A Quick and Easy Way for job Seekers to Gain Valuable Soft Skills Qualifications

The Academy of Vocational and Professional Training (AVPT) is pioneering a way for people to gain valuable new training with the focus on the soft skills that can often be the deciding factor when it comes to a potential employer’s decision after an interview.

The tutor, course material and everything else can easily be accessed whenever is convenient. This drastically cuts down on the time it takes to qualify.

Mobile learning is the way forward as 56% of all people on Earth have a smart phone with 50% of those people using mobile as their primary gateway to the Internet (State of Mobile Survey 2013). Because most of us have a phone or tablet glued to our hands at all times, it makes sense to use that time wisely and invest in our own futures.

This sort of learning allows people to gain new qualifications in a matter of weeks with AVPT’s Express Courses and supportive online Virtual Tutors for each student.

Diane Shawe the CEO of Academy of Vocational and Professional training says “The whole country needs to invest in ways to help up-skill every individual so that they can either find work or generate their own income from supplying a service or product” she goes on to say “we need to utilise technology, embrace more adaptable ways of empowering individuals to lead a responsible, inclusive and financially rewarding life so as to buck the increasing trend of unemployment”

Delegates can learn anything from leadership and project management skills to social media and care to skills, hair and beauty through to Security and hospitality.

With so few jobs around at the moment, it’s these skills and certifications that could mean the difference between a job offer, resuming the job hunt or a better change at succeeding in business. Experience and references might tell the story of these skills but it’s accredited certifications that prove their existence.

AVPT understands the competitive job market and has created these courses to help people improve their skill set in the most efficient amount of time possible.

About the Company

AVPT is the only UK Globally Accredited online and workshop based provider of over 390 Soft Skills courses using a cutting edge, proprietary online Learning Management system.

It takes an awful lot of time and effort to create a training course; Designing, researching, writing, and appropriately presenting it. Especially difficult though, even more so is the time taken to create an on-line learning system to work fluently and securely with various technologies. We know this because we have done just this.

What most people, employers, entrepreneurs and even some educational institutions do not have in today’s current environment is time the necessary resources and the infrastructure they need to support and achieve their learning objectives. Both our online and workshop based courses are a cost effective way to deliver and up-skill a wide cross section of our society. Designed to be student (user) centric and time sensitive. We believe that online courses can save time, are easily scalable, reduced acquisition costs per person, measurable, provide a flexible virtual support system, Less paper/ink (environmentally green!) and are generally less stressful owing to their user led flexibility!

Mobile LMS

Learning Management Solution (LMS) & Portal Hub

The Academy of Vocational and Professional Training has a sophisticated LMS solution that is not built on a static system. Yet the user interface is clean, clear, accessible, and easy to understand and work through. It uses little bandwidth, making it quick to load and use, and accessible on a scalable model. Globalisation has changed the way we communicate, do business and relate to each other and technology can help to up-skill a far wider audience.

In today’s ever changing environment, the real promise experts say, is providing learning experiences that are more tailored to individual students that enables more “learning by doing,” which many students find more engaging and useful. Our ‘Chunked’ teaching approach revolutionises the learning experience.

Social Impact

The importance of transferable skills. There can be no doubt about the importance of a degree and a solid academic background but it’s not the only thing that employers will be interested in. Especially where there is strong competition for entry to a job, employers have to find a way to choose. Educators must focus on the personal qualities and skills that can be developed while studying, and acquired as information in mutual exchanges of information. In a competitive employment climate, these can be just as (or more) important to employers as a degree certificate. Employers are looking for people with transferable skills.
