A training methodology that works.

As well as the standard learning principles of applied adult learning and effective reinforcement through workshop based activity, Drake Training incorporates its own methodology which has been derived from over 23 years of professional development and executive training. The STAR methodology is applied to every Drake Training course; it commences with the identification of existing knowledge, moves on to building skills and techniques and is completed by relating learning to the workplace and committing to behavioural change.
