Ongoing training and development can be beneficial for both individuals and businesses and technology is increasingly playing an important role in this. This is why our very own virtual classroom, Live Online, is proving incredibly popular. By choosing to take part in one of the courses delivered via our Live Online platform, you won’t have to worry about losing precious time in work. You can access learning from the comfort of your own desk if you have a busy schedule, or from home – wherever is most convenient for you. But it has other added benefits such as drastically reducing travel time and carbon emissions; giving you the opportunity to access and review course content before the start of your course as you’ll receive hard copies of the learning materials in advance; and also the ability to review course learnings after the course, anytime, anywhere through recordings of the live sessions. So, now that we’ve identified some of the benefits of our virtual classroom, let’s take a look at what’s new to Kaplan Altior’s Live Online programme this summer.

 

Get qualified
If you are a trainee solicitor, you know it is crucial to complete the Professional Skills Course (PSC) to develop the necessary skills and gain the knowledge needed to become a competent and effective, practising solicitor. If you are worried about taking time off to complete training courses, we currently offer the opportunity to take PSC core modules through Live Online. We have also expanded our range of PSC elective options so that you can continue your professional development without leaving the office. But if you feel like you’re going to miss out on critical information by doing so, you have nothing to worry about. We can guarantee that the experience is just as engaging as if you were taking a classroom-based training session and the content is tailored to this delivery method, designed and delivered by our expert trainers. What’s more with Live Online, you can always refer back to learning materials whenever you want, which is invaluable when it comes to exam revision.

 

Continuing your development
Our CPD offering is gradually expanding and now includes a wide variety of programmes from interpersonal skills, to management, as well as our newly introduced Compliance offering. Whether you’re a solicitor or a compliance officer, as a professional operating in the legal sector, you know how important it is to be aware of risks and challenges outlined in the SRA’s Risk Outlook every year. By choosing Live Online training, you will be able to integrate the course into your busy day, ensuring you have the right knowledge to comply with the requirements of the SRA Handbook. Also, as management skills become a top priority whether you’re managing yourself, others or the firm, our Management and Leadership courses have also grown in popularity. All of them are available via Live Online and accessible even if you are off site.

 

Enhance your service offering
A new addition to Live Online is our popular Higher Rights of Audience (HRA) course. This course really lends itself to a blended learning approach with the practical skills development taking place in the classroom to ensure you’re ready for your practical assessment and the more theoretical written training taking place in our online classroom, with access to recordings of the session after the live event to ensure your revision is as easy as can be. We developed this blended programme in order to help future advocates have the best chance at succeeding in their HRA assessments and to provide a flexible, efficient approach with less time out of the office needed but still the same level of interaction and support from our trainers.

 

So, whether you are worried about leaving the office and sacrificing your training plans or perhaps you’re an introvert at heart, consider our Live Online learning platform particularly for your PSC, CPD and HRA development. We know that the job can get extremely busy but our learning platform can give you added flexibility to enable you to learn at your own pace without feeling the pressure of attending a lesson in person, helping you to manage your workload too. Live Online is highly engaging with many opportunities to interact with other students and trainers and we encourage questions just as we would in a face-to-face environment. But above all, you can rest assured that the course content delivered by our expert trainers will always meet our high standards, which is why this platform has proved so popular already, seeing over 250 firms undertake their learning in this way.
