The Charity Learning Consortium has partnered with Learning Heroes (formerly Accredited Skills), to offer its members access to an inspirational new range of learning resources.

Learning Heroes’ unique approach has created an engaging library of online resources, using a multi media mix which includes videos, offline workbooks, infographics and eye catching artwork. These include marketing help for learning professionals, along with images to support the in-house creation of course materials.

Members of the Charity Learning Consortium – a group of more than 120 charities, housing associations and not for profits collaborating to make learning technologies both affordable and effective – will now be able to subscribe to the Learning Heroes collection. It’s a valuable addition to the online resources members can already select via the Consortium, to offer to their 500,000+ staff and volunteers.

To date the Learning Heroes library includes more than 500 resources, with new courses added every week, based on customer requests. Topics include personal development, health and safety, sales, customer services, HR, finance, project management and IT skills.

Martin Baker, founder and CEO of the Charity Learning Consortium, and a well known advocate of collaboration, said: “I’ve worked in learning technologies for more than 20 years and it’s just so refreshing to find a company that has dared to be different. Learning Heroes have started from scratch and torn up the old eLearning ‘rule book’, but with a really clear vision: that eLearning has to be engaging in order to have any effect. I’m looking forward to a really fruitful partnership, which I hope will have far reaching benefits for the half a million third sector staff and volunteers that our members support.”

Adam Kara, Managing Director of Learning Heroes said: “We admire charities for the hard work they do and since our inception we have had a desire to work with them. We’ve always believed that our online learning could help charities but as a start-up we have struggled to reach the sector on our own. That’s why we’re delighted to be working with the Charity Learning Consortium to be able to make our resources available to a much bigger network and ultimately help charities deliver the vital services they provide.”

About the Charity Learning Consortium
We enable cost effective, quality eLearning to be offered to more than 500,000 staff and volunteers across the third sector in the UK – engaging staff that more traditional learning & development may not reach.  More than 120 charities, housing associations and not for profits already benefit from collaborating with our unique organisation. As a result, independent research has found that Consortium members save twice as much money on L&D compared to non-members in the sector; are twice as likely to report positive changes in staff behaviour; and almost three times more likely to report that using learning technologies has improved their organisation’s productivity.
