The IT Trainer were initially commissioned by Motorpoint in May 2014 to provide a Microsoft Outlook workshop to the company’s Talent Management Programme employees (read about the Talent Management programme here: ) focusing on the Time Management element of the training.  The extremely positive feedback and success from this workshop led to the delivery of this training for several other employee groups training; which is ongoing. The latest workshop took place in July 2015 to the second Motorpoint Talent Management Programme group.  Danny Spicer, Business Support Supervisor said of the training

“I have changed the way I manage my emails by deleting unnecessary ones and putting anything important in a folder, and I have to say it has been amazing and worked wonders for me. I have 0 emails in my Inbox, I feel less stressed, and the learning process has helped a great deal.”

The relationship between Motorpoint and The IT Trainer was enhanced by the ongoing delivery of a series of individual 1 to 1 training days, at each of the 9 Motorpoint sites across the UK.  This training is delivered in the style of our ‘Floor walking’ service, whereby our trainer spends time with a number of individuals on site each day, ensuring that the training delivered is specifically geared to the needs of each individual, addressing genuine business issues and providing each delegate with transferable skills in the Microsoft Office product set.  Each of the 9 sites will have either 2 or 3 days of this type of training, this training project has received very positive feedback from Senior Management at Motorpoint.

Clare Bell, Learning & Development Manager at Motorpoint, commented, “The IT Trainer created a commendable impression with their first training delivery, so we had no hesitation in commissioning them to be our preferred supplier of ongoing IT Training across the company.  We were particularly impressed by the flexibility of the training provided, ranging from group Microsoft Outlook workshops delivered in a classroom environment, to the individual sessions at all our locations – all the training covers the skill levels of all our employees – from Foundation to Expert.  We envisage a long-term relationship with The IT Trainer and would not hesitate in recommending them as a supplier of high quality IT training to cover all employee skills gap requirements.”
