Live Online Learning for NHS Trusts

 Delivered for the NHS, by the NHS.

Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (GSTT) is now offering a complete service to upskill NHS trainers to become globally-recognised Certified Online Learning Facilitators.

The highly-respected Certified Online Learning Facilitator (COLF) programme, designed by the Learning and Performance Institute, has enabled thousands of trainers worldwide to upgrade their classroom skills for the online environment – and train more people for less.

The Guy’s and St Thomas’ Trust brings the added dimension of real-world NHS expertise, technical skills and intellectual capital to deliver a highly relevant COLF programme for those in your NHS Trust learning team.

 Why live online learning?

Live Online Learning blends the best of e-learning and traditional classroom sessions to create a highly interactive, instructor-led, online environment where remote learners can absorb course material and collaborate with their fellow classmates in a virtual classroom. Find out more.

Studies conducted by the LPI and other research bodies show that live online learning is taking precedence over traditional classroom training. Benefits such as reduced travel time and accommodation costs, faster deployment of knowledge and skills and less time away from the job, mean that learning can be delivered in greater volume when demanded by the business.
