Action Based Training

Bridgwater & Taunton College’s Cannington Activity Centre — the home of Action Based Training — is renowned throughout the UK as an outstanding provider of education and skills training.

We believe that the most valuable and memorable learning occurs while the body and mind are actively engaged in tasks.

“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”

Our tailor-made programmes provide:

  • A unique and award-winning approach
  • An inclusive learning environment
  • Targeting of key learning outcomes
  • A range of activities
  • Reinforcement of key behaviours and skills that a team leader/supervisor/team member or apprentice may require in his or her role.

Groups who attend Action Based Training, open their minds and expand their thinking. Outside of the workplace creativity flows, and ideas develop. The wide range of activities employees participate in are developmental and challenging, ensuring the whole group contributes to problem solving and feedback, creating valuable skills they transfer to the workplace.

Action Based Training, what the people who matter say!

“I specifically requested a challenging, but not too adrenaline-based session, and through consultation with us, the Activity Centre team put together a comprehensive two day programme which encompassed elements of theory and practical tasks for everyone to take part in.

“The team quickly built a rapport with the group and were able to provide valuable feedback on performance, and relate it back to team theories at each stage of the event. I can’t recommend the team enough, they were well-planned and professional, but flexible enough to adapt to situations as they arose.”
— HR Manager, University of Essex.

“Excellent facilities, great sessions but more importantly…brilliant instructing! We would really love to return.”
— Aspire Co-ordinator.

“I was impressed with how the instructors applied the feedback to our team and gave us food for thought in a very clear way."
— Local Admin Team Manager

“A huge thank you for the day you organised for us. It was wonderful…everyone wants to come again.”
— Promise, Langport.

“Having had reservations about the team building day, I was pleasantly surprised with the range of tasks we were asked to do as a team, which really got us working together to solve problems. It really brought us closer together as a group and changed the dynamics of how we normally work in the office.”
— Marketing Coordinator.
