Virtual College’s new online resources support ‘work ready’ training programmes

Virtual College has developed a range of resources to help colleges and training providers deliver ‘work ready’ training programmes including traineeships, apprenticeships, study programmes and employability initiatives.

The e-learning modules available include a range of ten work skills courses, covering everything from interview skills to communication in the workplace, plus comprehensive and engaging online functional skills resources in maths and English.

“There is a huge drive to help young people acquire the skills and knowledge to secure and sustain employment,” commented Liam Prendergast, Commercial Manager of Virtual College’s Education Division.

“These ‘work ready’ programmes come in many forms but, in each case, the ability to provide flexible, individually tailored learning plans is often fundamental to success. Our online learning resources and learner tracking tools can form an ideal part of practical, successful blended delivery solutions for both colleges and independent training providers.”

Virtual College has developed into one of the UK's leading providers of total solutions within the e-learning arena. Its key objective is to help enhance the traditional learning solution through the careful integration of technology.

Founded in 1995, today Virtual College has over 1.2 million registered online learners and this is growing at a rate of over 800 a day, across both public and private sectors. The company has developed a comprehensive product range, including over 300 online courses, accessed via the company's own Learning Management System, as well as offering a complete content design and development service.
