Let's talk about Interview Skills

Recruiting the best talent can be challenging – from ensuring the interview process is fair and legal to making sure we ask the best possible questions to get the maximum amount of information out of the candidate.
Additionally, with a changing marketplace, we need to ensure the candidate has the best possible experience during the recruitment process so that your business is an employer of choice regardless of the outcome for the candidate – would they still want to work for you?

WHY ted Learning?

Our training is observational and participative, using teams of actors to bring it to life. We recognise that taking part in role-play is not for everyone, so we offer observational training – this is where two of our acting team demonstrate scenes related to the course and delegates observe and comment on the behaviors. Where a business is more confident working with actors, we take this to the next level with participative training so delegates get to practice their newly learnt skills.
