How do I sign up?
You’ll need to find the course and register your interest on the Learning Academy eventbrite webpage.
Once you have registered you will be issued with details of how to access Training Tracker, the online platform we use for e-learning.
Each online course takes 30 to 40 minutes to complete and there is a short test to check your understanding at the end. Remember, like any learning, colleagues should discuss training plans with their manager before embarking on e-learning.
Why have we introduced e-learning courses?
Online courses mean you can complete them at the best time and location for you, without needing to travel. They offer a different way of learning compared with traditional face to face training, which may better suit your learning style.
In the coming months, the Learning Academy will be working with course leaders to make more courses available online. They also plan to launch a revamped statistical learning offering, which will provide timely and relevant training at required levels.
