What is Firebrand Accelerated Learning and why is it so effective?
Accelerated Learning is a principle of teaching, well proven for over 50 years. It was developed by psychologists to provide a more effective way to retain and learn information.
We learn in different ways: visual, tactile and auditory, and everyone has a way of learning that suits them best. By rotating these approaches throughout the day, accelerated learning targets each person’s preferred style – and reinforces the information through the other two.
Traditional format courses require many months of classes, self-study and exams, costing companies valuable employee time and delaying the impact of new technical skills. However, accelerated Learning provides staff with an intensive, hands-on education in a very short days and weeks instead of months and years.
Our Training centres create a unique learning environment with no distractions; away from work and other commitments so that students can succeed and have the flexibility to learn 24 hours a day should they wish.
