The role of the coordinator in the supporting network

A key player close to the crew and team members that are learning
Welcome to the world of modern learning in international environments. Spot On Learning and your company have formed a partnership to help teams and crews improve language and communication skills. This helps to stay safe, work efficiently and enjoy work more together. A coordinator close to the teams and crews has an important role to form a supporting network and help colleagues reach their learning goals. In this article we explain the role of the (training or learning) coordinator.

Learning to communicate in English and other important skills for international workers

Spot On Learning offers learning programs for international workers in teams and crews. We help them improve their English so that they can understand each other with more ease. We also have other programs to help international team and crew members work better together and acquire skills everybody needs in international, fast changing environments.

Motivation (part 1: "you have to")

Spot On Learning helps international workers learn. We do this because a principal, somewhere in the world, has certain requirements and wants people working for them to meet those. It is important that the participants in our learning programs understand WHY they are following a program to learn and improve. We know from practice that the coordinator plays a role in motivating the workers and making sure that it is clear to them what the learning program is about and why it is important.

Motivation (part 2: "good for you and it might even be...")

Our online courses are developed to be practical and to help people learn at a time and place that suits them. Because they are personalised (we will explain more about that later) we don't waste people's time. The programs help improve and acquire skills and add to their value as a specialised, skilled worker in an international environment. From many participants in the past we have heard that they actually enjoyed the learning program in many cases. All this together helps motivate people. You can help us make sure that participants understand this before they start.

The role of testing to personalise the program

All programs are personalised. To make that possible every program begins with an entry test or assessment. Then we know where the participant stands at the beginning. On the other hand there are requirements, in most cases these are chosen by the principal (client). They can be based on laws or regulations or they follow from the company policy. The program is what helps the participant go from the entry level to the required level as fast as is possible.

Who should enroll in the program(s)

You, as the coordinator, are the one informing us who should go through the program. You are also the one who has access to information about who should start the program in which period. Spot On Learning uses the information you provide to invite the participants when they are ready to learn.

Monitoring progress together

The participants you have chosen to start a program will from then on be in a 'class' with colleagues. From that moment on Spot On Learning's support desk monitors the learning activities of each participant in that class. The information about their 'status' is shared with you online. You will get access to a special monitoring screen with all relevant status info about the participants in 'your' class.

For the time the participants are in the class there are a limited number of status options. For each status it should be clear to all involved what action is to be taken.
