Learning and Development Centres


I wish to maximise the learning and self development potential of staff, by creating the opportunity to learn & self develop using lerning and development centres(site based). I am having difficulty promoting the idea to staff, any suggestions?

  2. Managed e-learning – the only formuala if this is a area you are
    Hi Lisa,
    Your challenge is not unique and I am sure unless you have resided in the north pole untill now you will of course be more than aware of the evolution of CBT and if you have carried out a survey of preferred methods no doubt you will have calls for one to one tuition for all?
    Our experince in consulting, facilitating and providing transitional support in relation to e-learning for example is that now matter how all singing, all dancing off the shelf CBT or how much of it is available,it will in time only be embraced by the self motivated!
    If you are interested in looking at this issue from a perspective of building from your own materials perhaps or indeed having the ability to completely transform CBT /assessment content to meet your departmental real needs were users can pursue truely relevant organisational learning paths then we are happy to advise / inspire furhter. In addition
    director empowerment in terms of rubberstamping time people can devote to any new initiative irrespective of how modular or bespoke – firstly they will need to see ROI proof! this is were we can assist.
    As you are indeed looking for the sharing of
    good practive here in terms of how please call me for [email protected]

  3. Make Learning Resource Centre Materials part of all Training off
    Lisa, from my past experiences as Manager of a large open learning centre, with the same problems as yourself, and my present role as management consultant/director of a training organisation specialising in management development I do have very clear ideas on how this can best be publicised. My experiences show that you must include centre materials as part of your main stream training programmes. For example if you are running a time management programme, the pre-course material should be by accessing materials from the learning centre. In this way people get used to using the centre, the value is clear to all as the following workshops begin at a more advanced level. We provide management development and qualifications (as an IM Centre) using small group action learning approach. We have combined this with client’s learning resources – it really is a beneficial match. Do ring me on 01772 679950 to discuss what you are trying to do. Anita
