A raft of online learning courses from Virtual College is now available to customers of The E-Learning Centre website.


Virtual College is one of the UK’s most successful e-learning producers. Over the last 17 years, it has delivered successful e-learning to over 1m online learners.


E-Learning Centre users now have access to Virtual College courses in six key areas:

  • Business improvement
  • Managing People
  • Health and Safety at Work
  • Health and Social Care
  • Food hygiene
  • ‘Trades – essentials’


The Business Improvement section includes courses on 5S, a Japanese management productivity tool aimed at process improvements and ‘lean working’; an introduction to using social media to improve business results; as well as implementing equality and diversity policies in the workplace. How to manage equality and diversity – along with a wide range of other issues, including learning and development – is dealt with in the ‘Managing People’ section.


Courses in the other sections relate to job- and industry–specific activities – notably for people in the health and social care; food preparation, and manufacturing/ engineering sectors.


David Patterson, a director of Learning Light, which owns the E-Learning Centre and provides advice and help to organisations using e-learning and learning technologies to improve their business performance, commented: “As you would expect from a high quality producer with a long and successful track record in terms of e-learning courses, all the content is highly engaging and compelling. I, for one, can well understand why 1m learners find this learning content helpful.”
