OUR CURRENT COURSE SCHEDULE

Click to view our current course schedule.  The schedule shows courses which are currently available to book.  If there is a course you are interested in but it is not shown please let us know.

At the Virtual Learning Academy we have qualified learning and development specialists. They also have a minimum of a degree level qualification in the topic they are designing a course for. This enables us to provide a professional service to our customers.

We can write courses from scratch and provide experienced professionals to deliver them. They can be provided in-house, online or a mixture of both. We now have considerable experience in bespoking courses specific to the needs of a particular organisation or industry. Below are just some examples of the many courses we can deliver.

Public Courses

Our public courses are delivered in our training centre in Invergordon.  We run a regular schedule of events.  If you would like to see a course run that is not listed please let us know.

In-House Delivery

All of our courses can be run in-house within your organisation.  We can bespoke the course to your needs or even deliver one specific to the needs of your business. Call us for a quote.

VLA on Tour

If you would like to see courses delivered where you live and think there would be a demand please let us know.  Often we can run with just 6 people.  We can travel across the Highlands and Islands.

It’s not possible to turn a gentle soul into Anne Robinson – thank goodness! Instead we look at how to be less accommodating and set clearer boundaries for others.

The idea is to feel better about saying ‘no’ without having to change who you are.

Donny Macfarlane
Sureclean Ltd

As part of our commitment to the continual development of our employees, we worked closely with Virtual Learning Academy to develop and deliver a bespoke Commercial Awareness training programme. Virtual Learning Academy ensured that the course was developed around our company specific requirements and their assistance in delivering the training ensured an informative and interactive experience for all those who attended.

John Watson
Global Operations Director

As a follow on from our 2014 ‘Raising the bar’ initiative, we required a very specific supervisory leadership course tailored to our company requirements. Due to their expert knowledge and understanding, the Virtual learning academy were able to quickly interpret our requirements and produce a course within the agreed time frame, that in itself was ‘Raising the bar’.

Cath Findlay

We employed the Virtual Learning Academy to present a workshop on ‘Time Management’ for our members. The workshop was professionally presented with relevant hand outs and an email of the course information as well. The tutor took everyone’s learning styles into account to make it a very interactive and enjoyable experience for all.
