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.

With the onset of an arduous economic recovery, Britain faces some hard challenges ahead. For the economy to sustain growth businesses must act now to ensure that they can confront these challenges head on. Proficient management is vital to business success. Knowledge-Web fully recognises the importance of this and through a fully funded management apprenticeship; the benefits to both individual and business alike are paramount.
More and more businesses are opting to take on apprentices because it’s a great way of fostering the talent from within. Their relevance to business in today’s economic climate is becoming more evident, as Diane Robinson, business development manager at Southport College explains.
“They are now more relevant to today’s business needs and cover the majority of job roles. There are 200 different apprenticeship programmes available in 80 different sectors and around 240,000 apprentices in England.”
According to the MSC (Management Standards Centre) the 008/2009 academic year saw a 36% increase in apprenticeships.
A recent CMI (Chartered Management Institute) revealed many of the key benefits of a management apprenticeship. 69% of respondents felt that management apprenticeships were an effective way of developing management and leadership skills. Within the course the individual can experience a great mix of theory and practice, ensuring that they have the required skills to improve performance.
Being a good manager requires self confidence, receptiveness to training and a good attendance record. Knowledge-Web has the funding to provide you and your business with these essential skills. CMI research suggests that 71% of managers feel that apprentices show higher levels of loyalty. A solid working relationship can envelop over the course of the apprenticeship. Furthermore, 81% of those surveyed argued that their needs to be a greater number of progression routes than the graduate path.
