Industry professionals are prized trainers, according to new research* from Logic4training. 72.2% of respondents agreed this is how they’d prefer to learn. The new survey provides an overview of people’s thoughts on retraining after education, focusing on how and when people want to train, regardless of the sector or qualification. Delivering a snapshot of the modern learner, the survey also found that students want more than qualifications. Acquiring knowledge on how to set up a business as well as confidence in their ability were as important as the qualification for 56% of participants. While findings showed practical training to be the most effective method, respondents to the survey reported a change in the way they learn. Advances in technology - particularly the internet - contributed to 39.8% reporting they learn best through watching, crediting sites like YouTube for tutorials. Key findings:Back to Insights
