Punch has launched a new online training portal with CPL Training.

The group said the Punch Progress Console would act as a one-stop shop for learning and development for publicans and their pub teams, with each element designed to give them the tools to run a successful, safe and profitable pub business.

Publicans will be able to access online booking and can choose from a wide variety of Punch Training Workshops, together with a library of useful toolkits, templates and materials. The platform also includes free Punch eLearning modules such as the Best in Class Pub Team Induction Module.

In addition to the free training console; Punch has partnered with CPL to offer its publicans a portfolio of eLearning modules, covering a wide range of compliance and soft skills courses and qualifications.

Helen Willis, learning and development manager at Punch, said: “We have worked really hard to ensure this console is relevant to our Publicans. We have been able to tailor the information for different types of pub businesses, giving our Publicans a service that works best for them. It is also the first time that Publicans are able to self-serve all the Punch support available to them, which makes it the most easily accessible and cost-effective training programme in the industry.”
