The benefits

Deliver integrated learning anytime, anywhere

Competencies matter. They are the bridge between where you are now and where you want to be. BT Learning Solutions puts control where it's needed – in the hands of those that learn, so that they can learn at an appropriate pace, and from wherever suits them best. It enables you to monitor progress closely. Not least, it makes total costs more visible and controllable.

  • Reduce costs - save up to 30 per cent of your budget by avoiding the costs of travel, subsistence and administration associated with face-to-face training.
  • Improve productivity - cut time employees spend on travelling to traditional training courses and enable learning on the job
  • Ensure compliance - be confident that you are compliant with statutory and industry requirements and have the evidence required by regulators and shareholders.
  • Accelerate employee acquisition of new knowledge, skills and competency - bring your workforce up to speed more quickly on new products, services or internal processes.
  • Enable more flexible working - train anytime, anywhere is an important part of flexible working.
  • Improve talent management - identify new potential leaders and enhance succession planning.
  • Reduce technology risk - benefit from agreed service levels and an up-to-date technology platform.
  • Support change - support and manage cultural and/or organisational change.
  • Cut CO2 emissions - reduce the need for travel and improve your corporate carbon footprint.

We asked BT Learning Solutions to help us as it has a reputation as a leader in developing learning and certification programmes.”
- Stefaan van Hooydonk, Dean, Philips Lighting University

We wanted a system that would be robust, easy for us to maintain and administer, and easy for our participants to use in order to access learning. The BT team really developed an understanding of what we were trying to achieve, and that is one of the real strengths of our partnership with them.”
- Jonathan Dale, Assistant Director of Online Learning, National College for School Leadership

Technical specifications

Learning solutions to suit your specific needs

BT Learning Solutions will help you to maximise the potential of e-learning for your organisation, from meeting statutory requirements to enterprise-wide knowledge sharing to full integration with your HR and back-office systems.

If you are starting your e-learning journey, we can define a roadmap linking learning to wider organisational goals. If you have already invested in e-learning, we can help you improve effectiveness and adoption, and measure the return on your investment.

We create a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), where your employees can access your courses and training resources via a single portal. The portal also enables automatic tracking and monitoring of training activities so your HR teams have comprehensive performance and management reports.

BT hosts your virtual learning environment (VLE) at one of its data centres. As a fully managed service, we take full responsibility for the IT and network infrastructure, including upgrades and maintenance, so that you are free to focus on content, administration and outcomes. And our ‘software as a service’ option allows you to introduce e-learning with minimal capital expenditure.

Integrating e-learning with HR and other processes will allow you to maintain consistent recordkeeping across the organisation, personalise the user experience and uncover new talent. At every stage, we can help you objectively assess the return on your e-learning investment to ensure you fully realise all its benefits.
