Our Approach

At Lantern Training, we believe firmly in the importance of practical application and role play in effective learning and changing behaviour. We take a very interactive and impactful approach to our training courses; during every session, everyone is challenged to think about how they currently operate, discuss what they find difficult, talk about what they could do better and practice all the skills and techniques that we give them. We believe this is what makes training at Lantern uniquely different.

  • Professional soft skills training courses and team building programmes either at our own training centre, at your offices or elsewhere
  • Tailor-made learning solutions to suit every business and individual
  • Cost-effective training designed to make a real difference
  • Wide range of quality-assured courses
  • Fun, interactive training which combines the latest thinking with role-play and practical experience
  • Specialist, experienced trainers

“85% of job success comes from having well-developed soft skills and people skills. Only 15% comes from technical skills and knowledge.”
