Providing Client Training
Tricia Wass Associates is able to deliver a variety of learning events. We will work collaboratively with you to develop bespoke training which meets the specific needs of your team or organisation, or you can attend one of our established training courses.
Our approach focuses on ensuring that effective learning is taking place, giving staff the confidence to put new skills and knowledge into practice once they return to the workplace.
To achieve that aim, we strive to make our training participative, relaxed, interesting and fun.
Management and Leadership
We have designed and developed a Management and Leadership course which has successfully gained level 3 OCN accreditation. This comprises of twelve credits and four distinct units:
• Understanding management and leadership
• Strategic management
• Understanding the organisation and management of Voluntary Sector organisations
• Reflection on personal learning.
This course has been delivered in a number of organisations and received excellent feedback.
Examples of other courses that have been delivered include:
Effective Team Working: across 26 primary care centres in Wandsworth over a three
Reflect and Recharge: a three day residential workshop that has been run on a regular basis with managers and senior officers from various health and social care sectors.
Developing Best Practice: with front line workers from teams working in domestic violence.
Middle Management Development Programme: with a diverse group of middle managers from the palliative care sector.
As a Trustee of the Sussex Beacon, Tricia worked with the management team individually and together, and with the Board of Trustees to help us think through our strategies and policies and to plan our long-term objectives. I was particularly struck by Tricia’s ability to work with people at different levels across the organisation, to bring people together and get them to work together, and her skill at drawing out issues from a mass of information provided at meetings and at workshop events and making this information coherent and, in particular, useable.
I have worked with Tricia Wass for more than 8 years and during that time we’ve worked on a variety of projects together. The joy of working with Tricia is that she truly listens to what you want to achieve and helps to facilitate this in order to achieve the organisation’s objectives. Tricia is constantly aware of the changing agenda and I have found her always able to provide the support and facilitation we have needed.”
It’s a joy to work with Tricia. She has facilitated our annual staff and board away day for the last three years. It’s great to have a safe pair of hands guiding us through policy debates and various action plans. She is such a positive influence on our work. She‘s very much part of the Shape family!
