People Development

Our Approach

IBP has a strong focus on learning and but with a strong practical emphasis, based on our experience as practitioners. Our particular areas of expertise include:

  • Sustainable communities and regeneration
  • Innovation
  • Community engagement
  • Economic development

In addition to this, our facilitation skills are frequently used by clients to assist with Awaydays and similar events.

Some examples of our work

  • Delivery of training workshops on "Sustainable Communities" and "Community Engagement" for candidates working towards a Certificate in Leading Sustainable Communities on behalf of the Homes and Communities Agency.
  • Delivery of a learning programme on Outcome Based Planning for Community Reference Group members on behalf of Glasgow Community Planning Partnership.
  • Delivery of a number of "Introduction to Economic Development" workshops for new staff and business advisers across the Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise networks.
  • Delivery of workshop programmes on leadership and management issues for the sabbaticals team at Glasgow University SRC.
  • Acting as an observer and assessor at a range of Assessment and Development Centres delivered by the Academy for Leadership and Management, with whom we work on a range of people and organisational development assignments.
  • Delivery of team and partner awaydays for organisations such as Community Planning Partnerships, Local Authorities and government departments including the Department for Business.

The above is, of course, only a small section of the people development assignments that we have undertaken and we are always happy to discuss your specific requirements, without obligation.
