The Benefits Of Virtual Classroom Learning:



With the recent outbreak of the coronavirus, businesses are having to embrace remote working more than ever before. Through online learning you have the flexibility to learn from the comfort of your own home. 



It’s very simple to book and attend on our virtual classroom online courses. You can book via our website or by speaking to one of our education consultants. You can reach us by phone 0161 509 2999 or by email [email protected].

Once your booking is confirmed you will be sent full instruction on how to join the course along with any pre-course material that you may require. In order to join your course, you will require internet connection, and ideally but not essential, a computer with a camera and microphone.

And don’t worry if you’re feeling technically challenged, our tutors and operations team will be on hand to offer joining support to anyone that requires it.



We have a fantastic range of courses now available online. Our course content spans subjects such as leadership and management, corporate governance, marketing, finance, agile working, coaching and mentoring, plus much more. You can view the full list of courses available via the virtual classroom here.


No Travel

With everything you need delivered via your computer, there’s no need to travel. Allowing you to more effectively use of your time, and reducing the need for any non-essential travel during times of health risks.


Cost savings

Delivering our courses via the internet means that we can deliver the same learning outcomes and course content for a heavily reduced price. We don’t have to pay for venues and printed materials like we do with our face to face delivered courses, and these savings are passed onto our learners. Giving you the same quality learning experience at a fraction of the price.



Through virtual attendance on one of our courses, you will meet a range of like-minded individuals from all sectors and industries. Participating in group discussions will allow you to share your experiences and hear from others, which can often form a fundamental part of your learning with us. You’ll have the opportunity to make solid connections with other delegates which can prove incredibly beneficial in the short, mid and long term.


Knowledge retention

Online courses can help you to retain and remember information in a more effective way than some face to face delivery. Through interactive sessions, tasks and video content we will ensure you are challenged throughout your learning to make the experience as impactful and beneficial as possible.


Post course support

Your learning journey doesn’t end when your online course comes to a close. Our tutors are on hand to offer ongoing support and advice should you need it. You’ll also receive a recording of the full course delivery, plus downloads of the course content and activities. So you can refresh on the tools and skills you have learnt at any point in the future.
