SCTE Training

We are delighted to announce the launch of a new set of training courses which are free of charge for SCTE members - in conjunction with a career coaching company we are offering soft skills and mentoring training, starting now… another excellent membership benefit and incredible value for money. Invest in yourself and enrol on a course today - you have nothing to lose! 

Our next SCTE Human Skills training course takes place on 6 September in partnership with Borderless Performance at 2pm BST!
"The First 90 Days in a New Job" is free of charge to all SCTE Members.

What's our training like?

"It was a pleasure to attend your training course as it was delivered well, using a lot of common sense themes and delivered in a very refreshing way, in tune with our modern online way of thinking and working. The pace was fast enough to maintain interest but you took the time to gauge feedback and understanding, happy to reiterate points if needed, so that the next steps of the course flowed easily along. I would definitely attend more courses based on my first experience.” Jason Dando, SCTE Member.
