Quality Training Skills Acquired Whilst Temping

I worked in private industry for most of my years out of the home.  Then after an aggressive takeover, my company paid me off to avoid a constractual conflict of interest.  I irelaxed for a little while, then planning to become a driving instructor, I researched and joined a training group.  Whilst waiting for my personal driving trainer to become available, I signed on with an employment agency and took a temporary job in a civil service department.  It was the best thing I’ve ever done  . . . . .  I had to participate in mandatory online training courses on every subject possible.  It taught me how to take in a lot of information in a short time.  Not something I had really ever had to do in my previous lives.  I really did learn a lot about my ability to absorb knowledge and how to get a course done as efficiently as possible.   I never did become a driving instructor though!

 

Bringing Elements Of Fun To A Learning Chore

Putting the fun back in to learning is a skill that candidates do not always appreciate during those hours sat in front of the computer.  To most of us, learning a new skill, or taking a job focused training course is about as exciting as watching paint dry.  In many cases there is a touch of annoyance at having to take part at all, if it’s a mandatory employer based course, a certain resistance to having to use valuable time that could be spent elsewhere.  The point that the course will enhance particular parts of the job or makes it safer when you do it, do not always feature in the mind set.   Some of the more modern education suppliers have taken this point on board and have designed their online courses and classroom work with more of an element of humour.  This is usually the most successful approach after all, a happy student is a successful one!

Ensuring Our Learning Levels Are Adequate

In every walk of life there is a need to keep our training for the job in absolute tip top position.  Whether we are in the medical industry or law, travel or childcare.  With so much emphasis on health and safety and ensuring no fraudulent activity is caused by any of our actions, then making sure we check out the latest in educational options is paramount.

Another point to check is whether our current level of training is still appropriate and adequate. With changes coming along all the time, in legal status and employment law, it is vital to make sure any certification we hold is the very latest available.  Checking online sources of e-education is a good way to see what is currently available.  It also outlines the type of learning arena available, whether the candidates are on one to one, or large groups logging on to complete multi choice questions etc.  You pays  your money and takes  your choice.

Waking The Brain Cell With Mandatory Online Training

Filling the gaps in our learning can sometimes seem like a never ending journey.  One person cheerfully quipped that her learning curve was getting more like a spiral – which is one way of looking at it.  This person was doing the mandatory online anti fraud and money laundering course set by our employer.  There were always online courses of undertaken during each quarter.  These were automatically monitored and anyone not completing, or not even registering to take part, would be notified to their line manager by default.  As with every employer, they are persuaded by training suppliers that all the employees would benefit from this course or that.  It’s much easier to make it mandatory for all to undertake it than spend time assessing who would actually benefit & who wouldn’t.  If the course is well written and not bunged up with jargon and repetitive formula, everyone will gain something from an online course, if only to wake up the brain cells now and then!

Filling The Learning Gap With Online Tutoring

When young folk get up to the senior part of their learning journey through school, there is a designated path for them to follow. At the independent fee paying schools, this is critically followed, in an age old pattern of reliable and failsafe means of giving each student the very best chances of success when sitting their Oxbridge entrances or those to enter Sandurst etc.

For the student who doesn’t fit in to this very rigid scheme, it can be daunting and some may find themselves left behind.  In previous years, this could herald a disaster for the child and their family.  If a particular career has always been followed and expectations run high on this continuing, anxiety and panic looms ahead.   Fear not though, there are some amazing online tutoring schemes to help sort this learning deficit.  Finding the right one is all that is required to get back into the swing.

Learning Styles Explained: Find the Right One for You!

There are three main learning styles understood by education specialists.  They are visual, aural or kinesthetic.  Here is some information about each type of learning, see if you can work out which one suits you most!

Visual learners mainly learn through seeing and watching a class being taught.  They benefit greatly from illustrations, diagrams, watching demonstrations and reading about a topic.  Visual learners should try to sit at the front of a class so they can always see what is being taught.

Aural learners mainly learn through listening and hearing what is being taught.  Instead of needing to see the subject of the lesson, as long as they can easily hear the lesson they will learn.  These types of learners would do well to record lectures or speakers, listen back to past lessons and have discussions with their peers to learn better.

Kinesthetic learners mainly learn through hands on experience and ‘doing’ whatever is being taught.  These types of learners prefer having active lessons where they can use their hands to learn.  Topics such as cooking, engineering and science work well for kinesthetic learners as there is always plenty to get on with.

Online Training To Get A Better Career

If you are seeking employment, or to reach the next level in the career ladder of your current job, you may be thinking of ways to make yourself stand out from the rest of the crowd.  One way to get ahead in any career is to take further study qualifications to boost your skills.

Online training offers a flexible and cost effective method of studying, which can really suit people who are in full time work.  Unlike traditional courses, online training allows you to study where and when you want, meaning you can still work the 9-5 and come home to study in the evening and at weekends.  This is great as traditional courses often mean travelling to and from college campuses for lectures and meetings, which often fall within the working day.

People who study online courses are often more able to use the skills they have learnt within their working environment as they have constant access to the course materials.

Learn Healthcare Through Online Means

Healthcare courses will always be in high demand, with a need for people who can perform simple first aid, CPR and life saving skills required in most work places.  If you can arrive at a job interview and say you have a qualification in any of these healthcare topics, you will already be ahead of the rest of the pack!

Online courses offering healthcare training are a great way to learn new skills – first aid is always going to be a useful skill and fewer people than ever are willing and able to peform simple life saving or first response skills.  Another healthcare course which is easily learnt online is fire safety and risk management, which allows you to learn how to keep your business safe from fires and other hazards.

Online training is a great way to learn new skills as it offers a flexible and easy way to learn in your own time and wherever you wish to study, without the need to travel or attend lectures.

Choosing the Right Course for You

When you decide that you want to take an online learning course, it can be difficult to choose a course – there are so many out there!  From first aid to psychology and computer studies to SEO, you can learn almost anything through an E-Learning course.  The problem is finding a course which will suit you and your current requirements.  Think about what you want to use the course for – do you need to get ahead in your career, add it to your CV for future use, or simply want to learn a new hobby?  The choice of course will depend on these questions.

If you are needing a course to further your career or add to your CV, you will probably want to work on a course which leads to recognised qualifications, which will be sought after by employers – there are many companies offering accredited courses.

If you are after something to use as more of a hobby, think about trying something you have never done before!  There are all sorts of practical courses in subjects such as knitting, nutrition, sewing, cooking and beauty which could be interesting for you.

Learning Management Software Systems

Learning Management Software or Systems is often referred to as LMS.  These are the main body of online learning courses, and provides the means to access a course, its contents and examinations.

LMS are the area of the learning course which the user logs into in order to access the course materials.  It offers a space to store the contents of the course, which can be accessed at any time through any computer which is connected to the internet.  The LMS also allows the user to take any tests or quizzes are required in order to complete the course.  The LMS gives the user the chance to view their current progress through the course they are working on.

Many different LMS systems exist, and there are differences between each of them, but the main layout is generally the same for each.  They work with different learning companies and online training providers in order to offer a range of flexible online learning courses which users can partake in.
