About this webinar
There are many reasons adults return to formal learning. For example, to work toward a new job, to upskill, or because it’s a workplace direction.
Trouble is, being adults, they've already got busy lives with work, family commitments and other responsibilities, and study is just another thing to fit into a day. They may also have expectations about the learning environment that don't match reality. They might be out of practice with formal approaches to teaching and learning. And, perhaps not everyone has the technology or skills to participate in modern training and assessment.
Sometimes you might even get adults in your classroom that don't want to be there but have to be. As a trainer, how do you deal with this reluctance and other challenges and turn it into something positive?
Mick Gwyther has a strong history in Adult and Community Education (ACE) and VET and a wealth of experience in supporting adult learners to achieve in their courses!
