A transition in course delivery: from face-to-face to virtual classroom

Like most people during the pandemic, we had to move what had been traditionally delivered in a face-to-face environment to virtual classroom provision. We started with Legionella Awareness and Asbestos Awareness courses, and as well as changing the delivery method, International Workplace worked with us to tailor the content so the courses were relevant to our processes and procedures.

We will continue to deliver these courses and others via virtual classrooms because the feedback that I have had from the participants has been great; Kate, one of the trainers, is very engaging. My learners have told me that three-and-a-half hours just seems to disappear! I think that’s the best feedback that you can get.

Collaborating to develop a bespoke training course

Recently we had a specific need for a course on accident investigations. International Workplace’s trainer, Jamie, built a lot of the core components of the course then worked with our QSHE team to make it very specific to our systems of work.

That's why we enjoy working with International Workplace because nothing is off the cards and the team are really accommodating and supportive to make those course changes for us. That's invaluable to an SME business when you don’t have an internal training delivery team.
