Innovative Alliance diversifies its offer to meet training and skills needs

As society looks to adapt to a new sense of ‘normality’ due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, Innovative Alliance (IA) is also adapting its training and skills solutions to meet the new demand by launching a new portfolio of online courses.

The launch of these new online courses will enable the adult education training provider to continue supporting individuals and businesses throughout the Liverpool City Region. Its ultimate aim is to support the city region to rebuild its economic strength, by training future workforces, as we look to return to some degree of normality in the coming weeks, months and years.

The online platform will complement the training organisations’ already established face-to-face delivery. This focuses on equipping participants with the theoretical and practical knowledge, skills and qualifications to enter roles in the likes of warehousing, business administration, construction, health and social care and customer service. The new online solution will initially offer training in health and social care, warehousing and storage and customer service.

Participants studying one of these fully funded, online courses will receive interactive, ongoing coaching and support from one of Innovative Alliance’s trained Tutors, as well as a nationally recognised qualification upon completion. This support and interaction is what sets the training apart from many other online courses, where remote, individual learning is normally expected. Instead, participants studying with Innovative Alliance online will receive as much support and guidance as those who attend a face-to-face course.

Upon completion of the course, participants will have access to the training provider’s Learner Engagement Team, who will work with them to help secure further training or employment.

Ian Green, CEO of Innovative Alliance said;

“IA prides itself on adapting and supporting our learners, partners and employers. Over the past 12 months, we have diversified our training to work across a broader selection of sectors and backgrounds, and now we are further diversifying our offer to meet a new digital demand.

“We know that unemployment is higher in our city region compared to other parts of the country, and with the Coronavirus outbreak, these figures are likely to increase. IA is here to offer that helping hand to adults who are either looking to re-enter the labour market, or who are looking to retrain and upskill. The introduction of our online courses simply adds another layer of opportunity for individuals, who for many reasons may not feel comfortable or be able to attend a face-to-face course.

“But our consistent high standards and caring, compassionate approach to delivery will not be compromised. Delegates attending one of our online courses can still expect to receive the same levels of exceptional delivery and support from our staff.”

This high level of delivery and support was evidenced in the Ofsted monitoring visit which took place in 2019.
