Free E-learning Programme Launches on Valentine’s Day with Lots of Love from the Lighthouse Club
THE LIGHTHOUSE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY CHARITY has launched its new e-learning programme to help spread some extra love and support within the construction industry.
In addition to the online tutor-led masterclasses, seminars and onsite training offered by the charity’s Wellbeing Academy, this latest programme is aimed at equipping workers with the soft skills they need to navigate today’s challenges and uncertain times.
New E-learning Programme
The Wellbeing Academy’s self-paced e-learning modules include courses such as: Bang on Budget, Banter vs Bullying, Managing Stress, Resolving Conflict, Understanding Anxiety and Work Life Balance.
The modules are delivered at two levels. Foundation Level 1 provides learners with an introduction to each subject, the key topic areas and an understanding of the language used in the next level. Foundation Level 2 presents scenarios where learners need to demonstrate their understanding of the subject, apply the skills learned and use logical reasoning to engage and master a variety of problems.
After registering, learners can access all of the e-learning modules on any device and at any time, providing complete flexibility around hectic work and home lives. Learners can use the e-learning dashboard to check their progress and receive notifications of any partially completed courses.
Benefits of Self-Paced E-Learning
Learning at own pace around other commitments
Develops ownership of learning
Creates a stress free learning process
Learners demonstrate greater understanding of subject
Develops confidence to apply new skills
Sarah Bolton, Director of Charitable Services at the charity, said, “We are constantly augmenting our charitable services to ensure that we meet the needs of our workforce. The very nature of our industry means that fitting a set training schedule around work and home life commitments doesn’t work for everyone and our self paced e-learning addresses that problem. Studies also show that this style of learning means people are more likely to retain knowledge on new subjects and therefore will feel more confident in applying those skills in real life.”
“We also know that to support a positive wellbeing culture, we need to develop our workforce’s soft skills to help them negotiate the challenges of everyday life and working in what can be a very stressful environment. Our Self paced e-learning modules do exactly that and they are relevant to every person in our industry. Whether you’re a self employed tradesperson, a site operative, project manager or office based, everyone will benefit from developing their soft skills and everyone needs to play their part.”
