TRAINING Review Q3. 2023



With the expert skills of our colleagues at JCS, our team of brilliant trainers, Consultants and Associates, we develop and deliver Learning and Skills which are essential for individuals and businesses to keep abreast of and thrive in the changing world.


It is our pleasure to work with clients who recognise that by offering their colleagues and teams the opportunities to develop the skills they need, and to develop through training, upskilling, and reskilling brings benefits both mentally and workwise to the individual and many benefits to their business.


We would like to share some feedback with you from some of the candidates who recently attended training with us at JCS training.


Modular Manager Programme  – 3 days


  • I would defiantly recommend as it helped me be more confident in all parts of my job.
  • I benefited a lot by attending the programme. It was very useful and that has changed my whole perception of the role. I already see the benefits and outcome is very positive.
  • I think the course is really useful in day to day working environments, its full-on content regarding different leadership types and it’s nice to work with different people from different companies to see how they work within their teams


Dates Q1 2024 – confirmed running.


Module 1:  16.01.2024  Understanding and recognising elements of the management role

Module 2:  13.02.2024  Building and developing an effective team

Module 3:  12.03.2024  Managing and maintaining the performance of individuals and the team to achieve the business goals


Coaching Conversations

If one of your colleagues asked you to tell them one benefit of attending this workshop, what would you say?


  • Encourage, Ask, Reflecting, Summarise (EARS ):the benefit of attentive listening is a good skill to develop.
  • The Coaching workshops were very useful.
  • Many thanks, thoroughly enjoyed the course & found it beneficial.


Supervisor & Team Leader Workshop

  • You get to personalise the training, so it is relevant to you throughout the course and also create a personal action plan, so you leave the course with a sense of direction.
  • It helped me understand the importance of planning & motivation. I thought the skills matrix a great idea & this could be used in my department.


Managing Successful Meetings (experienced candidates with no formal training)


  • I found the course incredibly useful.
  • Great course would recommend to others

Adobe InDesign & Photoshop for Marketing L1


  • Very well explained by the trainer, happy to answer all questions and go through examples (company related). Great training.

Microsoft Excel L1  Foundation


  • Trainer was an amazing and I hope any future excel courses that I take are done by her.

Microsoft Excel L3  Advanced


  • Really interesting course, I learnt a lot.

NEWS UPDATE – May 2022

Not just an end user training company

Recently we were asked – What does JCS training offer?

JCS training has expertise in many areas of training and development we are known for delivering Microsoft Office training, Adobe, Business Skills & People Management training but we also offer many Software and Systems applications as well as bespoke Consultancy & Development.

Our bespoke/tailored work is very varied, such as….

Bespoke SharePoint so one particular team could get to grips with how their government department used this. Excel rebuild – Consultancy & Development for a Street Lighting tender template for a Major Street Lighting Company. Tailored SQL to an International Logistics company and delivered tailored GOOGLE APPS training to the UK’s largest building Company….and many more


Our Business Skills, People Management & Management Consultancy & Development, other than the generic scheduled training, is all bespoke.


So, the answer to the question – What does JCS training offer? – quite a lot.


JCS training – since 1995 – www.jcstraining.com



Instructor-led Training, Virtual Live Training, Blended Learning.


For many years JCS have been working with clients providing the best training delivery methods chosen to suit business objectives and the learning styles of the candidates. By offering training that is tailored and delivered using a mix of training delivery methods and splitting the training over a period of time rather than consecutive days adds endless benefits for the candidates and for business continuity.

Whist many L&D departments may question which training delivery methods would be best implemented they find that this can be based on many factors which all need consideration.  Possibly one of the most important being the expertise and knowledge of the training company they will be working with.   


Fully Equipped IT Room Hire – back to the classroom.

After a period of uncertainty and growing confidence, our facilities are now in great demand.

Since last March we have seen major changes within the Training Industry and JCS training responded. As well as classroom delivery we introduced Virtual Live training to all the IT, Project & Systems training we offer and are now delivering Blended Learning across our Management & Personal Development training.


Blended learning can feature multiple methods to help candidates learn more effectively than one method on its own. A blend of learning can combine eLearning, workplace post activities, live online training, group discussion, group coaching and classroom training. The mix of learning methods are chosen to meet with best learning style and ongoing expectations of the business.

Featured – The Modular Manager Programme – Blended Learning.

Managers need to quickly develop the ability to lead and manage teams to achieve the strategies and goals of their business. For those who have not previously carried out this role or who have not attended formal training it can be a daunting prospect. This modular programme introduces three of the most important disciplines that will support them in being about to do this.

They are:

  1. Understanding and recognising the basic elements of the management role
  2. Building and developing an effective team
  3. Managing and maintaining the performance of individuals and the team to achieve the business goals.

Through these pragmatic sessions’ candidates will learn to handle and deal with their most crucial resource – their people.

Blended delivery:

The Modular Manager Programme is delivered as blended learning made up of Live Tutor Lead Virtual Training sessions, E-Learning Modules, Post session activities, and Virtual Live group discussion.

The total training time is equivalent to 3 days training. Activities are set for completion by the candidates outside of the 3 days.

Training Platform:

The JCS training platform will allow easier interaction with candidates and they with the group, support materials will be posted, and post course candidates will have timed access to the training modules which support the training as part of their on-going development.  

What is group coaching?

Group coaching is an on-going conversation, which supports change over time.

NEW COURSE – Praxis Framework TM the most integrated Framework in the Market.

The Praxis Framework Foundation Certification – 3-day Virtual Live training.

The 3 days Virtual Live Training are delivered over a 3-4-week period.

(Delivery dates can be tailored for group training)

Praxis Foundation Certification   We are very excited to be offering Virtual training and certification covering the Praxis Framework TM.  Praxis covers many methodologies in one course, previously to cover Projects, Programmes & Portfolios candidates would have had to attend several courses.

The Praxis Framework Certification – Equivalent to three alternative courses.

You would need to take at least three separate project and programme certifications to reach the breadth of guidance provided by Praxis framework. The content of other discipline overlap – forcing you to study duplicated themes and conflicting terminologies if you want a complete and rounded view of the discipline. Being comprehensive, Praxis removes repetition by covering all the key areas – combining the value of three accreditations into one. 

Example of how the Praxis Framework Certification strips out duplication:

  • If you chose to become a certified PRINCE2 or MSP practitioner, both have similar process models but use different terminology, so you would learn what is essentially duplicate information. With the Praxis Framework certifications, you learn about the process model once
  • Taking Risk Management as an example theme, it covered by many introductory courses such as PRINCE2 and APM’s PFQ. The fundamental nature of managing risk does not vary between programmes and projects, therefore Praxis Framework Certifications cover risk once and explains how it is applied to different contexts. The same can be said of other themes, Business Case, Organisation, Planning and Control.
  • Documents specified in PRINCE2 and MSP are also very similar. When defining the context of Business Case and Stakeholder Management Plan or Strategy, the basic structure is no different in a project than in a programme. Therefore, the Praxis Framework Certification removes document duplication.

By stripping out the duplication, the Praxis Framework courses can offer training on all aspects of programme and project management in one course.

Group Company F2F training also available
