Boring eLearning gets a bad reputation – but it doesn’t have to be that way! The L&D team at Addaction created an engaging eLearning Infection Control module which had a far-reaching effect within the organisation. Judges were impressed with the impact the tailor-made course had on staff, and it won the Best eLearning Programme in the Charity Learning Awards 2013.
“Learning and Development is an absolute cornerstone of what we are about as an organisation and what we offer to our staff. We devised our learning and development strategy, got the buy in from our trustees and senior staff and then carried out an extensive training needs analysis. Our staff told us they like online learning, but that it must be part of a blended learning solution. So that is what we have done. This means that we can introduce mandatory units around, for example, safeguarding children and report on this, provide the suite of learning options that are part of our link with CLC as well as providing the face to face delivery staff expect. We also ensure that our appraisal process has personal learning as one of its four elements. Ultimately this is all about upskilling our staff and improving as a business and L&D is a critical component of making this happen”.
