You wouldn't learn to skydive with someone who rarely skydives, would you? Neither would we. It's the same with specialist education too.
Which is why our courses are developed and taught only by people who are in practice at Assurity. Every single day of the week… except when they're in the classroom teaching you! So when it comes to deploying what you've learnt, it’s going to work instantly. Like the parachute.
We’ve got a practical range of public and private courses that give you the skills you need to deliver better in a fast-changing technology environment. Take a look at our courses…
All public courses can also be run privately in an organisation. Contact Catherine Saganic for more information.
The Agile training was very good, especially the Being Agile vs Doing Agile. Well-run course. Nick set the scene, answered questions, encouraged open dialogue and learning through doing. Focus on key points and concepts. A lot of practical experience to back up points made. Nick was an excellent facilitator.
The tutor/trainer is highly experienced in the subject and was able to give life context to the materials being taught as he is actively doing Agile projects. He ensured all participants had a good understanding of the subject and was clear and articulate. The course was well structured and logical.
I DID recommend Assurity Education to my managers. I received my PSPO training (from Edwin) and certification while working at another company and I was delighted with the way Edwin coached/helped us. He did a great job. So when my manager asked me for advice, I was crystal clear – we need training and Assurity is the team to go to.

Traditional training often fails to yield sustained results over the long term. That’s because a large amount of learning is forgotten within two weeks if the knowledge is not immediately applied and turned into skills. Some studies have shown that without quality coaching, 87 cents out of every dollar spent on training is wasted.
Assurity Education has delivered breakthrough successes with our structured Mentored Learning Programme (MLP) that applies learning immediately. MLP is made up of two key components:
By working with you through the programme, we can introduce quality practices that start with a high level of support and then level off over time as the gains in performance and productivity are realised. The net benefits of this approach are increased productivity, reduced time-to-market and increased ROI.
We offer a range of customised MLP delivery plans for all our courses topics. Our approach is:
The outcomes of our Mentored Learning Programme have been outstanding. We measured the performance of our Scrum 2-2-2 MLP (an initiative we developed and executed in 2012) across a number of enterprises. The worst outcome has been a 100% lift in velocity or throughput. The best outcomes have reached 800%.
