Our Talent Partnerships deliver strategic value through training

Here’s how a world leader in aircraft engineering and defence achieved their business training goals through a full Training Partnership with Optamor.



Optamor has provided over 9,170 hours of training to 1052 delegates.

How we saw things differently

Optamor has been providing a Training Partnership to our customer since July 2010, and fully manage a training budget in excess of £400k per year. In owning these activities, Optamor alleviates the burgeoning administration demands upon the business, as well as associated costs with the procurement, management of courses and content selection.

This allows our customer’s Learning and Development and HR teams to focus on tasks that are of more strategic value to them. Having worked in partnership for a number of years, it became apparent that embedding Optamor further into the business to take responsibility for managing the training budget on the customer’s behalf would be beneficial. This would allow the HR team to focus on business as usual and ensure that Optamor provide a simple and efficient mechanism through which training providers are sourced, engaged and managed, then training is delivered, offering overall commercial and control benefits.


Working with Optamor has freed up the HR team to focus on other core strategic activities safe in the knowledge that their learning and development function is in good hands.

A full scale review of existing operations was undertaken to ensure full administration services in coordinating, sourcing and booking training courses to meet the agreed training plan (and any additional needs collected throughout the training year) were provided. To ensure that all training met both the specific requirements of the delegate to be trained and the operational requirements of our customer the following projects were undertaken:

  • Review of Learning Management System activity and processes directly linked to Learning and Development activity
  • Implementation and deployment of a new eLearning platform
  • Full training provider review
HR Director - Aerospace, Engineering & Defence "Optamor have been working with us for over three years.
