What is MaTE?

MaTE is an innovative, interactive and engaging programme created by Develop Training and accredited by the ILM. Using a combination of theory based training sessions that focus on essential people skills, followed by innovative real-play scenario, delegates are able to gain an understanding of key management techniques and their practical application in the workplace.

What makes the MaTE Programme different?

MaTE takes the theory and puts it into practice within a controlled environment that reflects the delegates' work place and the day to day situations that they encounter with staff and customers. MaTE includes real-play scenario's that are tailored to the job role and sector of the delegate. This method uses actors to help bring the training to life and embed learning. Develop Training are experts in the delivery of Technical, Compliance and Safety Training across a range of industry sectors, meaning your chosen MaTE programme can be made relevant to your specific technical environment.

  • Improve overall business operational efficiency.
  • Promote personal development.

Delegates who have been on the courses have the following to say:

  • "I most liked the practical way it was delivered - you do a task then learn about why and how it affects you"
  • "It was great how it related to our type of work"
  • "I really enjoyed the practical sessions"
  • "The course has made me think about my attitude, now I stop and think about the results I want before communicating with my team"

How to tailor your programme

Develop Training's Management Development training consultant will spend time with you to understand the job roles and responsibilities of each potential delegate. This will impact on the content of the programme and the duration of the training needed. Scenarios are then selected for the practical sessions specific to the job role of each individual, so that delegates are able to get the most out of the programme. By working together we are able to produce a MaTE programme specific and relevant to the issues and needs that our customers are currently facing.
