and evaluation process to make sure they achieve the desired impact. They also bring a comprehensive understanding of the ecology of learning and human development to the programme.

Executive Coaches & Trainers
