ThirdForce, a global provider of e-learning and a National Employer Service (NES) approved supplier of Skills for Life training, today launches U-skills, a total solution to help the UK workforce achieve literacy and numeracy targets.
U-skills, is centred on innovative online teaching resources and is designed to help tutors and workplace employers deliver Skills for Life training quickly and effectively.
Lorna Tyrtania, senior product manager of ThirdForce explained: “We are proud to be launching U-skills; our unique blended approach of online e-learning materials with individual face-to-face support enables us to offer a truly scalable, outsourced solution to the Skills for Life challenge.
“The Leitch report highlighted the importance of the role of employers in up-skilling the workforce of UK PLC and, in turn, in raising basic literacy and numeracy standards. It is of vital importance that the UK workforce is given access to effective training programmes in order to have any chance of reaching these goals.
“Employers also face the additional challenge of reconciling Skills for Life commitments and embedding learning within the workplace, alongside the everyday business pressures and targets which can grow exponentially by the day, in the context of an ever more challenging economic climate.”
U-skills breaks new ground in combining diagnostic tools to assess a learner’s level and existing knowledge with a tailor made learning plan and supporting instructional material to teach the additional skills required to progress.
A tailor made Individual Learning Plan (ILP) allows learners to progress at a pace that suits their individual learning needs and results in confident and highly competent staff.
