Tailored to your organisation

Working with Corndel is perfect for us as they work in true, long term partnership with us, immersing themselves in our culture and organisational context.

Brett TerryPeople Director, NSPCC

I have been impressed by the flexibility Corndel has been able to provide. They include Phoenix terminology and methodology alongside the standard thinking to provide business context. This has also enabled us to involve Phoenix business leaders within the course to talk about how we manage projects internally. This approach has been popular with our course delegates as it means they are not only learning the “theory” but also how this is applied in practice within the Phoenix Project Portfolio.”

Sian PowellDelivery Support Manager, Phoenix Group

Corndel have been super to work with, easy to communicate with and are really client focused. Their core values are align with ours, so it’s natural for us to choose them for our Apprenticeship.”

This is a really important initiative for Hogarth. It’s important that we carry on with the programme during these times. The course content is strong, the programme is valuable and I’m looking forward to seeing the impact is has. Thank you to Corndel for turning this around and enabling us to launch this virtually.”

Richard GlassonCEO, Hogarth

The highest level of professional support. Nothing is too difficult and they are always on hand to help with any of the challenges that may arise when working with a large team based across the country.”

Jayne JamesCapability Development Manager, Royal Mail

Working with Corndel over the past 2.5 years we have seen the language change throughout our organisation. Our people reference tools and frameworks when they discuss business challenges and conversations are inquisitive and directly linked to our business strategy. Corndel are a pleasure to work with. Everyone wants to do a great job and is qualified to do a great job. This is a highly effective partnership.”

Danielle VergeHR Director, Aliaxis

Capita has been working with Corndel for almost a year now and 450 Capita colleagues have benefited from joining their programmes. This year we have enrolled 100 learners onto the Level 4 Diploma in Project Management. The programme has been seamlessly adapted to 100% virtual delivery of workshops and the personalised one-to-one coaching, a feature of all Corndel courses, is proving to be more valuable than ever.

We’re hearing great things about how this highly practical programme, which is tailored to Capita, is already building learners’ confidence in formalising their approach to and management of a range of projects. I would highly recommend the programme to those looking to scale-up project management capability at such a critical time.
