"In a world of increasing complexity, diverse leadership brings resilience and new solutions." Liz Sayce – Chief Executive Officer – Disability Rights UK
Keystone are very proud to be working in partnership with leading charity Disability Rights UK, an organisation of disabled people leading change, working to create a society where everyone with lived experience of disability or health conditions can participate equally as full citizens.
The Leadership Academy Programme was developed following a feasibility study commissioned by DR UK which highlighted the demand for a career development programme run by and for people with lived experience of disability and/or long-term health conditions. A pilot ran in 2014 and is now being rolled out.

The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) are Europe's largest awarding organisation for leadership and management qualifications. They provide a flexible portfolio of qualifications supporting everyone from team leaders to strategic managers. Also a professional membership body with over 28,000 members, they are part of the City & Guilds Group, with over 2,000 ILM centres in the UK and internationally.
Keystone has been a busy ILM centre for several years now, with up to 500 ILM delegates at any one time. Our ILM Centre Management team, headed up by experienced centre manager Rendee Yule, have received regular outstanding feedback from the ILM relating to our systems, quality control and processes.

As organisations become flatter and the environment more complex, organisations are gradually moving from hierarchical structures to matrix and matrix-type structures and ways of working. Now, leaders and managers need to work with awareness and intelligence in seven capability areas that directly impact their effectiveness and therefore your organisation's performance. Click HERE to discover the seven capability areas and our suite of essential development tools and training, available through our partnership with our international operations associates David Bancroft-Turner MIPD, Dip TM and Wayne Thomas MA, MSc, MBA, PhD.
There are huge efficiencies to be made by equipping delegates with knowledge content before they attend training so that the session can focus on skills practice, giving instant 'pocket access' to relevant handouts and resources during the training and then providing them with easily accessible reference materials afterwards. Equally, a pure e-learning approach benefits from a user-friendly interface and easily accessible platform. Keystone is proud to partner with SelfPoint - the learning solution you carry in your pocket.
SelfPoint is a dynamic (cloud hosted) web app. This means it takes up almost no space on a delegate's smartphone. It can also be used on tablets, notebooks, laptops and desktop computers. By clicking a simple link, delegates are immediately taken to a menu of content for their course or topic ready for them to self-study.
SelfPoint can also be used alongside traditional training for pre-work, reading up on knowledge and facts, post-work and for quick reference back in the workplace. By using a learning platform to remove the need for knowledge input during a training session, the entire time delegates are with the facilitator they can spend it productively on actual skills practice and behavioural change.
Self-Point represents a real investment in your employees' development and increases the value of your spend on training. It can also be branded using your organisation's logo and colour scheme.
It's quick to set up, works across all e-devices, can be accessed 'on the move' and away from the office, and is very reasonably priced compared to the use of apps or traditional e-learning platforms.

Fuse is an exciting new development in the world of e-learning – a social learning platform that is easy to use, fast to update, gets sustainable results quickly and is more affordable. Read more about it HERE.
Personal Safety Index or PSI is the essential behavioural risk assessment tool for all site workers. It's a scientific risk profiling tool, developed and validated in partnership with Cranfield University. It has been purposely created for site workers or anyone that works around sites on a regular basis (including sub-contractors) to provide a consistent approach to competency management.
Currently, there is a distinct lack of understanding about the true competency of those working on sites. Just because someone has passed a test, whatever it may be, this gives no indication of their safety to undertake a task. Yet it is the only indication a site manager has when a worker first comes on site.
Easy to access and complete, this industry leading tool proactively measures and manages the safety culture of any work site and puts a plan in place to mitigate risk.
Once complete, the individual is given a Risk Index score, based upon a host of situational and behavioural factors, and is identified as High, Medium or Low Risk. Everybody is given a full report to explain their PSI to them and the assessment is then used to identify training and development needs.
This is backed up by a Management Information System, allowing managers to assess the overall risk of their workforce and drill down to projects, sites, individuals and several other categories, as well as monitor who has and hasn't completed the PSI.
