    PUZZLES HELP DELIVER CITB AND NEBOSH COURSES

    Innovative new tool available to support effective H&S training

    Puzzle manufacturer Ethentic specialise in the design and manufacture of health and safety knowledge checking puzzles for use as teaching aids.

    The puzzles are designed to guide learners into knowledge recall of a particular fact or subject area. The puzzles can be used individually or with groups of learners as a challenge “Who can complete the puzzle first?”

    The company is launching two new ranges of knowledge checking puzzles at the Safety and Health Expo in June 2017 . The puzzles will support delivery of both CITB Site Safety Plus and NEBOSH qualifications.

    Benefit to trainers and learners

    Ethentic stress that learners retain more knowledge if they are enjoying a lesson and that this benefits both learner and the trainer. Studies have shown that the use of a range of teaching methods will increase both learner engagement and knowledge retention.

    The puzzles are designed to offer training providers a wider range of options for knowledge checking across many different subject areas.  In addition, the puzzles help to introduce an element of fun and competition into the learning environment, essential ingredients for an effective lesson.

    Each puzzle has a number of matching words, statements or numbers based on specific learning outcomes which need to be matched together correctly in order to complete. The finished puzzle forming a pre-determined shape e.g. a hexagon or triangle.

    We consult with highly experienced teachers covering different disciplines at puzzle design stage to ensure puzzles meet specified learning outcomes.

    Use can include briefings and toolbox talks

    Ethentic manufacture puzzles for many different learning environments and have worked with organisations requiring knowledge checking of employees after the delivery of briefings or tool box talks.

    The puzzles can be used in many different ways to check on learning:

    • Knowledge – use a puzzle at the end of a lesson as a knowledge checking exercise against learning outcomes;
    • Retention – if you are delivering a subject which involves separate elements or modules, use earlier puzzles in later sessions to check knowledge retention;
    • Gaps – use the puzzles as a refresher exercise to identify strengths or weaknesses and plan your lessons accordingly; and
    •  Confidence – if you have a group of learners completing a puzzle, it is easy for the trainer to observe and identify learners displaying subject matter confidence issues. This approach can save on the embarrassment of a learner not being able to answer a direct question for example.
