Best practice in Work Based Learning - Innovation in Training

Liz Hilton demonstrated Charnwood Training Group’s Health and Safety Resource and the Charnwood Induction Pack.

Liz discussed:

Company benefits – reduced travel costs and better use of time of training officers, by eliminating initial induction visits; plus find how easily the induction can be repurposed for other clients.

Costs and what’s involved – a relatively small initial investment on software, however you do need skill, design and scripting experience to use Flash to create interactive objects.

Commercial benefits - once you have developed a template, it could easily be customised for other clients.

  • Innovation in Training Liz Hilton, Learning Technologist
    • Joined Charnwood Training in May 2010.
    • Background in graphic design and multimedia.
    • My goal is to introduce a blended e-learning strategy to Charnwood Training.
    • In the hospitality sector there is a skills shortage.
    • Learners have long, unpredictable working hours and struggle to find time for fixed study periods.
    • Learning is often given low priority.
    • Training sessions cancelled at short notice.
    • Our training currently involves much travel by Training Officers.
    • This is costly and time consuming.
    The Problem
    • Creating a range of Flash and video based interactive learning materials.
    • These can be accessed either via the web or memory stick for those with poor internet access.
    • This allows learners flexible access to training materials, which they can fit around their busy schedules.
    • Reduces journeys made by Training Officers.
    The Solution
  • Charnwood Induction Materials
    • The following slides show screenshots of parts of our company introduction and health & safety packs….
  • Introduction Pack, designed to engage and involve learners…
  • Introduction pack course finder – helps to streamline induction process
  • Frequent use of review mechanisms, eg. hospitality themed drag and drop quiz test knowledge & engage learners
  • Health and Safety Pack, hazard spotting exercise…..dealing with statutory requirements in an engaging way….
  • I ncluding quizzes with meaningful feedback breaks topics down into bite size pieces much more likely to be digested by learners
  • All these learning tools contain review sections to help reinforce topics covered
  • On completion, learners can print a certificate of achievement…
    • Once developed, it is relatively easy to use the template to develop new learning materials
    • A recent example is an induction pack we have created for Punch Taverns, based on the original Charnwood introduction
    Repurposing learning materials
  • Screenshots of Punch Induction pack…
  • Having already created a template I was able to put this together quickly for a major client…
  • Using the same approach of chunks of information, followed by quizzes to text knowledge
    • Relatively small initial investment on software.
    • However you need skill, design and scripting experience to use flash for creating interactive resources.
    Costs and what’s involved
  • Company benefits
    • Reduced petrol costs, by eliminating initial induction visit.
    • Enhanced reputation for Charnwood Training as innovative learning providers.
    • Increases the company’s reach.
    • Once you have developed a template, it can easily be customized for other clients, as shown in the Punch Taverns example.
    • This template has since attracted the interest of other commercial partners.
    • Charnwood’s multimedia capability has helped attract new clients including Punch, Wetherspoons and Greene King.
    • Each of these will generate new learners.
