How is this year’s graduate development programme shaping up?

June 14, 2012 : General Team Building

As the UK’s educational establishments start gearing up towards end of term graduation ceremonies, many organisations have already started the process of engaging the fresh new batch of talent who have been selected to ‘cross the divide’ into the world of work for the first time.

Maximillion has implemented a wide range of graduate and apprentice development programmes for major companies throughout the UK. Through our expertise in team-based personal development  we have been commissioned by our clients to design their annual residential induction and development programmes for graduates.

Each programme is very much custom-designed by Maximillion in partnership with client HR and senior management to ensure that the new intake receives the best possible grounding and support before they take their first steps on the career ladder in their new workplaces. Typically the programmes involve:

  • Dovetailing internal corporate elements with facilitated input sessions on relevant aspects of personal and professional development. Designing these around client competency frameworks (values, supporting behaviours) and to promote key business messages.
  • Experiential team-based learning activities, along with profiling tools and models to bring new knowledge and learning to life.
  • ‘Personal goal maps’ co-authored with each participant through professional one-to-one coaching support, which are designed to support individual learning plans and appraisals back in the workplace.
  • Pre-event project management of programme and on-site event management services during the programme; delegate managementvenue booking and liaison, H&S etc.
