Do you want your graduate talent to help grow your business?

You want to help your graduates maximise their potential and the impact they have on profitability, productivity and sustainability.

You want cost effective, high impact training and development that is tailored to your business and seamlessly integrated with what you offer already.

You want to see change and growth happening fast.

Here at Brathay we know that the successful integration and development of young, talented employees is essential to the sustainability of organisations and can have a profound effect on profitability and productivity. Our graduate development programmes help grow your graduates from today's emerging talent to the leaders of tomorrow.

We support graduates through this formative stage of their careers to help them meet their full potential.  Working with your organisation, we create graduate development programmes which complement the experience graduates receive in the workplace, to maximise their impact for your business, with an emphasis on interpersonal skills, effective behaviours and leadership approaches.

Our Graduate Development Solutions

Because no two programmes are the same, we draw from a wide range of exercises and skills to meet the requirements of your graduate development programme. Inputs might include coaching or mentoring, business project simulations, psychometric tools, action learning, peer feedback and structured personal reflection. These are achieved through a range of physically and mentally challenging tasks.  Crucially, we know that making links between this personal development and its application in the workplace is key to maximising performance of your graduate talent and building business capacity.

What a Brathay graduate development programme means for your business.

We maximise your graduates’ development opportunity by seamlessly integrating our development courses with your own ongoing development programmes. We tailor what we offer to make the best possible match with the needs of both your graduates and your business, often integrating pre and post programme development in your place of work so that graduates are fully prepared for their development programme and to enhance the application of their learning afterwards.

Our development programmes can be facilitated on our 360 acre site at the head of Lake Windermere in the Cumbrian Lake District. This unique venue provides the perfect environment for your graduates to explore, develop and enhance their contribution to your business’ success. Equally we can deliver our Graduate Development programmes locally or in your place of work.
