About Us

Spectrum Training Services was established in 1998 - We design and deliver competency based training programmes. We know how easy it is for incompetence to walk through the door as a result of poor recruitment practice,and how that incompetence is accommodated through ineffective approaches to performance management.

We design blended learning solutions to address:- Compliance Requirements- Change Scenarios- Strategic Initiatives- Talent Development- On Boarding- Skills DevelopmentSo, whether you need an approach to training that develops the competence that your business needs, or a little support with competency based recruitment, perhaps guidance around how to implement a competency framework, simply contact us to chat about what's required.
