Instructor Lead Learning


This is where you can see all of our Instructor Led courses.  These are workshop sessions where you can come and learn in a classroom environment with a knowledgeable and experienced trainer to guide you through the course.

Please scroll through the list of Instructor led sessions we have on offer.  The courses are split between ‘Core’ and ‘Transitional’.  The Core sessions are essential skills employees should know/have and Transitional sessions are additional skills that employees may benefit from personally and professionally.

Once you find a session you would like to attend, please click on the title of that session and enroll yourself onto the course.  It will then take you through to the course details.  It will also show all the upcoming workshop sessions that we have available for you to book onto.  You will be able to sign up to that even by clicking the 'sign-up' button.  If there are no available upcoming dates, there is a ‘declare interest’ button for you to show interest in the course.

Once you have booked onto the course, you should receive an email (usually in your junk) to confirm your place on the course, or this will also show in your ‘My Bookings’ under ‘My Learning’ on the links at the top of the page.  If you do not receive either of these please get in contact with the Workforce Development Team where we can assist you.

If you need to return to the course at any time or would like to review what you have completed, please click on ‘My Learning’ then ‘Record of Learning’ at the top of the page.  This will show you all courses you are enrolled on and completed courses with completion dates for your information.
