Delivery Arrangements

The delivery environment is a real workplace. Through course delivery, all participants operate in a workplace environment involving resources or infrastructure work.

Course delivery including coaching activities typically occurs during weekdays and standard working hours. Weekend or out of standard hours’ sessions may however be negotiated on a client by client basis.

The delivery approaches used are workshop and self-directed study with one-to-one coaching/coaching support, with ACTA Group personnel undertaking the coaching role.

As the learning topics are a mix of theory and practical content, this approach is most suitable to provide the individual, customised program required for participants. Course structure allows participants the flexibility to complete their skill gap learning where they have other commitments.
