Benchmark Training Ltd is a specialist designer and provider of behavioural change training programmes for organisations where strict safety compliance and regulatory frameworks apply. Benchmark’s ethos is that safety excellence enables world-class operational performance.

Benchmark Training Ltd is well known across the railway group for its high impact leadership development programmes. The Company has been delivering leadership development with Network Rail’s front-line leader community since 2008 and its iconic courses continue to drive significant safety and business performance improvement across the industry.

Babcock Rail, Balfour Beatty Rail, Irish Rail, Southeastern Trains and Amey Rail all number among its clients and the Company also now includes Chiltern Railways, the GNGE Alliance and the Network Rail general management graduate entry among its clients.

Benchmark takes a highly role- contextualised and experiential approach to maximise delegate engagement and to ensure learning ‘sticks’. Its facilitators continually role model the behaviours and attitudes that its clients are promoting.

The Company has a suite of five leadership development courses, each targeted at a specific level of responsibility and all designed to improve safety culture. Its leadership development training is designed to fundamentally improve a leader’s ability to successfully:

  • Assess all relevant factors in a developing situation
  • Create a plan that is timely and well thought through
  • Communicate the plan effectively to internal and external parties • Enable, Motivate and inspire throughout the implementation of the plan
  • Evaluate success objectively and share lessons learned.

Benchmark takes a highly practical and pragmatic approach to its training delivery. Learners are given the tools they need to significantly improve their leadership skills back in the workplace and, more importantly, are coached through the practice and re-practice of implementing those tools in a supportive learning environment.

Delegates leave the courses inspired to take active and immediate responsibility for their own and their team’s actions, and long-term evidence from Network Rail demonstrates a financial return on investment of 7:1 within six months.
