With our membership spanning the length and breadth of Western Australia, finding a location that is convenient (and not too costly) for even a portion of our members to attend is a near impossibility. Linkwest Learning Online addresses this issue, by enabling enrolled users to undertake training online.
At the moment, many of our online courses are accompanied by a teleconference i.e. users dial into a teleconferecne hosted by one of our trainers, while using the materials provided online. To further improve the delivery, we are looking at making the learning completely independent, so users can login when they like, and learn at their own pace.
We are also developing a range of courses for use by our Centres. These courses, which embed language and literacy skills, can be downloaded from Linkwest learning Online and delivered by Centres to their members.
