A fresh approach included launching a new learning management system – TheLearningZone – that of Learning Pool’s Stream LMS.
VWFS also adopted soft skills online learning in the company, using a range of Learning Pool’s off the shelf collections, giving the staff at VWFS access to over 20 modules to support their development and mandatory requirements.
Covering a diverse range of topics, from bespoke financial crime and bribery and corruption courses to readily available soft skills content such as developing your leadership style, the engaging e-learning content is now available to colleagues, supporting the classroom training already in place.
The collaborative approach with Learning Pool meant it was an incredibly cost-effective solution. VWFS uses the ILM recommended Business Catalogue to support its soft skills and tailored content in Learning Pool’s financial services collection, to meet its learning goals.
Using existing features in TheLearningZone, the learning and development team has tailored TheLearningZone to different departments, so each learner sees what is relevant to them, giving a truly personalised experience.
Managers can now also easily track and report on all the certification activities and CPD completed by learners, at the touch of a button. The learning and development team also has access to a visual dashboard, so that they can plan and take action when they need to.
Tracy Dunning, a learner at VWFS commented:
“TheLearningZone means learning is engaging, useful and fun! Being able to learn at my own pace and to dip in and out of the training is a big plus for me, with my busy work day.”
Compliance training is a key priority of all organisations and was one of the fundamental elements for VWFS to ensure the continuous development of their colleagues.
The functional use of the technology, with features such as certification and integration with HR systems, means that user information is automated, tailored and consistent, all as standard.
