About Us

Allow me to say something controversial...

...Training has lost its way!

Breckland Training Services (BTS) was launched in 2013 to deliver primarily an external training and development service to the public sector.

Due to its continued success BTS is being developed into a local authority trading company allowing it to trade with both the public and private sectors across the country as well as in subject areas outside the normal scope of a standard local authority training organisation.

Our view is that some training companies think they are more important than the people they are teaching. It’s all about their latest complicated model, structure,method or template. At BTS, we play to your strengths and we do this by starting with you and not a training manual.

Rather than pluck something off the shelf and hope that it sticks, we provide practical and useful learning programs built around the core strengths and personality of your top performers, leaders and ideal customers – and the culture of your business or organisation. Our training is simple to understand, quick to use, and easy to recall because it is practical with the perfect blend of theoretical models. Our programs are real-world, immersive and feel natural.

Here’s WHY we do it:

We get out of bed in the morning to get real results from our learning programs. It’s easy to provide training’. It’s much harder to change the behaviour of humans. That’s our passion! No training company will work harder to understand your people. And no training programme will work harder to improve their performance.

Here’s HOW we do it:

Unlike traditional training, we don’t lock you into our system, or bend you to our rules. We are unique in that we start with you. This makes your learning development much more bespoke – it looks and feels culturally aligned. A rigid methodology can be a straight-jacket when solving specific problems, so we prefer a flexible, ideas-led approach. With years of senior-level experience, our trainers can focus a team’s natural strengths, fire their imaginations and ultimately change their behaviour.

Traditional training doesn’t encourage adults to naturally change, because it is a day or two of rather boring training and not much else. Traditional training is more likely to be ‘off the shelf’ – featuring a trainer who lacks real world experience. There will be 1-2 days of some rather dated slides, a lot of ‘chalk and talk’, a future-dust-gatherer called a workbook, and not much learning going on at all. Traditional training might get a temporary spike in performance, but it is quickly forgotten because it hasn’t gone beyond skin-deep.

With BTS, real change takes place rather than simply ‘getting trained’.

Thanks for taking the time to read about us. We look forward to getting to know you.
