Team building tops poll of most enjoyable courses

Team building courses have been voted the best and most enjoyable in a survey of HR and training managers carried out for next week's World of Learning conference and exhibition.

The 312 respondents put team building ahead of Neuro-Linguistic Programming training, and voted management skills education courses into third place ahead of train the trainer courses in fourth.

Meanwhile health and safety courses were voted the worst or least enjoyable, ahead of finance for the non financial manager training and then IT skills courses in third.

HR and training managers registering to visit the World of Learning conference and exhibition were asked to state which were the best or most enjoyable courses they had experienced and also which were the worst or least enjoyable.

Jim Reilly, event director of World of Learning 2005 commented: "Nobody knows more about training courses than HR and training professionals such as these who select and arrange them. So the verdict of this group is important. Trainers need to look closely at what makes team building training popular and apply it to areas where courses are not so enjoyable."

The World of Learning conference & exhibition 2005, takes place on 15 & 16 November 2005 at the NEC Birmingham.
