The directors of Acumina, Lesley Ravenscroft and Denise Campbell, both worked for many years in large companies, with complex structures and (often) bureaucratic pressures.
In setting up Acumina, they were determined to build on the positives of what they had learned, whilst creating a new way of working: one that achieved ‘big’ but remained small.
Acumina works solely with partner Associates, all of whom choose to work with us for one, or (generally) several, contracts. All of these Associates are selected for the extent and relevance of their experience and skills, and for their explicit commitment to quality. And all contribute to the unique Acumina approach.
What we are committed to:-
People matter in everything we do – assessment, training, work with families – we place the individual at the very centre.
Quality matters - we pride ourselves in creating materials and services that are of the highest standards and that achieve the aims of the client in the most effective and professional way.
Extending the boundaries - innovation and creativity can contribute extensively to the effectiveness of services: we work with clients to ensure development and delivery that maximises both effectiveness and engagement.
Process, not just content - we are committed to true learning so promote curriculum, assessment and training materials that focus not just on the ability to regurgitate methodology, but on the application of that content in an open-ended context.
Working together, with both Associates and clients - a collaborative, team approach promoting a synergy that is healthy, supportive and enables success for all.
Transparency - we strive to be fair and open, with everyone.
Fun! - work takes up a great deal of time. We want people who work with us to enjoy what they do and be rewarded accordingly. Acumina enjoys what it does!
