eLearning is often only thought of as a broad solution to industry onboarding, staff development, or as a way to deliver distance learning in the community. However, eLearning is often overlooked as an ideal way to deliver training needed by those learners embarking on their apprenticeship journeys. Certainly, where I work, eLearning is often misconstrued as a training method only applicable to those based in remote locations or the unemployed. The true facts couldn’t be further from the truth. eLearning has always been and will continue to be, a fantastic resource for all.eLearning has never been more useful within the UK apprenticeship sector than at present. With the recent introduction of endpoint assessment, materials useful to the advancement of a learner’s theoretical understanding of key topics are proving to be almost priceless. For those who may be unaware, End Point Assessment (EPA) means that instead of an apprentice being assessed continually throughout their course, they now have to undertake a final assessment or range of assessments to complete their qualification. The EPA is designed to test whether the apprentice has gained the skills, knowledge, and behaviors outlined in the assessment standard. The EPA can take many forms, for example; tests, examinations, professional discussions, workplace observations, portfolios of work or completed assignments. Learners need materials to help them prepare for endpoint assessment. Making these materials interactive and engaging is where eLearning comes into its element.
