Within days of the public announcement regarding the closure of schools, Learning Works, a subsidiary of Vassallo Group, switched to online learning via Zoom; the globe’s current go-to online communication platform. Learning Works immediately took action to ensure that classes were carried on as normal and that the students’ educational progress would be maintained even though a physical classroom was not a viable solution.
Some of the courses that are undergoing live online teaching solutions include the Level 1 Award in Maltese as a Foreign Language and Cultural Orientation for non-natives to the island who are looking to integrate into society and improve their chances of employment. Other courses include the Level 3 Award in Healthcare as well as the Level 4 Advanced Award in Healthcare. Such courses are intended for healthcare professionals who are looking to improve their skills in their vocation – a line of career that we now must know how greatly important it is for society.
Some other courses that are currently taking place online via Zoom include the Level 4 Award in Psychology for Sports and Exercise and the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management.
Future courses that will be hosted online during this period of social distancing and caution include the Level 2 Award in Maltese as a Foreign Language and Cultural Orientation, the Level 4 Award in Mental Health Support and Care as well as the Level 4 Award in Nutrition for Sports and Physical Activity. Every course will be available online to ensure that all our students, current and prospective, can improve their education while staying home and staying safe.
As part of the online strategy, an online application and payment system has been launched in order to make application and payment for online courses much easier. Applying for courses can now all be handled online, including official document uploads that may be necessary for admission to a specific course.
By adapting to the ‘new normal’ that we are about to experience in life, Learning Works is providing opportunity and possibilities to learn from the comfort of your own home, within your schedule while focusing on the most important aspect of your life; health, education and happiness. Learning Works aims to keep all students engaged and excited to learn more and improve their chances in their professional life.
