Reading Time: < 1 minuteWith a number of new franchisees committed to setting up their business, but with training booked during COVID 19 lockdown, things were looking uncertain for this group of entrepreneurs eager to embark on their new journey.
So, in consultation with new members, No Letting Go has adapted its training academy to provide virtual training for new starters to avoid potentially long delays, caused by the uncertainty this pandemic brings.
The week residential course has been condensed into 4 shorter days via video conference, enabling teaching, discussions, demonstrations and practical exercises.
Director of Operations, Justine Tomlinson says “We were so impressed with the pragmatic attitude of this group of new recruits, who were really keen to make a start with their training and put themselves in the best possible position once the lockdown restrictions lift. Our training team have worked incredibly hard to adapt the program and make it suitable for remote training.
We have now run 2 virtual academies during the lockdown, and it’s amazing what you can collectively achieve when a group of determined individuals work together with a common goal and a dose of good humour!”
Out of adversity comes opportunity, and whilst No Letting Go plan to return to a residential course later in the year, advanced training modules will now be added to the program which can be conducted remotely, not only eliminating travel time & cost but giving members the flexibility of different levels of training when the want it.
In addition to moving the training academy online, virtual discovery days and find out more meetings for those interested in setting up a business have continued during this period. Justine Tomlinson adds “Whilst we are in uncertain times, many people who buy a franchise have been thinking about making that move for some time – so with lockdown providing us all with a little extra thinking time, it’s a perfect opportunity to seek out the right business partner”.
