Microsoft Teams work, making online learning work

14 May 2020

Learning through lockdown

Our recent launch of online courses has allowed us to provide people from Greater Manchester and Merseyside, with the opportunity to learn from home during the lockdown. 

With social distancing and government guidelines restricting us from delivering face-to-face learning activities, we have ensured that people can access our courses and can still get a face-to-face learning experience, both with the tutor and each other.


Here at The Job Gym GM, we make our learning inclusive, so that people can share their life experiences and learn from each other. We also understand that in the current climate we are living in, staying connected is important for us, and learners are finding the Microsoft Team virtual classroom, a great place to socialise through a safe online forum. Here's what Jenna shared on our Facebook page, after recently completing some courses.



Real working environment 

We pride ourselves on having a "real working environment", which learners access to gain real craft skills, but under the current climate, that's not been possible.

So that learners can still benefit from our learning facilities, our tutors have been busy developing interactive learning videos, which are being used across relevant courses to give learners a visual guide to the real working environment and an engaging learning experience, to enhance their skills and knowledge.
