Do you suffer from Training Pain?

August 25th, 2023 - Student Engagement Training - Elizabeth Asbury

Do you suffer from pain associated with vocational training, work-based learning or staff upskilling? Does your current training solution cause tension headaches, stress and fatigue? Does your heart secretly sink when a complex learner arrives at your door? Don’t worry, you are not alone.

These are some of the classic symptoms of Training Pain, the pain organisations experience when their education and training programmes cause more work and create more problems than they solve. Training Pain can affect even the most experienced organisations, but don’t worry, help is at hand!

Pipi Learning LOVE complex learners and we want to see your organisation succeed. As a result, Pipi guarantee to help with the six main causes of Training Pain:

1. Time.

The time saved by investing in quality online training cannot be underestimated. We have saved our clients literally thousands of hours by streamlining their training content and making it accessible for all learners. All that time saved means that you can enrol more learners, resulting in increased participant numbers or quicker training turnover.

2. Persistent non-attenders.

Life is tough, time is short and at Pipi we understand that persistent non-attendance may not be a reflection of a learners enthusiasm or commitment. Providing learners with the option to study online can increase course completion and learner success, simply by putting the course in their pocket. Access learning anytime, anyplace on any device.

3. Progress and completion monitoring.

In a nutshell, online learning can be tracked, so we can tell you that it’s actually being done! This is as important to staff upskilling, compliance training and induction as it is to formal qualifications – you want to know that your workforce has the skills to support your business success.

4. In-built assessment.

Assessment and marking go hand-in-hand as the two major time-sinks in any training organisation. Neurodiverse learners and participants with low literacy or English proficiency HATE the word ‘describe’ and so do we! Assessments should identify skill, not the ability to write. We embed self-marking assessments throughout our modules, so participants can demonstrate their increasing understanding as they progress, and tutors don’t have to mark a thing! Win-win!

5. Sprawling online content.

In the haste to push content out online, learners can be left facing myriad things to do, from PDFs to YouTube clips to webpage content to Google Classrooms – no wonder they get lost! By packaging all our content into bite-sized modules, you know that learners have engaged with ALL the training content, and learners have what they need in one place. Simple.

6. Feedback and reporting.

All organisations engaged in training and upskilling are required to provide training reports and evidence of learner feedback, and at Pipi we do that for you! We love data, so we ensure that ongoing evaluation is embedded in all our modules, while our quarterly reports provide you with all the information you’ll need to present to the Board, or NZQA (Moderation anyone??).

Man pushing boxes away. Each box has a title: Deadline, anxiety and problems.

Pipi has the skill and expertise to reduce Training Pain and enable you to get on with the business you really enjoy. We’ll care for your low literacy and neurodiverse learners, and help all your trainees gain the skills they need to succeed. We’ll monitor progress, manage assessments and present learner feedback. Say NO Training Pain and choose Pipi Learning – live life Training Pain free

Elizabeth Asbury (PhD, MSc, BSc Hons)

Elizabeth has been working in online learning for so long that the vacant stares and looks of pity from ‘traditional’ educators have become a distant memory. Thanks to the early adopters and revolutionary thinkers who understood that online learning was about equity and accessibility, no longer is mentioning eLearning akin to screaming into the void. Her Ph.D in Psychology, post-doc research, and years of working in tertiary and vocational education certainly helped prepare Elizabeth for the fight to bring the amazing opportunities online learning can offer to the widest possible audience.
