Event Description

From isolated courses to integrated learning

Kirstie Donnelly, Director of Product Development at City & Guilds, and Stephen Walsh, Director of Kineo  


Training at work has changed significantly recently. Learners and employers are under increasing time pressure. They want access to learning when they are need it, and expect an engaging and relevant learning experience. Anyone supporting learning and development knows this – whether it’s an internal training department, a training provider or a community college. Too often L&D departments have to work in isolation, but increasingly organisations are collaborating to provide a better, faster service that fits straitened budgets better.

Join Kirstie Donnelly and Stephen Walsh on this webinar as they explore a major new initiative providing a different new approach to vocational education. Working together, awarding body City & Guilds and Kineo have made it possible for employers, learners and deliverers to reach relevant learning and learning support that goes well beyond the traditional classroom course. Blending guidance, learning journeys and community tools as well as assessment and tutor and coaching support, the ‘City & Guilds Way’ allows L&D departments to reach a wide range of learning resources from a range of providers.
