Charity implements new management training programme

The Zoological Society of London has selected GBS Corporate Training to deliver management training courses at the society's head office at London Zoo.

The animal conservation charity says the management courses will form part of a planned approach to provide structured management development within the organisation.

The charity, which is made up of five operating divisions including London and Whipsnade Zoos, has selected GBS Corporate Training to run the new Introductory Certificate in Management and the Introductory Diploma in Management courses. The courses include modules on managing information, communication skills, working with others, setting objectives and the importance of customer focus.

The training courses will take the form of monthly one-day workshops, held over the space of seven months, and will involve delegates taking part in interactive classroom sessions along with reading, web-based research and assignment writing.

Karen Turnbull, training and HR manager for The Zoological Society of London, said: "We selected GBS Corporate Training as it showed significant commitment to tailoring the introductory courses to suit our managers' individual needs - for example relating them to relevant environmental issues for us.

"At present about 20 managers will be taking part but we aim to extend our relationship with GBS Corporate Training as we develop our commitment to implementing a structured training programme."

Patricia Davies, group marketing manager at GBS Corporate Training said: "Linking management training with a formally recognised qualification was extremely important to London Zoo as it wants to ensure that all training and development is now approached in a structured way.

"Over the next few years the society will continue to invest in staff learning and development and we are delighted that it has chosen to work with us to achieve this."
