Directive Training is formed by two of the areas finest training mentors, to bring their experience and skill to local Companies
Tony Dickens and Melisa Money joined together to form a company, Directive Training.
Their story started in 1997 when they worked together for the local authority delivering IT hardware and software training to the corporate sector and apprentices. Both highly qualified and professional they went separate ways, Tony started a local tech company, growing it to £1.7m turnover and Mel continued delivering training to clients in the public and private sector including SME’s, NHS and blue chip companies.
Tony says “having seen, in my business, some of the training delivered by out of area training providers I knew there was scope for more professional training in the market”
The training they deliver is mainly IT software skills, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and other software such as Adobe, Macromedia and Apple
They are constantly working on a variety of other courses too. Focussed at business, the duo can deliver presentation skills, business branding, social media, sales, body language, and leadership management.
The offering differs from others, in that they provide a training needs analysis prior to learning. They then follow up on some courses a few weeks later with a free workshop; this checks learning and can be used to consolidate any queries once the candidate has had time to digest what they have learnt.
Directive help out the community in HU10 by offering some public courses locally, including new iPad user, computers for beginners, ‘I need help with my iPad’, presentation skills for the less confident.
“The local community in the area deserves a lovely bunch of people to help them with their technology advice, we are not here to fix their technical problems, more to offer pointers and training” says Mel.
They are based in Willerby Square, and are well placed to serve all of Hull & East Yorkshire, whether it be at your premises or our fantastic on site Training facility
