Virtual College offers practical online training advice at Made in Yorkshire

Award-winning online training provider, Virtual College, will be showcasing its online training solutions and resources at the Made in Yorkshire 2018 Exhibition.

Made in Yorkshire is a privately run peer group for managing directors and chief executives of manufacturing and engineering firms in Yorkshire from across a wide variety of sectors, including Aerospace, Automotive, Rail, Marine, Medical and Oil & Gas.

The organisation acts as a platform for firms to source and supply with one another, collaborate and improve their businesses – independent of the public sector.

Over a thousand delegates are expected at the full day Made in Yorkshire Exhibition which will be held at the Centenary Pavilion on Elland Road, Leeds on Thursday 17th May.

Created with input from subject matter experts, Virtual College’s engaging online resources can provide a flexible and economical solution for induction and compliance training.

Popular online courses include:

  • The Essentials of GDPR
  • Manual handling in the Workplace
  • An Overview of COSHH

Virtual College’s online learning management system, Enable, records all course allocations, completions and results, allowing learner progress tracking and measurement of training effectiveness.

Local policies, procedures and internal documents can be also uploaded alongside training, while a simple and easy reporting system provides rapid access to evidence of compliance for internal and external requirements.

Virtual College will be on stand 12 at the Made in Yorkshire 2018 Exhibition.

Elaine Hankinson, Virtual College Learning Technology Consultant, commented: ’We are looking forward to meeting delegates face-to-face to discuss their current training challenges and how online learning could help.’
