Course details

If you have already enrolled to take part in a virtual course with the Adult Learning team, or you are currently planning to come in to centre to learn, but would like to know more about what virtual learning involves, then this 2 hour session is a great way of finding out more.

In this free session we will explore the equipment and software you will need to access and participate in virtual learning and access resources and activities. We will also practice using video conferencing tools to connect with your tutor and other learners and answer any questions you may have in order to ensure that you are confident to enjoy and make the most of your virtual learning experience, now or in the future.

What are you doing to keep learners safe?

The safety of our learners and staff is our top priority and we’ve made some big changes to our centres, from socially-distanced training rooms to staggered start times. Although things will look different, our staff will be as friendly and helpful as ever and we’re really excited to welcome learners back.

If you’re concerned about visiting one of our centres, please get in touch so we can discuss it with you.
