27 December 2018 - RPS Partnership
2018 has been a fantastic year for RPS Partnership and as it draws to a close, we reflect on where we have been and what we have been doing. It has been a busy year and we are looking forward to an even busier year in 2019. We are proud of everyone we have trained this year; from global NGOs to oil and gas corporations as well as international media houses and governments.
We would like to thank our clients and our partners for their support throughout this year.
We look forward to working with you again in the coming year.
We have worked as far as Indonesia and Thailand in one global direction to Mexico and USA in the other, delivering training to national and international staff who work and live in many countries inbetween on several continents.
2018 has seen our consultants working with senior management teams both in the UK and Europe, enbabling them through workshops and training to optimise their duty of care to their staff working in tricky places around the world. We have assisted them so that they could take ownership of dealing with a crisis within their organisations both in their hub country and overseas. This saved them money as well as gave confidence to their staff.
We have taken our hostile environment training courses (HET and HEFAT/HEAT) to Mexico, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Lebanon, Tunisia and most recently to the Kurdish region of Iraq. It is amazing how different each course was and how much course participants learn from each other as well as from our experienced mixed gender training teams. We, as trainers, always learn something every time we run a training course and we always ensure that any interesting snippets of information are passed on and incoporated back into our training from whereever we are in the world.
We have also run bespoke courses for clients, responding to their needs. Our Sexual Agression Awareness courses have been well received and we have run these in the USA as well as UK to enable staff to understand the implications of gender bias and the impact that sexual agression has in the workplace. Our sensitive female trainers have also run Lone Female Traveller courses and are set to run more this coming year. Single gender courses allow course particpants to have a safe space where they can ask those questions which they may not feel able to in a mixed gender classroom, as well as catering for local sensitivities. We ensure that clients get what they need for their staff and with our mixed gender training teams we can cater for any type of training anywhere in the world.
Other courses we have developed this year have included our Family Liaison and Support (in a crisis) workshops as well as our trauma courses for First Responders. We have also developed our Surveillance and Surveillance awareness training programmes which enable those working with sensitive clients to be better preprared to keep themselves and their contacts safe; this particularly applies to the media and journalists workinig in investigative roles.
We are especially proud this year of our work to train trainers (Training of Trainers - ToT), where we have built capacity in Libya, Pakistan, Egypt and Indonesia, so that national staff can deliver their own training in their own local language. We have trained new trainers as well as experienced ones, teaching and enhancing their ability to deliver first class training wherever they are and in whatever environment they may find themselves in. Our ToT courses teach the teachers/trainers to teach in high and low tech environments, so that their student learn effectively whether the electricity works or not!
We plan to expand these programmes under the guidance of our qualified teachers and trainers in 2019. contact us if you are interested in learning more about this fantastic initiative on email@example.com
2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year and we would like to also thank our hard working consultants and trainers, as well as our management team, as we continue to deliver our successful workshops, trainig programmes and courses throughout the world.
