Online Course

Bite-sized videos to help understand then absorb the learning, by being online I was able to learn at times convenient to me, classroom based activity can often interrupt learning due to different learners and their styles, but this worked for me.”  – Paul Skinner, Barclays Bank.

“The online training was simple to use and the modular approach made it easy to fit in learning sessions around my working day. The videos helped bring the text to life and made learning fun as well as informative.” – Neil Budd, Barclays Bank.
