Develop Training launches innovative e-learning courses to meet diverse training needs

   05 June 2023         News

Develop Training is excited to announce the launch of its new series of digital e-learning training programmes, accessed via a cutting-edge Learning Management System (LMS) called LEDA. The LMS has been specifically designed to work in tandem with Develops highly regarded BookIT CRM system.

This online content enhances Develops existing range of courses and provides an easy to use, convenient and flexible learning experience, catering to the diverse needs of Develop’s customers.

The initial set of 64 e-learning courses focuses on team development, leadership & management, IOSH, and a range of general health & safety courses from manual handling to fire safety awareness. More categories are set to be added in the coming months through collaboration and feedback from Develops valued customers.

A long history of innovation

When it comes to innovative training courses for the utilities, engineering, and facilities management industries, Develop has a history of setting the standard. In 2021, the company launched the utilities industries first ever City & Guild’s accredited blended learning training course for workers who handle high voltage electrical systems. This was swiftly followed by a range of other blended and virtual classroom programmes. Further to this, Develop has recently added a new state of the art mobile confined space training facility to its delivery portfolio and has just completed the development of a fully to-scale artificial street scene at its York centre. Develop is also seeking to address the national shortage of teaching and learning roles within the sectors by significantly investing in trainer recruitment via a project known as Evolve – further details will be available soon.

The way we learn is changing

Matthew Gray, Head of Operations & Training commented “The industries we work with are changing. In today’s market, our customers have seen interruption to business from the effects of COVID19 as well as disruption to supply chain and increased costs. Because of this there has been a shift towards businesses needing to train their employees in a variety of ways.”

“Develop has historically provided on-site practical training – and that will continue to be our main focus. However, following the successful launch of our virtual and blended training programmes, we have worked with industry professionals to develop a range of e-learning courses, many of which are professionally accredited by external awarding organisations. This will allow our customers to choose the delivery methods best suited to their employees’ needs.”

He continued, “These e-learning courses are designed to compliment our existing training offering and will allow our customers to reinforce their employees’ knowledge by providing additional learning opportunities without them leaving the office, home or on-site location. It will also help us all to meet our environmental requirements by delivering high-quality training in a more sustainable, efficient, and environmentally friendly way”.

A unique advantage for Develop

John Kerr, Managing Director added “One of the key advantages of Develops e-learning is the ability for employers to incorporate their own bespoke content, tailoring the learning experience to their specific business requirements. This flexibility allows businesses to address their unique training needs efficiently and effectively.”

Develop has been running training programmes since 2007 but has a history of training and assessment stretching back nearly 50 years. As the UK’s leading accredited provider of Compliance, Technical, and Safety training, Develop has successfully trained thousands of people at their state-of-the-art training facilities in Derby, York, Swindon, Linlithgow, Brentwood, Birmingham, Norwich and Manchester.

The launch of Develops e-learning courses, alongside a range of other high level investment projects, marks a significant milestone for the business, as it continues to solidify its position as a leading provider of training solutions. The company remains committed to delivering high-quality training, now combining traditional classroom and practical settings with the convenience and flexibility of digital learning.
