Suddenly Furloughed? You can’t work, but you can train!

With the global pandemic forcing us into a prolonged isolation, we are starting to adapt to our new ways of working. For a lot of us there is little work to do as some organisations have paused or slowed down business, whilst others have furloughed staff. Even though this is a very difficult period, it may be an opportunity to learn new skills and invest in our professional development.

If you are furloughed by your employer, you are not allowed to carry out any work. However, under furlough rules, you can undertake training. Government guidelines explicitly recommend that furloughed employees should be encouraged to undertake training during this period. If you find yourself in this position, then we can help.

At Actineo, we are re-designing our courses so we can deliver them virtually. Our aim is to offer all of our in-person training courses and workshops in a live virtual training format.

Maintaining our high standards in delivering engaging training classes is a priority for us. So, we have designed our Live Virtual Training with this in mind. We have utilised various collaboration tools and tweaked our delivery format to optimise for a virtual environment. We have broken down the training into shorter sessions and have created a combination of Live On-Air and Off-Air activities for students to participate in.

You can read more about the thinking and science behind our approach to designing live virtual training courses by reading our blog “When Everything Is Suddenly Virtual” by Jean-Paul Bayley.

The first two courses we are launching are:

The format for our Live Virtual classes is :

  • Mon-Tue / 2-5 pm (live virtual training)
  • Wed is a rest day
  • Thu-Fri / 2-5 pm (live virtual training)
