We all appreciate that there's some training that your staff just have to do, so that you can tick the 'compliance' box that says they have been trained in a particular topic. Hopefully your staff will actually learn something new or pick up practical tips to improve their working practices … but this is not always the case.
How do You Learn for Work?
If you are asked if you have undertaken any staff development or training for your job, what do you think about?
Many of you may have heard the drums beating about online learning, virtual or distance learning and how more people are participating in online training courses.
You might be wondering whether it could work for you, but you are worried about whether you or your employees have the expertise to make use of the technology, especially if you are sat on your own with no-one on hand to guide you.
Exams are in the air at the moment ... especially if you know someone sitting GCSE's, A' levels or even the NEBOSH National Diploma. But how do we prepare for exams? 'Revision' is the word that springs to mind ... the stuff that you do once you have completed the course. This may seem obvious if you are a classroom learner ... but definite study (learning) and revision periods are probably less obvious when you are a distance learner or an online learner.
