Two primary principles guide our course delivery - firstly, the most effective form
of teaching is face-to-face, and secondly, individuals learn by doing.
Instructor-led learning is arguably the fastest and most effective method since it
is highly interactive and the instructor can identify and adapt to issues as they
arise. Instructors with experience of the industry can also contextualise material,
enabling delegates to immediately relate it to their professional experience. Because
of the importance of individual interaction and the opportunity for delegates to
ask questions and obtain help and guidance when they need it, our class sizes are
kept small with a maximum of eight delegates per course.
It is thought that as learners we internalise and remember around 80% of what we
experience or practice directly, against some 20% of what we, passively, are told.
For this reason, practical hands-on activities are included throughout our courses
to reinforce theory.
Micrologica Systems has been providing consultancy, bespoke software development
and training for over 30 years and our trainers are experienced developers as well
as qualified and experienced educators.
We offer a range of instructor-led scheduled courses and bespoke on- and off-site
training. IT is a fast-paced, stimulating and exciting environment in which to work;
we believe that acquiring and enhancing professional skills should be challenging
yet enjoyable and we seek to make our courses motivating, engaging and insightful.
We deliver our public scheduled courses at high quality, tranquil and supportive
venues in the medieval city of York. All training rooms are equipped with modern
audio-visual equipment and refreshments are available throughout the day.
We are able to provide training on-site for clients, although for private or customised
courses we would still recommend off-site provision as this avoids the inevitable
distractions of the everyday work location.
To be cost-effective training must perform three tasks: it must impart technical
knowledge, it must impart and enhance skills, and it must endow the delegate with
confidence in their ability to use their knowledge and skills. We believe that in
the tutorial environment provided by our instructors, delegates are best placed to
achieve that confidence. All delegates are asked to complete a course assessment
form on completion and we use this feedback as part of our continuous improvement
Course materials are developed in-house and we are able to provide bespoke courses
for clients after appropriate assessment of their requirements. We can provide .computers,
audio-visual equipment and course delivery at any suitable venue subject to availability
and prior agreement. In addition, Micrologica Systems can provide consultancy, project
management and software development services, please see our services website.
