Why customised training?

Start building your own bespoke knowledge solution today!


Learning objectives can be tied to your chosen real-world scenarios, helping your teams apply their new knowledge more readily.


Your key stakeholders engage with the learning or consultancy solution, crucial for maximising learning effectiveness.


A customised learning solution embodies the elements of your company's strategies, and how your technology platforms are configured making it unique to your organisation.


Your audience is able to remove less relevant elements, and add detail to more important ones greatly enhancing relevance, and return on time and budget investment.


Solutions are delivered to an audience at a time that best suits your organisations calendar.


Delivery is adaptable, with instructors being able to take away feedback from one day or one session of training, and use it to enhance current and future deliveries.


You choose the delivery setting, whether live remote, in class or hybrid - that suits your audience.


Customised live group training generally has a much lower price point per delegate, than attending a public event.

How we deliver?

Our delivery methods

Here at Tequate, we are flexible in our delivery methods, we will work with you to enable you to get the maximum from your course, whilst face to face training,  remains the gold standard, especially for technical hands on training, we are expert in remote delivery also. 

Live On-Premises​

We come to your site (or another site agreed by both parties) and the instructor delivers in person – beneficial for highly technical hands on courses.


Wherever possible we can provide cloud hosted recordings of your event, for attendees to review content and potentially for others to view course later.


Deliver on premises, but using AV equipment and delivery platform for mixed live/remote audience. Requires room for AV setup and connectivity. Can be used for technical or non technical. This is often preferred for highly technical courses with hands on elements.

Live Virtual

We deliver the course live over an agreed virtual platform, - zoom recommended, but teams or others also possible. Can be used for all courses, technical or non technical.This is often preferred for highly technical courses with hands on elements
