Seventeen Centre Managers and their representatives participated in a training workshop on Blended Learning in TVET hosted by the National Training Agency at the Kirani James National Stadium on Wednesday 24 March 2021.
The Workshop was intended to be an introduction of blended learning concepts to Training Centre Managers as the GNTA seeks to address and provide support in the delivery of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in a time of COVID-19 which in 2020 significantly affected programme deliveries until alternative structures could be put in place.
Enterprise-Based Training Officer, Ricardo Nicholas, presented on the definitions, benefits of blended learning, design approaches, best practices for the design and implementation of blended learning and the pitfalls of implementation while the Training Support Coordinator, Marlene Finlay and the Monitoring and Evaluation Officer, Gordon Williams shared the presentation on the Quality Framework for Blended Learning.
Participants attending the workshop felt it exceeded their expectations in terms of content and what they gained in new knowledge and that the quality of delivery was excellent. They said the session was beneficial to their operations as training institutions and would recommend any future workshops to other training providers.
