Our Graduate Development Solutions

We draw from a wide range of exercises and skills to meet the requirements of your graduate development programme. Inputs might include coaching, business project simulations, the use of psychometric tools, action learning sets, peer feedback and structured personal reflection. We complement inputs with a comprehensive range of mentally stimulating and physically challenging tasks to aid learning. We also make crucial links between this personal development and its application in the workplace to maximise performance of your graduate talent and build business capacity.

What does a Brathay graduate development programme mean for your business?

We capitalise on your graduates’ development opportunity by seamlessly linking our 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 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.
