LifeTrain and on-course®
LifeTrain is complementary to on-course®, the resource centre for LifeTrain’s stakeholders. At its simplest, on-course® could be described as a pan-European catalogue of courses for postgraduates and beyond in the biomedical sciences.
In the future, we envisage on-course® providing resources that will bring employers and professional bodies together to define competency profiles, identify training gaps and work with course providers to fill these. Individuals will be supported to plan their career development, maintain a competency portfolio and find training to fill skills gaps. Finally, course developers and providers will be supported through guidance on learning methods that are especially appropriate for adult learners and that support their trainees to transform their learning into their daily working lives.
