Bristol-based consultancy practice, Value Projects Limited, forges training links with Danish hospitality group
Through its partner in Denmark, Mike Hohnen, Value Projects, a leading consultancy practice based in Bristol, has launched a management development programme with Danske Konferencecentres, a leading conference centre provider in Denmark.
The management development programme, entitled GROW, which will initially lead to participants gaining a Professional Certificate, is accredited through the University of Chester. Value Projects is partnered with the University to offer and deliver accredited Work-Based Action Learning programmes. The launch of the accredited GROW programme is the first programme to be launched under the Employer Engagement project. This project created an alliance in March 2007 between Value Projects Limited and the University’s School of Lifelong Learning and has been funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) as part of a major project to support the extension of Work -Based Learning nationally and internationally.
Dr Richard Hale, Managing Director of Value Projects commented: “We are delighted to partner with Mike Hohnen and work with him and his team to provide accredited work-based leadership development. That we can extend the benefits of the HEFCE-funded project beyond the UK at such an early stage in the project is a real boost.”
Mike Hohnen added: “I have to say that I’m proud that we are now able to launch a 3 year management developing programme with Danske Konferencecentre. In Denmark the press is buzzing with talk about the need for diplomas in management, and our new type of educational programme reflects this need for constantly improving leadership. The project has already been received with great enthusiasm, and we can hardly wait to develop this concept with our British partner.”
Value Projects are developing links with both corporate organisations and training consultancies where they are able to offer University of Chester accreditation for Work-Based Learning.
