Flexible delivery

The impact of COVID 19 has seen a shift in training delivery at WHV moving the majority of our training online. Studying online at your own convenience allows you the flexibility to manage competing demands in your work and personal life. It provides you with the opportunity to engage in learning at a time when you can focus mindfully on the task at hand – learning. We also offer interactive online courses which provide participants with the opportunity to engage in online webinars, discussions and forums alongside traditional online courses such as Microcredentials.

We do however still offer some courses via face-to-face delivery these workshops are subject to COVID-19 restrictions and we will assess our ability to provide this mode of delivery on enquiry.

Evidenced base

Our courses are all evidence based and industry informed. This means that we engage with industry, draw on current best practice and are informed by current research in our design and development of our courses. Throughout the program development phase from conceptual thinking through to design, development and testing we connect with industry and subject matter experts. We do this to ensure that the training will achieve the outcomes sought - improved workplace practice that meets industry expectations.

We also apply this evidenced informed approach to our teaching practices, drawing on contemporary teaching practices to inform our curriculum design and our teaching approach.
