Elearning has completely transformed that way in which apprentices learn and master new skills; making it simpler, faster and more efficient for both the learner and the employer.
At NTG Training, our apprenticeship training provides a blend of online learning and practical tutor-led sessions, making it easy for businesses to manage time and workload around the training. This article looks other benefits of online apprenticeship training and how it can benefit your business.
- Learn from any location
One of the great benefits of online learning is that you don’t have to leave your office to attend classroom sessions, all you need is your computer and preferably a quiet environment from which to concentrate. For employers, this means the 20% of time required to spend on off-the-job training can be carried out flexibly with no travel time to get to classes.
- Fit in learning around your existing job
Sessions can be taken at a time to suit your staff’s working day. This works particularly well for those who work shifts and need to allocate some time to completing the apprenticeship training during their shift work, but it can be done during quieter periods which we can help work flexibly around shift patterns.
- Access to other free online learning programmes
Our online apprenticeship programme gives learners access to over 500 other free modules that your staff may find useful to complete. These include health and safety, media, data protection and security.
- Learn at your own pace
Online apprenticeship training gives you the flexibility to learn at your own pace. Some modules you may find easier to complete than others, or you need to repeat some sessions to fully grasp each topic before moving onto the next. The point is, you are control of your progress at every step of the way.
- Consistency in delivery of training
eLearning ensures that all learners receive the same type of training, making each apprenticeship standard consistent. Whilst we still believe that tutor-led sessions are an essential part of any apprenticeship programme, online learning means that training is delivered consistently across each Level and course.
