Description:

V&C Select™ – the flexible classroom

This new approach provides an exciting new opportunity for attending courses where time, geographical location, cost of travel and accommodation or lack of ‘quality alternatives’ are prohibitive factors to people having access to effective training.

V&C Select™ is about delivering flexibility and choice as well as a quality experience and therefore total delegate class sizes will be the same as with a ‘classic’ instructor-led course.

V&C Select™ Technology

Whilst the concept is simple, what really makes V&C Select™ unique is the technology that underpins it. Using the latest collaborative tools and technologies, we offer a solution where the classroom and virtual delegate attend the same course. The in-class experience is exactly the same as a standard instructor-led course and the remote delegate receives a browser based interface that allows them to see and hear the tutor and classroom delegates, and they can communicate in real time.

If the tutor is discussing the supporting slides or demonstrating on the interactive whiteboard– the interface is ‘tuned’ to ensure the remote delegate has the same experience. All delegates (in class and remote) are provided with dedicated learning labs for a quality 'hands-on' experience. If assistance is required, the tutor can address the full group, or any virtual individual via a quick and easy private call function (in the interface) to ensure all delegates get the support they require.

V&C Select™ Benefits

  • Learn at home, office, or anywhere you have an internet connection
  • Save time and money by avoiding travel and accommodation charges
  • Same expert instructors as our ‘classic’ classroom training
  • Same content and official materials (where applicable) and support for all delegates
  • To have the flexibility to start the course as a classroom delegate and to have the choice how to complete the remaining days (as a classroom or virtual delegate)
  • Dedicated ‘hands-on’ Lab access for full duration of class
  • Effective and interactive learning for employees across multiple locations

Delegates will be sent pre-course reading which must be completed prior to attending the course. The standard recommended reading time is 10 hours

Delegates will take the PRINCE2® Foundation exam at the end of day 3 of this course.

Exam fee is included in the list price.
