Team Building for Graduates

Accelerated Team Building & On-boarding Programmes for Graduates & Apprentices

Team Building for Graduates and Apprentices

In Short:

We design and deliver team building programmes for graduates and apprentices for induction and on-boarding programmes.  These programmes are for universities and colleges and for newly hired graduate/apprentice populations within business.  We also design and deliver personal development programmes for graduates and apprentices. 

The Need:

Graduate and apprentice programmes bring with them many challenges. Whether on a post-graduate programme, graduate development programme in business or as part of an apprenticeship scheme, academic success only goes so far. Your graduates and apprentices are now in the world of business and team working.  Their transition and on-boarding needs to be efficient and effective if they are to thrive.  They need to integrate quickly into teams, communicate effectively, lead relationships, and meet your customer’s needs.  They need to be self-starters, take ownership, and learn quickly.  They need to understand and live your company values.  They need to have high levels of emotional intelligence and resilience. 

Our Graduate Development Programes

  • Our graduate team building and on-boarding programmes are designed to help your new hires bridge the gap between academic ability and effective team-working; maximising the potential of your in-house programme and equipping participants with a credible tool box for use in the commercial environment.
  • We deliver a number of programmes from one-day accelerated relationship and team-building events to five-day outdoor experiential personal development and leadership programmes, and from single workshops to modular programmes which are delivered in tandem with your graduate and apprentice content.
  • We will work closely with you to design a graduate team building programme that meets your business needs,  learning outcomes and instils your company values.

“It was a very different experience to what I expected! It was a good way to approach ice-breaking situations away from the normal team building events.”

“Enlightening with enjoyable group activities that help me to get to know the other people in my group better both personally and professionally.”

“It has made me be more aware of the different approaches to a given task and how we can integrate different personalities to form the strongest possible team.”

“It would have taken me much longer than it has to develop this many relationships, and to the degree which I have developed them to.”
