Benefits of in-person learning

In-person learning offers a range of benefits that can enhance the overall learning experience. These benefits are particularly notable for a course like the Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways, which includes both theoretical knowledge and practical skills.

Support and guidance

One of the key benefits of in-person learning is the immediate feedback and guidance you receive from your facilitators. This hands-on guidance can make the learning process much more effective and help you avoid developing incorrect habits or misconceptions. During in-person classes, you get the chance to ask questions, clarify doubts, and have meaningful discussions, all in real-time.


In-person classes also provide opportunities for collaborative learning. Working alongside your peers on various tasks and projects, you learn teamwork, improve your communication skills, and broaden your understanding of the subject matter through shared insights and diverse perspectives.

A physical learning environment can also enhance focus and engagement. Without the distractions that often come with learning from home or in a public space, you can better concentrate on your studies, absorb more information, and make the most of your learning hours.

Learning beyond content

In-person classes can contribute to your social and emotional growth. The interpersonal interactions you have in the classroom can help you develop social skills, build professional relationships, and grow your network – an often overlooked yet significant aspect of career progression.

Learning in-person can also boost your confidence. With each in-person interaction, whether it’s asking a question, participating in a group activity, or delivering a presentation, you’re gradually building your confidence to communicate effectively and professionally. This is particularly crucial in the context of vocational training, where communication and collaboration are key to success in the field.
