Save Costs

E-Learning

Thames Valley Chamber has formed a partnership with e-Careers, a business with talented educationalists who support over 325,000 students all over the world. e-Careers consists of around 200 individuals, who all specialise in their own aspects of combining education with technology. The company has established relationships with many awarding bodies, instructors and educational institutions to bring its students training and qualifications in an E-Learning format.

 

 

 

 

There are many advantages of E-Learning:

  • Cost effective – minimises human, travel and classroom costs
  • Flexible – studying can be considered as “on demand”. You are in control of where and when you want to learn
  • Up to date – all training material can be kept up to date and all students would automatically learn from the latest content
  • Evidence – progress tracking, completion reports and downloadable certificates ensure that everything learned is validated
  • Consistent – It provides a consistent message, therefore eliminating problems with different instructors teaching different material in different styles
  • Environmentally friendly – you don’t need to travel and it doesn’t consume vast amounts of paper correspondence

Courses available to members include project management, finance, IT and digital media.
