Why Choose e-Careers?

e-Careers has partnered with The Learning Tree, to offer a range of courses, delivered via high-tech classrooms or virtual learning, depending on your requirement.

We are an award-winning, established eLearning course provider, with over 16 years’ experience in the industry.  We offer high-quality training courses at competitive prices.

What will I learn on this course? 

This course will enable you to learn how to develop the necessary behaviours and skills to help you focus on your main purpose at work and to work effectively with colleagues. You will also develop your expertise and be able to build a reputation for delivering results.

You’ll learn how to add value to your organisation by building upon and developing your strengths and skills and get the best results out of those you work with. Finally, develop the ability to maintain focus in high-pressured situations and leverage your professional reputation. 

Classroom-based Training 

 e-Careers were originally an online learning organisation but over time we’ve established additional learning methods, to provide our delegates with a variety of study options, including:

  • Bespoke training
  • Classroom-based training
  • On-site training
  • LiveOnline (virtual learning)

The Classrooms

Our classroom training centre is in London, Euston, conveniently located directly opposite Euston station, making transport and accessibility easier.

Our clean, high-tech classrooms provide a comfortable learning environment for our delegates, and we pride ourselves on providing a first-class training experience. You’ll notice this from your first steps in our London training centre, right through to your last day on the course, helping you to feel welcomed and comfortable. 

Each classroom has been designed to perfectly suit the courses being offered. For example, our Cyber Security classrooms come kitted out with a range of high specification PC’s (typically i7’s), with monitors for you to work through the practical assignments and an additional vertical screen to view your digital course materials.

Your instructor will use cutting-edge technology to ensure a high-quality learning experience for all delegates, including the latest annotation hardware and software.  

Alternatives to Classroom-based study

We understand that not every delegate has the same date availability or can’t make it to London, so we have created a range of suitable alternatives, including:  

  • LiveOnline – This is our virtual classroom option. Be a fully participating and integrated member of the classroom but from the comfort of your own home or office. We supply you with a headset (to enable you to speak with the class and course instructor), course materials and everything you need to fully participate with the class. 
  • eLearning – This is our Online/ Distance learning option. If a classroom or LiveOnline option are unsuitable for your requirements, we do offer a full online course option, where you can study at your own pace and in your own time.
