Our Process, Fees & Agreements

At Montague Consulting we know that an organisation’s ability to implement a workforce training and development initiative varies significantly due to strategic timing, internal capacity and capability and knowledge of government funding.

To be responsive Montague Consulting offers a layered approach in its services. The foundation of our approach is to investigate your organisation’s Human Resource Management (HRM) practices with the aim of interweaving a sustainable training and learning framework using government funding where applicable.


Government Funded Staff Training
To understand the interaction between HR activities and Learning activities, why not attend one of our ‘Learning Coffee Breaks’. Our LCB’s are designed to:

  • Unravel the key Human Resource Management functions
  • Show how training and learning drives increased organisational performance across your HRM processes
  • Explain why the actual time spent in training and development is only the tip of the iceberg
  • Outline government priorities in terms of funding for training and learning.
