Online learning the right road for Taxi Drivers
21/12/2010 00:00:00

A blend of online learning and class work has paid off handsomely for Taxi Drivers in the city recently.

Limerick City Adult Education Service (LCAES) is currently helping to support over 20 Limerick Taxi Drivers to sit their Industry Knowledge SPSV Exam. This exam is now compulsory for those wishing to renew their license.

The blended learning approach used is proving to be a great success. In particular, the access to online resources is proving to be a great hit for the busy taxi drivers. The online resources developed by LCAES tutors include an interactive quiz which gives learners the opportunity to practice for their online exam between classes.  This approach has been such a success in Limerick that it is now being used by Taxi Drivers throughout the country attending similar courses in other locations. All these courses are funded through the Skills for Work project.

Not alone have many of the taxi drivers now passed their exams but some of the LCAES tutors have also taken and passed the exam. Now that’s what you call going the extra mile for our learners!!
