Embark Training Case Study

Health and Social Care Sector

On 1 August 2019, Fairway Training launched its exciting new trading style and brand ‘Embark Training’.

Embark Training will build on the outstanding performance and national reputation of Fairway Training, which has delivered almost a quarter of a million courses and qualifications across the nation, supplying training to many of  the top 20 care providers in the UK. Clients include organisations such as national healthcare support services, the UK’s largest housing associations, city councils and small independent care homes.

‘Embark Training is now focussing on the evolution of the ‘Learner Journey’,’ says Operations Director, Alex O’Neill.

‘It’s a concept which can be applied to people from the ‘hard to reach and unemployed’ to those looking for career change or career development.’

‘Embark Training will offer sector-based work academies to the entire health and social care sector, through blended learning packages.’

‘Blended Learning packages are a mix of short-course, classroom-based training, online VideoTile training and Virtual Reality learning – the next big step in technological training development.’

‘This approach ensures clients receive maximum value from their training budget by tapping into the vast portfolio of online learning that Videotile and Embark have made available.’

‘Employees can complete VideoTile courses off-site, at their own convenience, freeing up precious time to concentrate on bespoke, classroom training.’

‘The working relationship with Videotile remains strong, open and communicative, with great ideas being shared across both businesses.’

‘All of this feeds seamlessly in to the formal qualification pathway. Allowing people to progress though apprenticeships at Level 2 and 3, as well as diplomas in health and social care –  the journey really does become endless.’

‘Our relationship with Videotile continues to be one of creativity, openness and innovation. VideoTile online training gives learners and clients greater options and possibilities with regard to compliance and CPD. It’s a win-win for all concerned and means training really is seen as a huge positive in all organisations.’
