As part of our commitment to the continual development of our employees, we worked closely with Virtual Learning Academy to develop and deliver a bespoke Commercial Awareness training programme.  Virtual Learning Academy ensured that the course was developed around our company specific requirements and their assistance in delivering the training ensured an informative and interactive experience for all those who attended.

As a follow on from our 2014 ‘Raising the bar’ initiative, we required a very specific supervisory leadership course tailored to our company requirements. Due to their expert knowledge and understanding, the Virtual learning academy were able to quickly interpret our requirements and produce a course within the agreed time frame, that in itself was ‘Raising the bar’.

I started my journey with the Virtual Learning Academy in late April of this year. I had completed my CIPFA exams in 2012 but had no idea how I would get on when I started my on line learning for the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management. From the very start, I found Michelle and Catherine very helpful and they soon put me at my ease. Whenever I wasn’t sure about anything, they would always reply promptly and they definitely helped me reach my goal of completing the modules as quickly as I could. I found the learning material very easy to follow and well structured. Overall, I was very impressed with the professionalism shown by the VLA team and it was down to them as much as me, that I was able to complete the diploma in early September.

I chose to undertake a CMI Diploma in Leadership and Management for a number of reasons…..it was relevant to my job, it gave me new skills and ways of working as well as being a great addition to my CV and will hopefully help me progress in the future.  The whole process and learning experience was ideal for me, I enjoyed the occasional class learning as well as the one to one sessions with the trainer, followed up by completing the essays on my own using evidence that I have gathered from my everyday job.

We employed the Virtual Learning Academy to present a workshop on ‘Time Management’ for our members. The workshop was professionally presented with relevant hand outs and an email of the course information as well. The tutor took everyone’s learning styles into account to make it a very interactive and enjoyable experience for all.

Feedback from participants included: “ Really interesting, fun and engaging course”. “Relevant”. “ Excellent Information to put into practice”.
