As the economic recovery shows signs of slight improvement, the use of E-learning as a platform for training staff is increasing at a swift rate.
E-learning is increasingly being viewed as a simpler, cost-effective method of training staff. According to recent research by Keynote, 62% of all training was delivered person to person in 2009. In 2010 this figure is expected to fall to 50%. Coupled with these statistics is the fact that sales generated by this method of training have risen from 20.4% in 2005 to 32% in 2009.
The recession may have a lot to do with this. Knowledge-Web understands that in the current economic climate, the need for a cost-effective and flexible platform for learning is required within business, not only to improve staff performance but to keep up with the current trends of staff training.
Knowledge-Web offers E-Learning courses in a wide spectrum across the workforce. An ILM E-learning course in Team Leading is just one of these.
Through the specially designed, ILM approved course, your staff can develop existing skills in team leadership and once the award is achieved they can progress further to obtain the ILM Certificate in Team Leading (Award or Certificate). These skills are transferable across all sectors of the workforce and will prove to be invaluable in these harsh economic times.
E-Learning is becoming a considerable part of the training options available to businesses. This is because of the flexibility they offer, their effectiveness at reducing costs and because of the huge variety of training needs, an e-learning course can offer a moiré diverse learning environment than the more traditional classroom style of staff training.
It is clear to see why E-learning courses are becoming so popular and many smaller businesses are bringing themselves forward and modernising the way they train their staff.
Through Knowledge-Web your business can stay on top and lead the way into a successful and pain-free economic recovery.

In a letter to 100 of London’s top financial and creative companies, Mayor of London Boris Johnson has urged the need for a further 20,000 apprenticeships to be provided. With university places proving difficult for school leavers to gain, the market for apprenticeships is clearly competitive.
Craig Abrahart, who is an operating director at notgoingtouni.co.uk, stated further.
“The key to actually securing a place is to get young people’s minds into thinking about applying in October the previous year to get their name out and get their CV to a company.”
The fresh drive aimed at companies like Morgan Stanley, Price Waterhouse Cooper, Google and Bsky B, outlines the need for companies to ensure a smoother economic recovery. Boris went on to say…
“It has never been more important to invest in skilling London’s workforce for the future to drive our economy forward and ensure London remains competitive on the global stage.”
Knowledge-Web believes that both the employer and employee can benefit from an apprenticeship in all areas of the workforce. Team-leading is no exception.
Excellent team leaders are critical to an organisation. Individuals who display top leadership skills within a team can inspire those around them and improve all round performance. The skills gained through an apprenticeship with Knowledge-Web are valuable as they are easily transferable, offering an extensive capacity for career development.
A fully-funded Knowledge-Web apprenticeship can aid you in managing your own resources, to develop a fruitful working relationship with co-workers and to build on risk assessment skills.
For the employer this is a real opportunity to make use of the centrally funded initiative. It is vital that companies help to ensure that the recovery is not a slow and painful one. Knowledge-Web has the framework to allow those school-leavers not in higher education to begin their career path. Earning a wage is only the icing on the cake. The tasty filling comes in the form of the experience you can gain and the invaluable skills you will possess once the course is complete.
