As specialists in printing for the Education & Training Sector here in Australia, we have seen the very nature of face to face training change almost overnight. We have been quick to pivot and offer genuine solutions to our clients in the education industry to help support them in finding creative ways to continue to train during this pandemic.
While there are many VET providers that have simply cancelled classes, we are seeing more than ever, RTOs adapting and changing their mode of delivery to virtual classrooms or online learning.
Does that mean print is not needed? Absolutely not.
We are proof this is certainly not the case. RTOs continue to support their students with printed materials and our services of printing training materials and dispatching direct to students at home is certainly gaining momentum as more and more of our clients jump on board with this option.
For both students and trainers who are comfortable with face to face learning, this rush to online education may be quite overwhelming. The pleasant surprise from all this is that the traditional classroom setting is still very much alive – it has just adjusted to a different medium; for right now!
So, as we all adapt to the sudden change in the learning environment, we wanted to take a closer look at how you can further support your students during this pandemic.
