Third of workers doing jobs they are not qualified for

November 2011

In today’s ever changing workplace it’s now more important than ever to keep up with the latest developments in your industry, as research shows that 50% of employee skills become outdated in 3 years1.

The global financial crisis has unfortunately meant that many peoples jobs have been put ‘at risk’ and employees are taking on responsibilities which didn’t traditionally fit into their role. In a recent survey, over one third of employees said that they are trying to do jobs they aren’t professionally trained for due to cutbacks in their organisation (Thirdforce).

87% people also stated that they prefer to learn at their own pace rather than in a classroom setting2; for many employees and employers online learning can be the perfect solution to this issue.

Online learning offers many benefits over traditional learning methods, such as reducing travel costs, saving time, increased learner control, being more environmentally friendly and encouraging quieter students to take a more active role in their learning.

Is online learning right for you? Use our checklist to find out!

One quick way to find out if e-learning is the right training method for you is to answer the below questions:

  1. Are you disciplined and well organized?
  2. Are you comfortable using the internet?
  3. Do you struggle to have the time to commute to classes?
  4. Would you like to control your own learning speed and content?
  5. Can you retain information well from reading, listening and watching?

If you answered yes to most or all of these questions then online learning could be the ideal training method for you.

Astutis offer industry recognised health and safety online training qualifications for the IOSH Managing Safely and IOSH Working Safely qualifications, with the online version of the NEBOSH General Certificate and NEBOSH International Certificate starting in 2012.

  • "I enjoyed the course that i took with Astutis, IEMA Environmental Sustainability Skills for Managers. It really well put together, and ultimately I passed the test and gained the certificate, so the information imparted covered the syllabus well. Was a bit surprised to see that the test was Open Book after I'd clicked to 'start' - I'd been revising for a few weeks, if this had been communicated better it might have saved me a bit of anguish!"

  • "I felt a divine prompting to seek my Boss's recommendation when considering another learning partner, and she graciously suggested Astutis. Choosing Astutis turned out to be a decision without regrets. Even when I didn't pass the RA on my first attempt, the Director's response to my inquiries boosted my confidence to request a remark, which was facilitated at no extra cost thanks to the Director's advocacy. Astutis provided unwavering support throughout my journey, from inception to completion. I eagerly anticipate enrolling in additional courses and pursuing a diploma with them."

  • "Nebosh need to be consistent with the marking, I felt the marking can be somehow subjective. Different marker graded same script differently. I failed the first time because someone(marker) didn't understand the guideline and the second marker did mentioned something different. Good study material and content."
