UX Training & Mentoring

If you’re looking to harness the power of UX in your organisation we can help you embed user centred design thinking, upskill your team and improve outcomes on your digital projects.

Over the last 20 years we’ve worked on projects with organisations like the University of Bristol, The Institute of Environmental Analytics, NHS, the Department of Health, Hitachi and Saco.

We ran a 10 week part-time UX design course for 3 years in partnership with digital skills accelerator DevelopMe, that taught the key skills required to practice UX to those transitioning into the UX industry, or those wanting to upskill in-role.

We’ve distilled all our knowledge and experience into a portfolio of training workshops, talks and mentoring.

Why harness the power of UX in your organisation?

UX is proven to:

  • Increase collaboration
  • Reduce time to delivery
  • Decrease risk to projects/clients
  • Create happy users
  • Deliver return on investment

In-context training workshops

We offer “in context” training workshops that teach UX thinking techniques and practical processes on the job.

In context – we believe that learning new skills works best if you can immediately apply it to your day-to-day. We tailor our workshops to your current or forthcoming projects, training your core team to apply UX thinking from day one to real-life situations rather than abstract examples.

Topics:

  • UX Essentials
  • User needs and Information Architecture
  • Research planning and user testing
  • Sketching and wireframing to test ideas
  • How to make your digital offering user centred
  • User research techniques that anyone can deploy
  • How to run design sprints

“Working alongside Ollie and Becky has been a tremendous help for improving all aspects of my skills, particularly regarding effective communication with both clients and colleagues, and creating a sleek user experience.”

“It was perfectly pitched in terms of content and length and covered a lot without feeling rushed or overwhelming.”

“It was a brilliant workshop. I learnt how to analyse priorities when considering UX development and really make the most out of internal resources.”
