Learning and Performance Institute recognises New Horizons Ireland's performance

New Horizons Ireland has been awarded the status of accredited learning provider by the LPI - Learning and Performance Institute for its commitment to high quality and process improvement in the provision of learning, development and training services to its clients.

As the only LPI accredited partner in Ireland, New Horizons Ireland has been committed to delivering leadership and professional development training all over the country lead by the best certified soft skills trainers available in the market. In 2019 more than 400 people attended one of our courses accredited by the Learning and Performance Institute.

See below the latest report from the Learning and Professionals Institute with New Horizons Ireland KPI’s.

Quality Management

As a well-established training company in the Country, New Horizons Ireland was able to outstand in KPI’s such as business stability, corporate integrity, and quality management, for example. They require extra efforts towards quality control and resources focused on delivering the best training experience possible for students guaranteeing that the companies are satisfied and meeting their goals.

According to Alan Deery, CEO of New Horizons Ireland the high performance it's a result of the efforts on getting the best trainers available who can identify the client’s needs and the best approach for each specific group. “We have been working closely with our clients to show them how the development of leadership and soft skills can leverage the performance of their teams on a broader level, despite their area. Leadership courses are not just for leaders, they are crucial for everyone in the company”, explained Deery.

Soft skills are in high demand and in a world dominated by automation, they will be even more essential in the upcoming years. The latest “Future Jobs Ireland 2019” report published by the Government of Ireland highlighted the importance of soft skills for the constant development of the Irish market. “The revolution in automation and digital technologies is radically reshaping the industry. Given the current and accelerating move towards automation and AI, it is likely that Ireland will need to rebalance its skills mix towards the most in-demand, for example, advanced cognitive and social and emotional skills”, states the report.

Skills such as the ability to communicate well, organisational, self-motivation, time management, emotional intelligence among others, are critical to succeed in the modern work environment. The “what workers want Ireland report 2019” published by Hays Recruitment found out that emotional intelligence is a foremost consideration for 43% of employers in Ireland, while 41% prioritize critical thinking for future roles. These are the type of skills that can be developed through training and by being exposed to leadership and professional development best practices.
