How Do Baltic Deliver Their Training?

At Baltic Training we do things a little differently when it comes to our training. Some training providers and colleges require their learners to attend college/training for one day per week. We believe this can disrupt the integration of the learner into their roles and keep them feeling like that are on a placement from college, not in a full-time position. Our apprenticeships are a full-time, paid positions, with training and qualifications. Very different from school.

Our apprenticeships are truly a job with training. Every learner will receive their training schedule which will be broken up into modules, each module is a one week (five working days) block and will be evenly distributed throughout the 12-month programme. Courses will run every 5 to 7 weeks depending on the programme you (the apprentice) have chosen. The training doesn’t stop with Baltic, your manager will mentor you in your role, teaching you day to day skills and adapting you to the business environment. You will be a full-time member of staff and your ongoing development should be of top priority. This will include the crucial skills for you to complete the tasks asked of you, as well as basic workplace etiquette and social skills.

How do Baltic deliver their training?

Our aim is to be the premier training provider of digital apprenticeships and this is exactly how we deliver our training.

Instead of classrooms and white boards with a projector, we have moved all of our training over to digital. Delivered via Online Live with our live, expert trainers, our virtual environment provides the “classroom” feel that our learners are used to, but from anywhere they choose to attend. This could be from their desk at work, or at home, as long as a good internet connection is available, the learner can access the training. Using a mic and a headset (if a learner does not have one, we can provide one for them) the learner can interact with the trainer and their peers, ensuring they get the most out of their training.

The time on training will consist of three types of activities:

Content – where the trainer will work through the information asking questions, and starting a conversation about the topics being covered.

Group tasks – where learners will be split off into smaller groups using breakout rooms and asked to perform certain tasks and projects.

Individual assignments – where the learners will put into practice all they have learned and all that they have discussed throughout their session.

Each week will cover a specific topic relevant to the programme.
