Programme objectives.

No business can afford to squander the investment involved in bringing new talent into the business.

Acorn accelerate the integration and competence of graduates, apprentices and fast-track employees to provide real business benefits.

With a proven track record of helping organisations create a practical framework for the development and support of emerging talent, our development modules orientate graduates towards the business culture, ensuring that they start to make a valuable contribution earlier in their career.

We challenge the graduate – during the programmes and afterwards – to take responsibility, to reflect on their placements and to take control of their career progression and opportunities.

Inspired graduates who benefit the business.

Making the transition from education to work is a process in which many first time employees stumble. Acorn guides new talent through the transitional period, integrating them into the team, maximising their potential and accelerating their performance and contribution to the business.

We acknowledge that inspirational management is a key factor in graduate retention, therefore our programmes include a range of coaching and management skills to help line managers get the best from new recruits.
