Free eLearning Courses for Schools and Colleges

As we all learn to re-adjust to new ways of working, we are aware that many education providers are supporting their learners with on-line lessons.

To support this, we are offering all secondary schools, colleges and training providers free* AIM eLearning courses (see list below).

Courses are non-accredited but can be used as a learning resource towards some AIM Qualifications and offer:

  • interactive activities to check learner understanding
  • ‘bite-sized’ units of 20-30 minutes
  • easy navigation and attractive graphics
  • extension activities via links and videos
  • total flexibility in relation to cohort-size, mode of delivery and location of learners
  • preparation for learners’ final assessments

These packages are tried and tested and are currently used by FE colleges, adult and community learning, offender learning and private training providers to improve learner experience, achievement and retention.

Learners work at their own pace through interactive ‘bite-sized’ modules and all activity and achievement are tracked on a learning management system (LMS) for Ofsted and management reporting.

These user-friendly solutions are quickly and easily implemented.

Included in our e-learning library is our Study Skills units which form the basis of our Access to HE courses. These help learners prepare for their Access course and help to learn the key skills necessary to be successful at Higher Education.
