Online learning has been available for a long time, but it has really come to the fore with so many of us in lockdown. Besides this obvious advantage at this time, what are the real benefits of developing yourself using online training?

I have run a number of IT courses for HMRC offices in Northampton, Peterborough and Luton over the past few months and had some more scheduled in the diary. Then everything changed with the Covid-19 virus doing its worst and effectively shutting down working life as we know it.

We had to think of a way of running the course remotely.

TCHC are delighted to announce we are working alongside PeoplePlus in the Greater Birmingham and Solihull area to deliver the Skills Support for Workforce. It is a free service, created to help small to medium-sized employers turn their business growth plans into reality by up-skilling their existing workforce. We can work with employers to identify their skills gaps and recommend bespoke training plans which will give their workforce the skills they need to grow the business. And the best bit – we even deliver the training for free.

We wanted a site that would improve the user experience and make it easy for you to navigate to the pages you need. No longer is there a big list of our products and services, now our improved menu items and categories will direct you quickly to where you need to be.

An education provider, designed to help those who have “fallen through the cracks”, has urged more young people around Sudbury to try the scheme out, as the company marked a significant milestone.

TCHC, which opened a branch in Sudbury back in January, staged celebrations on Thursday, in honour of the company’s 15th anniversary since launching, while students also produced articles about the provider using their newly-learned skills.
