Develop talent, build relationships and realise ambitions!
Welcoming a graduate to your company is an exciting prospect for all involved. With the correct development and encouragement, graduates will inevitably become the future of your business, driving your company forward with ambition and enthusiasm. It’s important to foster their talent and successfully manage their natural energy to best benefit your company. Kippure Estate has developed a number of exciting outdoor Graduate Development Programmes; all of which provide the perfect platform to help your graduates unleash their full potential.
The estate is set amidst the wild and beautiful landscape of the Wicklow Mountains. Your graduates will benefit from
tranquil, natural surroundings, free from the pressures and constraints of a more urban location. In fact, our venue
makes the ideal setting in which to learn vital skills such as managing risks, leading teams and developing their role in
The Kippure Estate Team
We’ve got a team of highly experienced staff, who work tirelessly to ensure that our graduate development programmes exceed expectations. The team have a firm focus on delivering results, and their programmes are developed with learning as a priority. However, they also understand the importance of creating a comfortable, non-threatening environment for participants, in order to get the best results possible. Our team not only lead outdoor sessions, but listen too. In fact,
we believe that listening – and allowing graduates to reflect on their own development and identify areas for improvement – is a powerful way of achieving great things.
We have a range of graduate development programmes available, and can tailor programmes to suit your personal requirements. On the next page you’ll find two sample programmes.
We actively encourage graduates to lead their own debrief session after each activity, and after each event, they will be
offered the chance to complete a ‘personal action plan’, which can be taken home. This will help your graduates in their further development within your company.
Our Induction programme has three main focus points; encouraging team relations, improving communication and providing a comfortable arena for bonding and fun! We also focus on key skills, such as:
- Handling information
- Project management
- Working effectively as a team
- Managing time and staying organised
- Task management
After the Kippure induction programme, graduates will feel more confident in their role within your business, and will also develop a personal action plan to implement when back in the office. Just as importantly, they’ll have the vital chance to bond with their fellow graduate colleagues, establishing firm working relationships which will benefit the company as a whole.
The Transition Programme is focused solely on the second stage of your graduates’ development, as they progress through your company and take on further roles of leadership and responsibility. In this programme, we’ll be focusing on:
- Taking on a leadership role
- Making effective decisions
- Managing people and resources
- Self reflection and improvement
- Setting and meeting objectives
Graduates will have the chance to practice leadership skills in our safe, welcoming environment, before putting them into practice on their return to the company!
Flexible Options at Kippure Estate
The courses outlined above can be combined to create an extended 2-day event, if required. If there is something that
you particularly want us to focus on during the programme, simply get in touch with one of our team to discuss your
requirements further. We are flexible and can create a bespoke programme to help develop your graduates as
effectively as possible.
If required, we can also work with your in-house training department, or if you prefer, we can work alongside an external training company. Over the years, we’ve developed solid relationships with excellent management training companies, but we can also work with a company of your choice, if you prefer.
Unlocking the full potential of your graduate employees is one of the most important things that you can do for your company.
Let Kippure Estate help you to get the best out of your fresh, exciting team!
