The Chartered Insurance Institute is hosting a course to teach firms how to increase their staff’s skill levels on a tight budget by using colleagues as coaches.

The half-day session, on June 16, will cover why it is important to continue staff development despite the cost and pressure on budgets.

It will identify who within the company should become a coach and the best areas of learning to focus on.

The CII says that coaching staff will increase productivity and staff retention as well as boost morale and that the course is suitable for anyone responsible for staff development, including line managers.

Speakers include the people behind motivational training company Tree of Knowledge and coaching expert Carol Braddick of the Graham Braddick Partnership.

The event will be held at the CII’s London office and those att- ending will earn 15 unstructured continual professional development points.

KJ Development founder Katherine Jones, who helped develop the course, says: “The current econ- omic climate has driven organisations to take a creative approach to delivering training, forcing many to explore options for facilitating learning in-house. This course will help them do that.”

Lowes Financial Management managing director Ian Lowes says: “Even the most efficient firms will have untapped resources that can be hard to spot, so something which prompts you to look at how to tap them is helpful.”
