Training and Learning Resources


This page is the latest in our series of Topical Themes where we focus on a particular issue of interest to our Training or HR audience and help you to identify the location of all the relevant pages regarding the Theme across the TrainingZONE and HR Zone websites.

For most training professionals, access to training resources is a critical part of our job. Most of us are responsible for learning resource centres, training notes and handouts, training needs analysis, training evaluations, learning programmes, etc. We tend to build extensive filing systems (with varying degrees of organisation) in order to reference this material. So, here's our guide to help you make sense of all the training and learning resources across TrainingZONE.

Resource Materials

  • Library: This is the primary area of the site where you will find immediately useable resource material. There are several thousand pages of resources provided either directly, or gatewayed from other providers, including:
    - Toolkit Library - 3,000 resources from users and over 20 publishers, fully searchable and downloadable.
    - LearningMatters - 1,600 resources from Echelon and partner
    - The Gower Activities Index - over 2,500 resources
    - Self-assessment and profiling tools
    - A range of feedback and evaluation tools (due shortly)

  • Expert Guides: over 20 practical guides on a wide range of training subjects

  • e-learningZONE: an advice and information area to get you started in e-learning

  • Books, CDs and Manuals: over 8,000 publications from top publishers in the TrainingZONE/HR Zone Blackwells Bookstore.

  • If you create your own training resources, we provide an easy facility to publish your resources in a way which earns you fees from your own materials.

    Information and News

    • We publish regular news stories covering all the latest training resources as they are published. The most recent news items are here.

    • We also regularly review new products and resources using our team of practitioner reviewers.
