Learning Pool appointed by British Business Bank to provide learning management solution

Elearning company, Learning Pool, is pleased to announce that British Business Bank, the UK’s state-owned economic development bank, has agreed to an initial two-year partnership for online learning services.

Owned by the UK government, the Bank was founded in 2014 with a mission to help drive economic growth by making finance markets work better for smaller businesses. 

Having operated a Learning Management System for the last several years, the Bank understood their current and future functional requirements in detail when researching the market for a solution to support them. 

Learning Pool, with a flexible and scalable LMS platform and a broad range of existing content catalogues including Government, Compliance and Finance, were able to meet the Bank’s requirements. The ability to quickly and easily change the off-the-shelf content using the Adapt Builder editor and accurately manage risk and compliance reporting were also key factors in the selection process.

Rob Wray, Risk and Compliance Manager at British Business Bank commented:

Working for an economic development bank in its first few years of operation is a fascinating and demanding experience. We have obligations to our partner organizations, the UK Government and smaller businesses. This means operating compliantly is a minimum standard but moreover that empowering and enabling our growing workforce is key to delivering our goals.

Learning Pool’s CEO, Paul McElvaney also said:

Learning Pool has helped government and financial organizations deliver ongoing performance improvements through learning over the last decade. We’re delighted to be able to support the Bank, especially because of their work to help organizations like ours achieve ambitious growth through better access to finance.
