KnowledgePool achieves double short-listing for the World of Learning Awards 2006


Managed learning services company KnowledgePool has been short-listed as a finalist in two of the nine categories in this year’s World of Learning Awards. The first category is ‘Learning Innovation of the Year’, which honours innovative solutions and learning methods that have achieved tangible results. KnowledgePool has been short-listed for its revolutionary approach to providing managed learning services. This has enabled clients as diverse as British Airways, the Competition Commission, the Home Office, Lloyds TSB, Merrill Lynch and Orange to streamline their training processes, increase operational efficiencies and monitor and improve the quality of their training interventions. The second is ‘Blended Solution of the Year’, which showcases programmes that have been developed to meet real business needs and which can be shown to have had a demonstrable impact. KnowledgePool has been short-listed for its ‘Technology Refresh’ project for the Home Office, a major blended learning programme – involving instructor-led seminars, bespoke e-learning and live coaching – which was developed to help 15,000 civil servants upgrade to Windows XP and Office XP from older versions of the software. Now in their sixth year, the World of Learning Awards seek to recognise and reward organisations and people who have significantly advanced workplace productivity and performance within the industry. The 2006 awards will be judged by an independent group of learning and development experts and leading practitioners. The awards will be presented at a black-tie gala dinner on 14 November 2006 at the NEC, Birmingham – the first night of the World of Learning Conference & Exhibition.
