WHY TIME MANAGEMENT TRAINING ?
- Procrastinate ?
- Often run late ?
- Overschedule yourself ?
- Feel that you are forced to rush jobs ?
- Lack real control of your workload ?
Time management has been in existence for a long time, but the term creates a false impression because time cannot be managed : we can only manage ourselves and our use of time.
So time management is actually self management, and all time management skills can be learned.
We teach you how to build time management techniques into your daily routine so you can recognize and solve personal time management problems, staying in control of your working day.
The result ? Your working day will be less stressful, more productive and much more enjoyable.

With our latest Time Management courses, you get free e-learning revision for a full 12 months after your class so you can reinforce the knowledge you have gained.
Access is simple: go to www.activia.co.uk/login/ and log in using your email address. This will give you free access to our e-learning revision modules.
Note: These have been developed and written exclusively by Activia to maximise effectiveness, by matching the e-learning exactly to what you cover in class. We hope you have fun, on the day of the course and with honing your knowledge afterwards!
All Activia time management training courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure up to date provision and constantly improving standards of content. Our Time Management training is interactive and classroom-based which maximises learning through the ability to ask questions and discuss specific issues.
Maximum class size for Time Management 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.
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.
Note: Please allow 1 - 2 working days for your confirmation and invoice.
If you are coming to our centre, dress code is smart casual. Refreshments in the form of tea/coffee will be provided for morning and afternoon breaks, but please note that we do not provide lunch. The timetable is as follows:
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 !
For training at your offices, this itenerary can be varied by prior arrangement.
With your Time Management training course from Activia, you get a free workbook, so you can review and revise afterwards to reinforce your knowledge. With all Time Management courses, you are also given 12 months access to free e-learning revision which will further help you to reinforce the lessons you have learned.
Every delegate on a Time Management course also gets an Activia Training Attendance Certificate.
