Employees and volunteers at National Museums Liverpool are soon to access the majority of their work-based learning online rather than in the classroom.
The group, of eight museums and art galleries, has agreed a contract with digital learning experts, Me Learning, which will see old-style face-to-face training replaced with state-of-the-art digital learning. This means that in future up to 1,000 employees and volunteers will access courses via computers on a wide range of workplace topics including health and safety, GDPR, safeguarding and a broad selection of business skills.
Me Learning CEO, Nick Richards says:
“We are delighted to be working with National Museums Liverpool to help improve the quality and availability of training for their employees and volunteers.
“We know, through our work with other charities, that when digital training is done well it offers huge benefits over more traditional training methods. Because it is cheaper, more learners are able to access training when they need it, rather than waiting for classroom slots or budgets to become available. But more than that, we use the latest technology and techniques to create more effective learning which engages a broader range of learners with different learning styles and preferences.”
Under the year-long contract with Me Learning, National Museums Liverpool will:
- Use Me Learning’s own learning management system called Blue LMS to deliver and track all training undertaken by employees and volunteers.
- Have access to an extensive library of over 60 courses, specifically for the charities and public sector.
- Use Me Learning’s Blue LMS to host learning developed in-house by teams.
