“It was okay. A lot of it wasnt relevant and it wasnt done by choice. You have to have this training to be able to get a job. Then having to do another level currently doing online to be able to keep my job is annoying. Having to pay another $600 to do it was not an option hence doing it online which is much harder.”
“The blended learning approach was great as it acknowledged that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to training. This approach worked well because the variety of approaches kept trainers and trainees engaged in training. The many factors that affected training includeed:
• Subject matter
• Audience make-up
• Types of learners
• Budget considerations
• Space constraints
• Compliance issues
Any or all of these considerations affected our choice for training and necessitated the use of blended learning approach. The following were some blended learning approaches:
• Use a PowerPoint training session and incorporate written quizzes, small group discussions, and role plays at various points in the training.
• Break a complex subject into parts and use a different training method to teach each section or step
• Use a live trainer with hands-on demonstrations for initial training and or online course for refresher training.
“This course was a huge stepping stone in my career and I’m so glad I completed it. The teaching staff were patient and so well organised. The facilities were excellent. The course itself was interesting and relevant. ”
“Professional and comprehensive course that met the requirements of the qualification. Staff were courteous and knowledgeable about the subject matter.
Class was much larger than expected which detracted from having as much individual involvement during class time.”
“The course took into account the needs of post school leavers and adult learners. The teaching staff were supportive and understanding.
The learning tasks were relevant and clearly explained to students by the lecturers.
The learning goals of students and lecturers were mutually compatible.”
