Choosing the
right solution
for you

Build your own programme

If you’re looking for a bespoke solution, we’ll work with you to design a programme that’s right for your specific needs.

Together we will map out your learning objectives, understand the audience, cultural context and agree budget and timelines that work for you.

Deliver our core programmes

Delivering our core programmes in-house allows you to access our ready-made, award-winning transformational leadership programmes, but with the benefit of being able to tailor them completely to your organisation’s needs.

The Professional Apprenticeship Programme

The Professional Apprenticeship Programme offers a fast-track leadership development opportunity for the future leaders of your business, funded through the apprenticeship levy.

Build your own programme

If you’re looking for a tailored approach, we can work together to build the right programme for you.

Bringing together our award-winning talent and leadership development expertise, with your organisational expertise means we’re able to design a programme that addresses all of your training, leadership and cultural needs – and delivers lasting change for your organisation.

You may need to ensure a particular message is conveyed, you may want more face-to-face development or virtual sessions. Your programme may need to dovetail into another initiative or support several different audiences; you may want to run a Director’s Cut to maximise the engagement of the senior team. Whatever your needs, we can work with you to bring the Ivy House transformational learning experience to your organisation.

Our core programmes

We’re able to deliver our core award-winning programmes as in-house solutions. These can be run as ‘off-the-shelf’ programmes, or completely tailored to meet your organisation’s needs. This may mean changing the way they are delivered, adding job-shadowing opportunities or building in context coaching. We will also work with you to build an internal support mechanism, that means you experience maximum benefit from your investment.

“The Ivy House Programme is one of the highest value schemes I have come across. The calibre of the team, delegates and the programme itself blew me away. I highly recommend the Ivy House Programmes to any organisation who wants to take talent development seriously.”

Dale Thoroughgoood, Learning & Talent Development Manager, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer

“When looking for a partner to deliver our in-house emerging leader programme, Ivy House blew everyone else out of the water. Their knowledge of their audience, experiential approach and the level of support to embed the learning back into the business was unlike anything else out there. The Aviva Emerging Leader Programme is now by far the most successful and oversubscribed programme we run – and my proudest legacy.”

Bernadette Bruton, Global Talent and Organisational Development Director, Aviva

“I have received consistent feedback from our participants that The Programme is life-changing and, they are so grateful to be learning it now. On sharing their learning with their bosses and peers, they are now wishing they had learnt it years ago!”

Debbie Ash, Group VP Talent Management & Organisational Development, RS Components

“Our delegates gained so much from The Ivy House Programmes. It opened their eyes to different ways of thinking, behaving and leading – giving them the clarity about the kind of leader they want to be”

James Johnson, Head of Talent, RBS

The Ivy House approach

Developing your future leaders

We have worked in the leadership-development field for over 20 years and won countless awards for our work. The Ivy House programmes are the best we’ve ever created, making a profound difference to how your brightest emerging talent lead themselves and others.

Our programmes will develop, engage and retain your high potentials; driving your business forward and developing your leaders of tomorrow.

Turning high potential into high performance

We give your emerging talent the knowledge, skills and confidence to step up; taking ownership over their impact, performance and actively seeking opportunities to learn and develop – driving themselves and your business forward.

Talent retention and engagement

How often are your brightest talent walking out of the door?  Our programmes improve talent engagement and retention, creating a tribe of skilled leaders with a renewed level of commitment to your organisation, and a clear plan for their career.

Succession planning and future proofing

Our programmes develop extraordinary leaders.  Leaders who are ready and excited for their next step and leaders with the competence, determination and vision to lead your business now and in the future.

Transformational Leadership

At Ivy House we create a special type of leader – the authentic, collaborative, change-ready type; culture carriers who can inspire and lead brilliant teams; leaders that people actually want to follow and pioneers who are equipped to lead us into a brighter tomorrow.

Help us create change

We can’t do it alone

The way we’re developing young people is not working. It’s time for a different path.

A path that proactively enables social mobility, embraces diversity and means that your background is no longer the key determinant of your success. A path that creates a collaborative, resilient, purpose-led generation: young people who create lives they love and make meaningful contributions to our communities, organisations and society. It’s time to put human development at the heart of education.

This change requires socially driven, courageous organisations to play their part.

The question is, are you ready to play yours?
