Our award-winning online learning system is called the Laser.

The Laser is a secure online system which combines all the teaching and learning resources, e-portolio and communication systems.

Learners can track their progress as they continue with their course, and can see the percentage they have achieved so far.

Tutors can mark work swiftly and give learners feedback immediately via the e-portfolio. Tutors and learners can also keep in contact using the email system.

Our courses particularly require a more personalised approach to learning, and our Tutors will make every effort to tailor the course to suit the learner. This is especially effective for any learners with additional needs.

There’s no need to take time out of your busy schedule to go to college and our Tutors will come to you for any observations you require. This means you can fit your qualification and training around you.

I especially liked the progress bar which told you how much of the course you had completed using percentage… I felt supported throughout my course, my questions and queries were responded to quickly and I was given enough time to complete all units. ”

For Employers

Each learner is given their own secure login details to the Laser, and so are you. This means you can easily track your member of staff’s progress and can create your own reports using the Stats system.

You will also have the opportunity to comment on the learner’s progress with their course and will be kept up to date by the learner’s Tutor at every stage.

With over 200 staff successfully completing qualifications ranging from level 2 to level 4 over the last three years, we have enjoyed a very productive working partnership with The Childcare Company. Our staff are well supported in their learning and clear and efficient reporting systems mean that management, both in the learner’s nursery and at head office, is kept up-to-date with progress and any difficulties individuals may be experiencing. The ongoing success of so many of our staff has resulted in even those who were previously reluctant to train showing an interest and committing to studying themselves. The flexibility afforded to learners through the LASER means that our team members can study when they want and where they want, which is of great benefit with today’s busy lives. ”
