With over 60 courses in our Workforce Induction category, you’re likely to find what you’re looking for as a starter in a new industry (or even if you’re looking to refresh your knowledge and skills).
You can hone in on a specific industry or role (including the food industry, roles within the health, social or childcare space, or roles involving data protection and security) for relevant classes, or browse the rest of our courses for some more general knowledge about how best to conduct yourself in the workplace, both individually and around others.
Many of our courses listed will help to ensure you’re adhering to all the rules and guidelines as an employee, and also make sure you are aware of how to help yourself and others in different types of situations. As an employee, you’re bound to encounter problems you’re not exactly sure how to solve – and we’re hoping you’ll learn them here through our short, engaging e-training courses.
