Oakridge offers more training opportunities and skills-growth through our partnership with the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce (GMCC), to provide high-quality training courses through its Chamber Train initiative to support its aim to broaden the range of skills service available to Chamber Members and the wider business community.

GMCC partnered with Oakridge because of our excellence as a training provider in developing and facilitating high quality, short, sharp and practical masterclasses, designed to improve the performance of individuals and performance in the workplace. Additionally, GMCC wanted to ensure the professional training courses they provide cover four key business objectives:
1. Increase profile, grow sales.
2. Improve team performance.
3. Improve business processes to get more for less.
4. Compliance: reducing risk.

With this in mind, we’ve designed ongoing high-impact programmes for GMCC members, and those wishing to attend as non-members, which we will be facilitating:
