Learning & Development
What does unlimited team training entail?
Unlimited access to over 29 subject areas and 55 courses throughout the year and a personal learning and development plan for your team. This amounts to £18k of training per employee, subsidised to make it affordable for your team. Ask us for a quote to get started.
Can you create private courses just for our team?
We have almost 30 courses available in our curriculum and all of these can be adapted for private courses or just run as they are privately. Private courses can be face to face as well as digital. For a quote, just get in touch.
What is the most cost effective way of buying training?
If you would like to attend multiple courses, you would be better off purchasing our Unlimited bundle. This gives you a significant discount on the face value of the courses.
What budget should we allocate to learning & development?
We see different brands operate budgets differently – some allocate a value per head (e.g £1-2,000 per head per year); others allocate a % salaries (e.g 5% of annual salaries as a pot). Either way, most brands will budget for some spend. We can then work with founders to ensure they are divvying up the spend in the best way to serve the needs of the business and the team members.
How can we trust that the courses are worth the money?
We know it can be hard to spend on an unknown but this is why we ask for testimonials from previous attendees. We have never had a person attend a YF training course and not give it a 5 star rating and are incredibly proud of the quality we curate.
What if I spend money on training someone and they leave the business?
What if you do not train someone and they stay in your business? We are big believers that employers have a responsibility to enable their employees to be successful in their roles – ‘learning on the job’ is great but will always come with it risk, missed best practice and often wasted time and money.
Why should I invest in my team?
Your team are the difference between success and failure of your business. Not only is it critical that they are actually capable of delivering the ambitions you have for the business, but we need to ensure they feel supported and developed by their employer. Brands that do not invest in the development of their team will not attract and retain the best talent.
Are the courses face to face or online?
After the success of our online training courses in 2020 and fantastic feedback from attendees, we have moved all Young Foodies training online. This means less time travelling and more time learning. Plus it allows people all over the world to benefit from our learning.
We have a big team - what is the best way to work with you?
If you are looking for a full L&D solution for your big team, get in touch as we have a number of total team packages that makes learning and development fun, affordable and embedded into your company culture.
