Notes: Bespoke courses can be split into smaller half-day units, but they must be booked in pairs: one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
If a half-day course is listed, again these must be booked in pairs: you must of course double the half-day rate to get the full day rate.
Then you simply multiply the full day rate by the number of days to get the total cost.

DATES & VENUES

Dates and Venues for our Public Classes

In general, with our Early Bird pricing, the earlier you book, the lower the price.
Our small class sizes mean that classes are often full, so it's best to book as soon as you can.
Don't be disappointed by leaving it too late!

If you see classes at higher prices set to run over the next few days, these are empty classes and if you book, you may be the only delegate attending.

NOTE : prices are per delegate and exclude VAT.

General Information

All Activia interview training courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure up to date provision and constantly improving standards of content. Our HR and Recruitment training is interactive and classroom-based which maximises learning through the ability to ask questions and discuss specific issues.

Class Sizes

Maximum class size for HR and Recruitment 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.

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.

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:

1:00

ONE HOUR LUNCH BREAK

3:15

MID-AFTERNOON BREAK

Note: break times can vary according to the needs of the training, and course duration for smaller class sizes are usually shorter because fewer delegates have fewer questions !
