The changing face of education and training

Tipperary Education and Training Board (ETB) has continued to support communities, employers and learners which have been impacted Covid-19.

Due to the global pandemic, there has been an immediate shift away from classroom learning to online learning.
TETB and learners across the county have embraced the change and have quickly adapted to new platforms of education delivery.

These methods shift how education and training providers will upskill learners in the future. Greater investments will be made in education and training technology and learners will develop the skills to use these technologies and platforms to progress their careers and create business opportunities.

Learners from TETB’s Multimedia & Social Media online course shown above have spoken about the benefits of the online provision. Sophie Imarzouk reflects the enormous benefits the training has provided; “It has opened a whole new world for me and it is helping my business. I can now create beautiful adverts to advertise. I highly recommend it to anybody for their business. It is boosting mine and makes my adverts more interesting!”

What is an online course?

During this type of education/training you can expect communications with tutors and other students to come via email, electronic forums, videoconferencing, instant messaging and other similar types of computer-based interactions. Online course delivery can often include a learning platform or training system to produce a virtual classroom.
