Why Should I Choose e-Learning?

Time for training

While the time savings vary greatly, a rough estimate is that managers in the workplace used to spend 40% of their time delivering training before online courses became available. E-learning is much more economical in terms of both time and money than conventional face-to-face training. 


A growing number of employers are turning to online employee training for an effective, interactive way for employees to learn.  Our training offers you the flexibility of starting and finishing a course when it is convenient for you and you can pause the training to pick it up again at a later time.


We are confident that the eLearning training courses offer best value for money.


We will be working to ensure the eLearning courses remain relevant and appropriate for the audience. At the end of the day we want you to succeed.

Environmental Impact

For Lancaster City Council, and responsible employers, an organisation’s carbon footprint is of high importance. Undertaking training on-line reduces the need for trainers and trainees to meet up formally to receive training.



How often do you need to refresh courses?

Some professional bodies recommend courses are undertaken at regular intervals, for instance, the level 2 food safety courses should be undertaken once every three years. Should you have specific queries on this please contact us for advice.

It’s flexible and discreet

Not all students feel comfortable in a classroom environment nor do they find it easy to attend training course venues while balancing work and home life. These courses allow you to learn at your own pace and at a time to suit.
