Student Digs by James Brooks from Saddleworth- My Social Progress

Why our Optician Practice is making Social Progress

Last week I traveled over the hill from Saddleworth to Social Progress. Stephen and I made the short trip over to Honley to visit our friends at Social Progress for a training course on blogging, so this had better be a good one!

Social Progress are experts in social media training and management and they provide all the Allegro Optical staff with the very best training to ensure we are always on the ball with our social media. The training session was led by Esther Orridge, who spent 3 hours ensuring that we both completed the course. Esther made sure we both had the confidence and know-how to write good quality blogs. Keeping Allegro Optical ahead of the game in our online presence as well as in the test room.

So-Pro Veteran

I feel I am fast becoming a Social Progress veteran, as this was my 3rd SoPro course in 12 months. I have now completed courses on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and now this latest one on blogging. I’ve also successfully complete an Emergency First Aid at Work course with Purple Dog. I really enjoy learning new things and developing my existing skills.

We are very lucky at Allegro Optical as all our staff are provided with the skills, tools and resources to grow and develop our careers. Hopefully, you are already enjoying our regular blogs but we are sure that they will now be even better. 

Keep an eye out in the New Year as we will be starting a regular vlog where we’ll be showing you around our practices, our frame selection and some of the equipment you can expect to be used when you come for your sight test.

Why all the training?

At Allegro Optical absolute perfection is the name of the game. As I’m sure you can tell, from the second you walk through the door, during your eye examination and choosing your glasses, it has to be right. When selecting your new glasses our dispensing opticians take many more individual measurements than most optical dispensers. We work as a team to give all our clients a high quality, bespoke pair of spectacles. Ones that will not only work great but look great too!
