Always up-to-date
If you get this e-learning course you also receive any updates we make to the content, so you’ll always have the latest version.

Learning by design
This highly interactive course blends rich graphics and audio-visual content with a variety of question-types encouraging learners to take practical steps towards gaining an apprenticeship. An optional end-of-course test assesses learners on the level of knowledge they’ve retained. Pass rates can be set as required.

Easy to implement & customise
This Apprenticeships for Students e-learning course comes with Marshall LMS (Learning Management System) which could support other e-learning across your organisation and track completed training.

Our in-house developers can quickly & effectively adapt this course to your sector and organisation, giving you the option to add your own graphics, photos & video, and amend content to include your policies, procedures and key areas.

At Marshalls we’re totally focused on creating content that’s exactly right for your learners. That’s why we’ve built our business around customising our existing courses to match the needs of specific organisations. And if something completely original’s required, we’ll make a bespoke course for you from scratch.

When we do this, our approach is guided by a few key principles.

Organisational Need
Why do you need to provide learning for your users – specifically? Is there a compliance need, a requirement to raise performance – or generate positive outcomes for external stakeholders? We prioritise making this clear as the first step in all of our projects.

Learner Centric
Who are your learners? What are their preferred learning styles? What do they know already? How confident are they with using technology? We’ll put these questions to you, and base our approach around the picture we build up.

Learning Outcomes
We use these to decide what every screen in every course we make is intended to achieve. What is it – exactly – that learners need to explain, describe, distinguish or list? Defining these up-front keeps every project on course as we move from initial proposal, through to storyboarding and then development.

Page-turning e-learning just doesn’t work. All of our courses are highly interactive, making extensive use of scenarios in particular. Rich media is used as appropriate, from audio-visual resources through to animations and bespoke graphics.

Respect for Learners
Treating learners as adults is vital to us. People don’t learn well if they feel they’re being patronised, and we aim to let users manage their own learning experience. We do this by writing our courses with an honest, direct tone, and giving learners choices in the form of additional learning resources and open navigational features.

‘What’s in it for me?’ is a question that all of our learners should be able to answer.

Used by

Marshall ACM has been great to work with and has been thoroughly professional throughout” “I wanted an online training course for environmental responsibility but couldn’t find what I was looking for. As the University already uses a number of Marshall online courses, I approached them to ask if they had any plans to develop a course on environmental responsibility. They were very responsive to the idea and we started to draw up some ideas for a course outline. A dedicated course developer was assigned to the project and I worked well with him to write the detail of the course. It was really good to bounce ideas with the developer and then see these materialise. The course needed to be very interactive and engage with the user in a fun way and I believe we have achieved that. The course will now be used as an induction course on environmental responsibility for all staff and students. Marshall ACM has been great to work with and has been thoroughly professional throughout. David Duckett Head of Environmental Sustainability University of Stirling
Whilst other companies provide similar packages, I was delighted by the level of customisation and localisation available from Marshall ACM. Indeed, we were able to incorporate images and reference to policy, values, behaviours and services specific to our college, together with a Scottish voice-over. Subsequently, rather than adopting a generic, off-the-shelf product, Marshall ACM has created a real feeling of ownership through designing a college specific branded package aimed at students. Apart from the quality and professionalism of the finished module, I was most impressed by the flexible “can do” ethos of Marshall ACM and look forward to developing our already flourishing relationship over the next few years as part of our annual subscription.
