Online and Blended Learning
"It is all about the ease of keeping track of who has completed the training or where people are at in their training, the visibility of where people are; it is a simple and effective e-learning system and can be delivered anywhere in the world, plus the savings on costs."
“I found the course very in depth but very relevant to modern day standards, with a tremendous amount of information included. The information in the form of videos and lessons was very good, especially the video showing an assessor with a candidate giving feedback. Everyone can learn from this approach, and people will benefit.”
"I would definitely recommend this course, I am sure this will help me in the future to complete my own staff portfolios."
"Very good workbook and examples given throughout the course."
"It has helped me manage my time and assess my team in a more practical way."
"I found the assessor course to be very effective when I was gathering my evidence, making me realise just how important it is to be able to correctly assess someone's knowledge and competency and how that can reflect on their abilities in the workplace."
"The course was ideally suited and helped me to refresh on some points and develop awareness and new skills in others. The course will be invaluable in helping me with my role back in the workplace."
"The course provides very effective guidance in how to plan training and assessment. The trainer was always available to answer the questions I had for him and kept in touch through the whole proces. Thank you."
"Lovely trainers. Very enthusiastic about the material which rubs off on people. Always available for comment or help through phone or email no matter what day or time. Very good."
"This course has encouraged me to reach deeper into the technical side of my role. This in turn will help me develop my skills further. I will highly recommend this course to my colleagues."
In January 2015, we launched our online and blended learning portal PLUS enabling us to provide online, cost effective, high quality training.
PLUS enables us to support those who prefer to learn online, it allows us to bring groups of learners together for online meetings, it allows us to extend the learning process through a combination of workshops and online learning.
Learners tell us PLUS is engaging, easy to use and the support from their trainers has been fantastic. Our client training managers make use of the client reporting to track progress and they appreciate the cost savings. Our Polaris Learning trainers find it is a great way to provide bite-sized learning.
TRAINING AND QUALIFICATIONS ON PLUS
We offer a wide range of training and qualifications on PLUS, making the most of the brilliance of blended and helping you to keep your team competent:
ENHANCING THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR LEARNERS
A wide range of media, activities and tools to take learners through the learning cycle including videos, supporting notes, visual lessons and more.
We provide personalised feedback on the activities and tasks. This encourages the learners to think about what they are learning and how they can apply this new knowledge.
The ‘My Progress Report’ helps learners to see how much they have achieved, and also to help them re-visit where they left off on returning to their course on PLUS.
We work hard to build a good rapport with each learner, understanding their job role, where they need extra help and supporting them through their training and qualification.
KEY BENEFITS ON PLUS FOR TRAINING AND COMPETENCY MANAGERS
Our client reporting is built in as standard so whether you have one learner or many to look after, we can provide you with client access so that you can monitor the progress of each learner.
We can also build in your paperwork and process into the training where this is beneficial. This can be done in a number of ways including adding materials into PLUS, creating short videos with your key messages or asking the learners to refer to your paperwork and processes.
And just as importantly, online and blended learning provides a way for training and competency managers to offer cost effective, high quality learning.
OUR CLIENTS SAY IT BEST…
15 rigs, 2 regions, 450 assessors, 10 consultants, 1 learning platform, 90% complete and counting…
Polaris Learning has worked in partnership with a global drilling contractor based in Singapore to provide an innovative programme of assessor and internal verifier training in support of the launch of their Competence Assurance System across the organisation’s fleet of rigs.
The training was rolled out across 15 rigs working throughout south-east Asia and Africa.
The company’s supervisors completed the online assessor training programme via our online learning portal PLUS.
Each rig was appointed a dedicated consultant to support, monitor and provide feedback to those participating on the programme.
We were also commissioned to develop SCORM compliant refresher packages for both assessor and internal verifiers which were to be hosted by the client on their learning management system.
