Leadership, Management & Business Training

Cerulean is a boutique learning and development company focused on providing carefully tailored training. We don’t do ‘sheep-dip’ training or ‘smile’ programmes, there’s no talk and chalk, just simple, practical training you can apply immediately. 

We are a group of learning and development specialists and psychologists who came together to provide carefully tailored training that can be applied immediately. Our trainers, facilitators and coaches have also held senior operational roles in either education or global corporate organisations and are educated to post-graduate level. This extensive experience brings extra value to our training and as many of us are also qualified psychologists (occupational and clinical), we can bring a deeper dimension to our work with you, no matter how simple your requirements.

We are experienced in delivering both classroom and live online sessions, together with e-learning and other interactive materials, which gives us easy access to a blended learning approach.

We specialise in the leadership and EDI&B (Equality, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging) agendas and everything we share with participants has its basis in the latest research and thinking. That said, we ensure our ideas and recommendations are realistic and we provide our learners with a safe and reflective space to think about the issues and develop the skills to tackle them effectively and more confidently.

We can help you with learning design, including Training Needs Analysis, Content Research, Script Writing, Instructional Design and Template Development and bespoke e-learning, including Design & Development, Cross-Platform Delivery, Conception to Completion and Legacy Course Conversion.

We have developed a range of workshops, programmes and bite-sized sessions to help you get the best from your people. Any of these can be tailored to your business requirements to support you in meeting your organisation’s objectives.

One of our favourite parts of our work is hearing feedback from participants about how they plan to make use of what they have learned!

What our clients say...

The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association

Annie Hourston - Head of Learning and Skills

"We were lucky to have Anna from Cerulean work with us to help us re-imagine our team vision and purpose, and to help us create a clear direction of travel. She spent time in advance to really understand what we were trying to achieve, and importantly, what was driving this. This resulted in a superb 2-day workshop where she showed an incredible knack of facilitating in an empathetic manner while somehow managing to maintain the energy in the room, keep us to time and on track! We can’t wait to start taking the next steps to move towards our newly created vision and help more people with sight loss live the life they choose. Thank you to everyone at Team Cerulean!"

ZF Services UK

Sally McNeill

"The level of expertise Lesley and her team bring to any course they design and deliver is second to none; they are attentive to the needs of the business and have a willingness to really understand what is happening in the company which adds real value to the learners and brings return on investment for the organisation."

Catalyst Housing

Jane Endersby

"Lesley Aitcheson co-ordinated this event from preparation meetings through to delivery and the occasion in August was a complete success in terms of achieving agreed objectives as well as making every participant feel involved and connected every step of the way. Feedback from delegates could not have been more fulsome in their praise for how Lesley made the experience insightful, challenging and, most importantly, fun. Many thanks Lesley, you have made my job much easier with your help in setting the scene for the next twelve months."
