Linda Hoskins, BEd (University of Leeds), Microsoft Office Specialist (Master), TAP.cert
Linda is a versatile and committed IT professional with over 25 years experience of training and supporting adult learners. She has developed many successful training programs for a range of organisations, including the Open University, Bedford College, Chamber of Commerce and Knight Frank. Linda has been praised for her open approachable style both in the classroom and when coaching colleagues. She has trained mostly desktop PC products including Microsoft Office and Adobe Captivate, but has also covered various business skills, adult literacy, and personal development subjects.
Today… Although firmly believing there still is a place for some classroom-based training, Linda is now committed to a more blended approach using a mix of methods which include online learning, screencasts (instructional videos) with voiceover, discussion forums, live webinars, interactive video and more. Linda and Neil are able to design and develop ‘rapid’ e-learning covering a wide range of topics. Linda’s background in education and Neil’s technical background provide a perfect blend of skills and experience to enable the creation of affordable, timely, professional, interactive ‘fun’ e-learning for our clients!
Neil Hoskins BTech, TAP.cert
Neil started a career in semiconductor manufacture after gaining an honours degree in Solid State Physics in 1982. From here he branched out into more general process- and quality-control functions, qualifying as an MCQI quality professional in 1994. He has been involved in a wide variety of different industries, including electronic assembly, avionics, food packaging, and high-energy lasers. Neil has lost count of the number of Quality Manuals, Work Instructions, and Safe-Systems-of-Work that he has written over the years. He firmly believes that most instructional material available within UK firms is dry and dull to the point of being unusable, and that not nearly enough is made of the networking and multimedia capabilities of modern desktop computers and mobile devices.
