Thinking back to years when I was a much younger office trainee, we didn’t have the online education and e-learning that is so fantastic today. All our opportunities had to be found in text books and stuff from the library. Although my own father was […]
Distane learning simplifies the whole attending college idea – not everyone can travel on a daily basis to their sea of learning. Staying away in halls of residence costs a huge amount of money and these days with so many complications arising from conventional college or universit attendance, the scope of learning online is widening ever daily. This allows the student to be in absolute control – no need to miss lectures because the tutor’s not available. No need to lose hours a day travelling either, and the savings to the environment are outstanding. The ability to learn using a laptop, tablet or smart phone also adds to the convenience factor for the student.
By signing on with a company or college that has always offered online learning, there is some expertise and experience that can be counted on. The usual teething problems with having to convert from face to face to purely online will not even exist or be a contributing factor. The major online learning suppliers offer a range of career focused courses which are recognised nationally by independent awarding bodies.
The way we get up the ladder in our career changes every few years. At one time when employment was easy to obtain, you could more or less rely on seeing an advert in the local paper or even a post card in an office […]

I have a walking club acquaintance who has always seemed pretty average in the educatinal stakes – she never takes much interest in the round table chats when a bunch of us meet up. I’ve only heard her make short bursts of interesting and dryly […]
There could well be a need for changes to be made in the content of training courses that government departments insist their staff undertake. I recall during my many years as a cs, having to take a variety of mandatory courses. These were online from a huge suite of custom designed training resources. Your line manager was provided with access to your account and if you didn’t log on and make some meaningful effort to pass the required tests in the time frame, then a black mark appeared on your personal record. You were deemed to need watching. E-learning and online teaching courses are absolutely brilliant as you have the work there in front of you and it really is just a case of reading, doing the scripted tests and then checking back that your line manager has noted your latest test scores. Each course is well designed and although rarely regaring work directly associated with your department, the courses cover many aspects of working within the governing framework. I have a very healthy regard for anti fraud agencies and I hold tax evasion as a personal afront as a direct result of some very interesting online courses I’ve undertaken.
