Walsall College support learners in work

by | Apr 7, 2008 | Interviews

In the 13 years we have been providing benchmarks for learning and development teams, one thing has remained the same – the disparity between the aspirations of the L&D team and the impact learning is having on the organisation.

In some areas that gap is closing and in others, it stays stubbornly wide. So how can learning leaders start to close that aspiration gap?

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.

By popular demand, the 2019 Learning Health Check season has now been extended until Monday 16th September. There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.

The learners spend more time at work and still have fun and enjoy themselves. The quality of the training is as good, if not better with more opportunity for practical skills training.

The secret is to deploy technology smoothly to give access to learners to all the college assets and resources with full support both from their employer and college staff. Employers that make this work are those who have a commitment to learning and have the experience to support them.

Colleges that make this work are those who have good relationships between IT departments and faculties and who have a commitment to technology with a willingness to open up their internal systems to local employers.  The end result seems to be more relevant learning, better quality, more fun for students, faster learning.

Listen to Vanessa Horrocks of VIP Hair Ltd and Sue Reynolds of Walsall College to find out how this is done and what a local employer thinks about the service.
