Engage in Learning

We create courses with specialist practitioners and customer partners based on experience, real situations and current thinking. Visuals don’t decorate, they illustrate. Interactions aren’t page turners, they engage, provide insight and practice.

Choose when you want to learn, complete courses in one go or bite-size sessions. If you pause your learning, your progress is saved. A simple interface and clear signposting to make navigation instinctive.

Every element of our courses has to pass the “So What” test. What will learners be able to actually do as a result? Learners equipped with immediate and practical tools and techniques for more productive meetings, punchier presentations or improved customer satisfaction!

Essential Skillz

Eurotalk Language Courses

Have you ever despaired of learning by repeating apparently meaningless phrases parrot-fashion? So have we! In order to transfer the information you're taking in from your short-term to your long-term memory, the content has to mean something to you. Repetition alone is rarely enough.

It's like going to a new place for the first time when someone else is driving. You're far less likely to remember the route if you aren't behind the wheel because you're not 'involved' in the same way. But, if you're the driver - and particularly if you're asked to take the same journey again shortly after the first trip - your memory will be greatly improved.

This is because new experiences, which form part of our short-term memory, are transferred to our long-term memory by the acts of involvement and repetition and this is why EuroTalk eLearning tests you on what you've learned with quizzes. These help you understand the context and practical meaning of your new language and, by repeatedly asking you to recall what you've learnt, strengthen your long term memory.

Learn iT! Anytime

Learn iT Anytime are experts in the creation of instructional-based online training. Far from simply offering a streamed training video (or “traditional” e-learning), the Learn iT courses are designed to deliver a learning experience, and not just to 'watch someone do it'. Learn iT, the organisation behind the Anytime range is a classroom-based IT training business who recognise that in live training the tutors talk about why you would want to do something, together with real-world applications of the software, and the hidden power-tips. Good tutors also offer frequent recaps to tell you the important points to remember. So Learn iT challenge why these elements are almost always missing in video learning and they put this right… they don't just show, they teach.

In live classes, the tutor explains concepts, shows you how, reviews the important points, and asks you to try it yourself, right? That's how Learn iT Anytime videos work. They even pause themselves while you give your new skills a whirl.

When you learn something new, you have to practice, right? Sometimes new students are at a loss for what they should do to build retention. That's why there are practice assignments, to advise you what to try by yourself. It's like homework that you'll like! Plus, you don't have to turn it in.

Some students like written material to support their learning experience. All students appreciate cheat sheets. Online access to supporting document material is all inclusive.

  • Unique online technology assisted e-assessments which enable assessments for both competency and knowledge based assessment criteria to be achieved entirely online, and remotely, without the need for an assessor to go to the learner's workplace
