Innovative Alliance diversifies its training by introducing free online courses

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 free online courses.

The launch of these new online courses will enable the adult education training provider to continue providing support. IA’s focus is on individuals and businesses throughout the Liverpool City Region. Its ultimate aim is to support the city region and to help rebuild its economic strength. One way to achieve this is through training future workforces. As we look to return to some degree of normality in the coming weeks, months and years, IA is working hard to make online courses more easily accessible.

The online platform will complement the training organisations’ already established face-to-face delivery. This focuses on equipping participants with theoretical and practical knowledge needed to enter new roles. Skills and qualifications that individuals can work on range from warehousing to business administration. Here is a full list of the courses available through Innovative Alliance.

  • Warehousing
  • Business administration
  • Construction
  • Health and Social Care
  • Customer Service

Similarly, 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. They will also work directly with Innovative Alliance’s trained Tutors. Lastly, individuals will receive nationally recognised qualifications upon completion. This support and interaction is what sets the training apart from many other online courses. Participants studying with IA online will receive as much support and guidance as those who attend a face-to-face course.

“Over the past 12 months, we have diversified our online courses and training.” – Ian Green

Upon completion of the course, participants will have access to the training provider’s Learner Engagement Team. Essentially, they 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.”

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