Informal Learning in the VET Sector

16 September 2020

Today’s learner will be expected to understand virtual information, participate in virtual workplace activities such as communities of practice, real-time messaging, discussions and virtual coaching.

Part of our role as Trainers and Assessors is to prepare our learners, to learn how to learn, informally!

In this webinar, uncover a range of tools and approaches training organisations can use with learners to build these skills.  These tools, combined with an effective assessment strategy, can also provide evidence for soft skills and knowledge-based assessments, workplace projects, industry consultation, work placements and group work projects.

We’ll also explore current workplace learning practice including learning transfer, learning and teams ‘ecosystems’, as well as informal learning.

Navigate Informal Learning with Mick Gwyther in this brand-new webinar designed to help you maximise your impact on learners.
