Improve marketing capability with Tailored Training Solutions
Our tailored training solutions provide end to end learning and development programmes for organisations of all sizes. From identifying skills gaps to delivering practical training courses and internationally recognised qualifications, our bespoke programmes improve marketing capability and build business advantage.
And as our courses can be delivered in your workplace, they’re twice as cost effective as outplacement courses.
We work with our clients across four phases: Assess, Build, Deliver and Support. These form a complete solution that maximises return on investment and simplifies measurement. Our approach is completely bespoke and you can choose to work with us in just one specific area – it’s entirely up to you.
We can provide analysis of marketing capability through our development needs analysis tool – Marketing DNA which identifies existing skills gaps and areas of strength at company, team and role levels.
The output of CIM Marketing DNA allows you to:
- Identify key areas for development
- Set development objectives and identify priorities
- Understand the capabilities and competencies needed to be a proficient professional marketer
- Create bespoke learning and development programmes to meet needs
- Evaluate post course measuring progression

We provide three course options when building your training programme:
Off-the-shelf – the course director can deliver one or more courses from our extensive range of off-the-shelf public training courses.
Tailored – the course director can take the content from one or more of our off-the-shelf public training courses and tailor it to your industry and skill gaps.
Bespoke – the course director will work with you to design a completely bespoke programme of training.
All training courses can be delivered in your workplace, making them twice as cost effective as outplacement courses. Or the course can be at a preferred venue of your choice, at CIM’s headquarters (Moor Hall in Cookham) or delivered virtually.
