How is it delivered?
The Homeworking Awareness course is delivered electronically and can be accessed by trainees either online or through a computer network. Each employee can use their own electronic device and progress through the modules at their own pace, as they can save their progress and return to complete the course at a later time.
After they have completed all of the units, trainees will complete an assessment to demonstrate their knowledge. One of the main benefits of offering the course in this way is that you can reduce your organisation’s training costs while still fulfilling your statutory obligation.
