Five stage learning process


i-Practice is a unique tool that simulates real world vocational activities in a virtual environment, bridging the gap between traditional textbook and workshop learning, enabling the development of practical skills.  It consists of two elements:

i-Practice (Training):  This guides you through a virtual activity with full instruction allowing you to acquire the necessary skills though the repetition of tasks.

i-Practice (Assessment):  This allows you to test your comprehension of the content.  You undertake the same activity as before but without instruction.  This enables you to apply what you have learnt, test your ability and set a benchmark to improve upon – ultimately working towards being job ready.


i-Ask provides core knowledge delivered through visuals, text and audio


iCheck reinforces your comprehension with informal testing and clear results – helping you identify strong and weak areas of understanding

i-Test This is formal testing which summarises your results
