We can work with you to tailor a course for your specific needs and are always open to discussing any options with you. These can be delivered at ICE's historic base - Madingley Hall - or in your workplace.
We arrange regular business breakfasts at our base - historic Madingley Hall, just outside Cambridge. We aim to present the latest thinking and offer a forum for discussion with Cambridge experts and others. Sign up to our mailing list and we will ensure you are invited to a future business breakfast. Contact email@example.com
Set in magnificent gardens just four miles from the centre of Cambridge, Madingley Hall, the home of ICE, provides a wonderful setting for conferences, workshops, private dinners, training, networking events, product launches, weddings or film shoots.
ICE courses are developed in a modular way. The advantage of this for companies is that a programme can be built from existing components to suit your organisational needs. This could be combining existing 1-day courses or choosing modules from an award bearing course to be delivered directly to your staff either at ICE or at your own headquarters.
Academics at the University of Cambridge are to lead a new series of low-cost, bite-sized courses, aimed, in particular, at adults who are missing out on opportunities for further study because they struggle to find the time.
