About Our Bespoke Training
We offer a personalised approach to training in professional communication skills, whilst helping you develop your inner confidence. Our training is appropriate for a wide range of healthcare professionals, from AHPs to trustees, board members, those in public health and anyone who has a health and wellbeing message to share.
COGUK training takes a fully-individualised approach. We work with groups of trainees to communicate better with their audience, whether fellow professionals or the wider community. We explore your unique strengths and sensitively discuss any weaker areas to move you forward.
There are 5 main modules in our training programme taking approximately 10 hours in total to complete. Sessions are planned over 4 weeks and are carried out online and through a bespoke training workbook. There are sessions for online training together as well as time allocated for self reflection using the materials we provide.
