Minute Taking Made Easy
All Activia training courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure they provide up to date and constantly improving standards of content. Our Business Writing training is interactive and classroom-based which maximises learning through the ability to ask questions and discuss specific issues.
Maximum class size for courses is 10 delegates, which ensures that attendees get adequate time for personal attention from the instructor. At some of our centres, the maximum class size is 12 delegates.
Note that we never cancel our scheduled classes -- even if there are only one or two delegates -- so once you have booked, your place is assured.
Private (closed) classes can be booked at our centres, subject to the same maximum class sizes, if you want to use our facilities for your training.
For training at your offices, we can deliver classes of up to 15 delegates, though with bigger class sizes you must understand that there is less time for questions from delegates, and this may affect the quality of their experience.
How to book
Note: With non-credit card bookings you must sign and return a Booking Form before we can confirm your training.
Also note: If you are a private individual you must pay by credit card at the time of booking.
The confirmation process
Note: Please allow 1 - 2 working days for your confirmation and invoice.
What happens on the day
If you are coming to our centre, dress code is smart casual. Refreshments and a free buffet lunch will be provided, but please note that, as a training company who relies on caterers, we are unable to reliably provide for differing dietary requirements, so if you are in any doubt then please bring your own. The timetable is as follows:
Note: break times can vary according to the needs of the training, and course duration for smaller class sizes can be shorter because fewer delegates have fewer questions !
For training at your offices, this itenerary can be varied by prior arrangement.
