Develop Training’s unique training solution for Managing In a Technical Environment (MaTE) is designed to progress and support people from a variety of vocational backgrounds, to increase their management and communication skills within a technical environment – enabling them to develop and utilise their leadership and management skills to develop high performing teams.

MaTE is an innovative, interactive and engaging programme created by Develop Training. Using a combination of theory based training sessions that focus on essential people skills, followed by innovative real-play scenarios, learners 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 learners’ work place and the day to day situations that they encounter with staff and customers. MaTE includes real-play scenarios that are tailored to the job role and sector of the learner. This method uses real workplace scenarios 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.

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 learner. 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 learners 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.
