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

LiveOnline Learning

Currently, 25% of all classes are delivered through LiveOnline, so if you can’t make it to our London, Euston location for any reason, this option is the ideal solution for you. You’ll also be happy to note that the pass marks are the same for both classroom and LiveOnline delegates.

To ensure your experience is interactive and of high-quality, we provide each LiveOnline delegate with a headphone and microphone headset (worth £35) ahead of your start date, so that you can interact with your classroom, live and in real-time. As well as your headset, any manuals or course reading materials will be sent out to you around 3-5 weeks before your course commences. You’ll also gain access to the trainer for one hour (available after course, via phone or skype).

Each of our classers are equipped with high technology to be able to successfully deliver courses through LiveOnline, including:

  • Wide screen cameras – Delivering clear visibility of both the class and the trainer
  • Projector and whiteboard – Materials are projected onto a full white wall
  • Latest annotation hardware and software – Providing greater visibility for your LiveOnline screen
  • Electronic Mat – Each trainer has access to an electronic mat, which when stood on and off switches camera angles between their face and the whiteboard, helping to provide a better visible learning experience
  • Microphones - All trainers have a microphone so the whole class (and especially the LiveOnline learners) can better hear the trainers loud and clear. While delegates learning through LiveOnline are equipped with a microphone headset, classroom attendees will have access to a microphone (one per desk of two delegates) and speaker system. When questions arise, everyone can both speak and hear clearly

Softskills courses which require breakout sessions in small groups, also involve the LiveOnline delegate, through a shared screen and camera, with full visibility and microphone access. This ensures each delegate (both in the classroom and external locations via LiveOnline) has the opportunity to be involved in the interactive lessons.

If LiveOnline delegates experience any technical difficulties or questions, there is a fully managed control centre, who will assist each delegate. Response times sit at 45 seconds and each session is constantly monitored by a technical team.

Prices include all training, manuals, pre-course reading material, exams and 1 hour one-one access to the trainer).
