“The range of development programmes is excellent” > Andrew Ltd

“Development Programmes are a significant investment into the development of the Service. Better leadership means better direction, improved coaching, increased job satisfaction, higher levels of engagement and more customerresponsive service delivery. By developing the customer service processes and professional skills within the Service, we will benefit every employee within the Service and our customers, not just the people who are directly involved.”

“At very short notice, Carnegie adapted off-the-shelf training packages and developed a bespoke training programme to provide the solution for skill gaps in my organisation. The training was sufficiently flexible to address the different skills levels so that each officer could achieve the maximum benefit, in turn providing positive results for the business.”

> Fife Council

“The range of development programmes is excellent. With flexible delivery and variable options, this results in cost effective savings and has forged a lasting partnership, thus saving Andrew the need to look for further providers. Training was recently delivered to meet our needs at our facilities in the Czech Republic and India, and Andrew look forward to further enhancing this relationship.”

“In any large organisation one of the key resources is managers. To continue to develop high performing teams, we invested in a team development programme designed and facilitated by Carnegie. The programme provided the opportunity for managers to work together in a non-threatening environment to work in small teams to solve business simulation problems.”

“An excellent overall course package covering course material, delivery, tutor availability, training location and residential environment. Everything focused on achieving the course objectives and goals.” > Worldmark UK

“Thank you Carnegie, I could not have done it without you!” > Suzanne Lothian

Suzanne Lothian BA (Hons) Business Management I would thoroughly recommend Carnegie. The tutors on the degree programme are all very knowledgeable, helpful and supportive. It’s great being able to study locally at Carnegie without having to travel into Edinburgh and because you are also a student of Edinburgh Napier, you get full on-line access to all their resources as well as Carnegie’s. The class sizes are quite small which enables everybody to gel better and it allows you to get to know your tutors and for them to get to know you. All lectures, tutorials and exams are held at Carnegie which makes life easy.

I have had the added experience of being able to study my final two modules at Edinburgh Napier University. Whilst I am really enjoying being there, it has been a shock to the system as the first lecture I went to contained 220 students! I am in no doubt, if it had not been for Carnegie, I would not have had the positive learning experience that I have had and I would not have the qualifications and awards that I have since received. Thank you Carnegie, I could not have done it without you!
