With a large body of evidence-based research that supports the benefits of face-to-face training compared to online assessment we come to you…
Here’s some of the evidence-based research points highlighted.
Increased Retention: A 2019 study published in the Journal of Workplace Learning found that face-to-face training led to significantly higher knowledge retention compared to online training. The study found that participants who received face-to-face training retained 64% of the knowledge they learned, while those who received online training retained only 24% of the knowledge.
Improved Engagement: Face-to-face training can increase engagement and participation among learners. A 2018 study published in the Journal of Education and Training Studies found that learners in face-to-face training reported higher levels of engagement and satisfaction compared to those who received online training.
Better Collaboration: In-person training can promote collaboration and teamwork among learners. A 2018 study published in the International Journal of Instruction found that face-to-face training led to more collaboration and interaction among learners compared to online training.
Enhanced Feedback: Face-to-face training provides learners with immediate feedback, which can be particularly valuable in complex learning situations. A 2019 study published in the International Journal of Industrial Ergonomics found that face-to-face training was more effective in improving safe lifting techniques compared to online training, due in part to the ability to provide immediate feedback.
Greater Flexibility: While face-to-face training is often conducted in a classroom setting, it can also be flexible and adaptable to the needs of learners. A 2019 study published in the Journal of Education and Practice found that face-to-face training provided learners with greater flexibility and the ability to adapt to different learning styles compared to online training.
Research highlights that face-to-face training is more effective than online assessment in promoting knowledge retention, engagement, collaboration, feedback, and flexibility among learners, and whilst online assessment has a place in certain types of training, if you are looking to protect your staff and workplace expert face to face training is recommended.
We deliver training aimed at those activities that involve manual handling in the workplace, covering hazards and movement and handling risks.
