Our expertise isn’t just in the knowledge of Health and Safety, it’s in delivering it too!
Every learner absorbs knowledge and acquires skills differently. According to Rasmussen, there are four types of learner:
We endeavour to utilise an element of all of these learning styles in our training sessions – but if you need more practical moments to absorb the maximum amount of information, or wish to take any training literature away with you, this is possible.
Our sessions operate in an informal setting for learners to thrive in. We use case studies, roleplay, simulations and interactive technology to teach all of our courses. Also included are online videos that can be used to supplement your learning prior to practical classroom courses.
Learners absorb knowledge more easily when they feel positive about themselves, we want to encourage all our learners to be active in their approach. We tend to teach these courses in an informal manner as this is usually preferred, but if your team would benefit from a more structured formal session of teaching we can tailor this to you.
For those who require additional support, we also offer materials for those with Dyslexia, Hearing Problems and other disabilities.
The purpose of teaching these courses is to provide knowledge and skill to deal with problem solving issues of a health & safety nature. In these practical sessions we encourage the group to discuss potential issues relevant to their workplace practice.
After monitoring your progress throughout the training session, assessments of learners are carried out through the discussions, questions and answers, quizzes and practical demonstrations you will undertake. A test paper is sat at the end of the session to evidence your learning as well.
Learning is a lifelong process that exists beyond the training room. Techniques change, technology moves on, and let’s face it, some things you learn in the training room can fade from your mind over time. After your training with us you will receive a 3 month, 6 month and 18 month aftercare email, where we can keep you up to date and discuss any questions you might have.
As a team we are passionate about delivering education; it’s important to always be on the lookout for ways to improve our delivery. Whether it’s through peer evaluation, feedback forms or just having a simple chat with you, we always strive to optimise our training courses.
