Virtual Training: Analysing Learning Effectiveness

24 November 2021

About this Virtual Training Workshop

Take a deep dive into analysis of the effectiveness of your RTO's learning content!

Please note: This event has now reached capacity.

Can we afford to educate? What is the value proposition of our core business?

As training educators, managers, and leaders in RTOs we are focussed on a range of priorities: Engaging our learners, building the RTO, growing the business, understanding the dynamics of industry, developing individuals and cultivating the right attitude. These are all interrelated! 

This session looks to further develop skills and knowledge needed to reflect on and evaluate training, to measure the effectiveness value proposition of programs within your organisation. 

Join one of our most highly regarded presenters John Blake, for a session that will involve collaboration and participation in activities. Explore strategic critical thinking goalposts used to analyse the impact of training of learners, the role of trainers and the benefits to relevant stakeholders including the learners, employers, organisations and the community. Bring one or two of the courses that you are responsible for, to work on during this Virtual Training Workshop and walk away with some real insights into the importance of the analysis and evaluation of how effective your learning is.

Build on the fundamentals and take a deep dive in this 3 hour, interactive virtual training session that has been designed for experienced professionals who have been in the VET Sector for 5+ years.
