Challenge: Waves was engaged to design and deliver a bespoke day of cognitive and experiential activities for a group of young people undergoing guidance in wealth management. The group consisted of Nigerian students and graduates ranging in age from 17 to 27. Waves’ expertise was called upon to provide day 2 of an integrated programme providing advice, guidance and support to high net worth individuals and families. The Waves’ remit spanned personal profiling, Emotional Intelligence, self-awareness, effective leadership and learning through experience.
Challenge: South Wilts Grammar were looking for a week of high quality experiences for year 10 students in place of their week of work experience. Some of this could be provided in school but it was felt very strongly that the activities needed to take the students out of school and put them in an unfamiliar environment and give them the chance to work in unfamiliar groups on new and challenging tasks. Surviving GCSE years at school does rely on many of those softer skills such as team working and good communication, and that these remain vital on into the workplace and so they wanted to have these tackled explicitly in the sessions of activities.
Challenge: Laing O’Rourke Construction Managers undertake a series of bespoke modules designed to improve their understanding and execution of leadership and management on construction sites.

Waves Training Solutions have been selected to provide long-term support to the delivery of the Transforming Construction Managers programme. Support to the programme includes delivering the Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team programme onboard yachts in the Solent, delivering Raising The Baa and providing experienced facilitators for the classroom phases.
Challenge: Laing O’Rourke have been contracted to renovate the 1,000 acre Gaydon Triangle for Jaguar Landrover (JLR). The challenge was to provide the opportunity for Laing O’Rourke (including its sub-contractors) and Jaguar Landrover’s staff to begin the process of becoming a high performing team. The group totalled 69 and within its number were MDs, directors, designers, architects, planners, structural engineers, digital engineers, steelwork specialists to name a few. Waves Training Solutions Ltd was selected to provide a Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team facilitator to help design the programme and 2 to facilitate on the day.
Challenge: The Ammunition Technical Officer (ATO) Course is a specialist long course for Royal Logistic Corps (RLC) junior officers. The ATO is the British Army’s ammunition and explosives expert responsible for the management, maintenance and disposal of ammunition. The ATO course is designed to train all students how to design and inspect ammunition storage sites and how to dispose of unexploded ordnance and improvised explosive devices. Waves have been commissioned to provide support to the Royal School of Military Engineering (RSME) and the Defence EOD, Munitions and Search (DEMS) Training Regiment in order to redesign the ATO course with an initial requirement for the new course to be ready for delivery from 1 Apr 17.
Challenge: : Funded by the UK Ministry of Defence, Waves has been contracted to carry out an exciting research project in collaboration with BAE Systems, Bright HF Ltd and Leo Learning. The challenge is to investigate advances in instructional approach and learning technologies, identify current and emerging best practice techniques for the design and delivery of training, and to identify the Knowledge Skills Attitudes (KSA) and behaviours required by both Training Designers and Trainers to ensure a holistic continuum of training design and delivery. The 1 year project will be delivered in conjunction with BAE Systems as part of the Defence Human Capability Science and Technology Centre (www.dhcstc.com).
Challenge: Joint Fires coordination training is one of the most resource intensive capabilities to train and maintain competency and currency globally. Good simulation can assist both delivery and skills maintenance at a fraction of the cost and significantly reduce risk. UK in-Service Joint Fires simulators and low level crew trainers are increasingly obsolete, and will be out of service before the JOINT FIRES SYNTHETIC TRAINER (JFST) is delivered. A Training Needs Analysis was required to determine how Joint Fires training could be optimally taught and maintained (individually and collectively), whilst identifying where good simulation could assist by delivering increased, easy access to training opportunities both prior to, and instead of, conducting live practice.
Challenge: New Employment Model (NEM) Programme Team have recently come together across a series of project teams, under a single programme. The team of 60 MOD personnel, military and civilian, have to deliver a significant change programme which will have far reaching consequences across defence by being dynamic, innovative, and not afraid to challenge the status quo. The team development day wanted to provide an opportunity to enhance the skills, and develop workplace behaviours, to help their long term careers as well as improving their performance in the short term to support a people focused change programme.
Challenge: Capturing a decade of campaigning lessons, and to prepare officers for the challenges of a contingent era, the Army revised the content of its key officer career courses. As a direct result, the Royal Logistics Corps (RLC) tasked Waves to conduct a detailed Role Analysis of RLC lieutenants, captains and majors to identify the changes in their Role requirements, and to better understand the challenges faced by RLC officers.
Challenge: Programme FARADAY was implemented to oversee the Engineer General Service recovery plan in order to sustain a branch which is ready for future challenges through the provision of a Competence Based Approach to Training. There is a training requirement to enable personnel from existing source branches to make the transition into the integrated branch, to operate as a Head of Group (HoG) or Warrant Officer (WOET). This was being delivered via a new Individual Competency Framework (ICF) with the five pillars of Operate, Maintain, Diagnose, Repair and Mentor (OMDRM).
