Virtual informal learning, otherwise referred to as distance training, has become the norm over the past few years. Providing evidence of a training intervention according to the Skills Development requirements, includes an attendance register or certificate of attendance (not limited to). However, virtual learning or distance training sometimes poses a challenge in terms of producing an attendance register.
Some members have arranged for an attendance register to be shared via email or on a document sharing platform at the end of the training initiative which records the attendees for each session allowing the learners to sign once for all sessions.
There is no official clarity on how an Entity should record attendance for a virtual learning or distance training intervention, but it would be important to provide evidence in some form that indicates that the training initiative has taken place.
Skills Development Services are available to Members in assisting with collating evidence for virtual learning or distance training.
