D - Excellence in the design of learning content - public & non-profit sector   

Breast Cancer UK and First Media

First Media partnered with Breast Cancer UK to develop the Prevention Hub to help educate men and women on the topic of breast cancer. Innovative eLearning modules were created on First Media’s own bespoke framework, and incorporated a mixture of activities in bite-sized chunks to keep learners engaged.

The Prevention Hub included an interactive quiz, customised action plans and interactive iGuides, resulting in each learner undergoing a bespoke learning journey. Helping to turn a tricky subject into a goal-based digital learning experience. The quiz results were integrated into the CRM eTapestry, allowing Breast Cancer UK to streamline their marketing processes.

BT and The Football Association

English football relies on over half a million volunteers. These people change lives – and we need more of them.

The FA’s first digital qualification, BT playmaker, addresses this need. It highlights the importance of volunteers, and it gives them the skills required to support safe, fun and inclusive sessions.

Following its release in August 2020, over 60k learners have enrolled on Playmaker – and 1000 more sign up every week. Completion rates are world-leading, business objectives surpassed and learner feedback outstanding.

This course has changed The FA’s qualification landscape and increased the number of volunteers in football. Plus, it’s completely free.

Cobblestone Learning and Coillte

Coillte, the Irish Forestry agency partnered with Cobblestone Learning to create an innovative health and safety eLearning solution for Forestry workers. Coillte wanted to create an immersive and interactive experience that would allow Forestry workers to complete their safety training before going onsite.

The two main courses “Working Alone” and “Working with Overhead Powerlines” on Forestry sites were designed using drone footage, time-lapse video, documentary-style interviews and demonstrations, animation explainers as well as an interactive first-person video scenario for working alone.

The learning teams coordinated with Forestry operations and spent over 9 months filming across Ireland.

Day One Technologies 

UK Coaching, in association with Sport England, wanted to deliver a free course to all of their sports coaches on how to use an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and perform CPR if they found themselves in a situation where someone has a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

They engaged Day One Technologies for the project, in order to develop elearning that was media rich, that was engaging and thought-provoking, and that would leave an impact on the learner so that they remember what to do in an SCA emergency.

Flow Learning

Only a Pavement Away (OAPA) is a charity, founded by representatives from the hospitality industry, that helps vulnerable individuals such as ex-veterans, ex-offenders and ex-homeless find employment in hospitality venues.

The charity had identified a need to inform potential employer organisations about the commitment the project involves. Similarly, there was also a requirement to inform employees about the expectations of them.

Flow Learning worked with OAPA to produce two digital learning resources: one aimed at employers and one at employees. This was a corporate social responsibility project for Flow and the organisation accepted no payment.

Launched in April 2021, the resources have been extremely well-received by OAPA stakeholders who state that have made an enormous difference to both their sign-up process, and also to the credibility of the project.

Leonard Cheshire and LAS

A true team effort between LAS, Leonard Cheshire, their partners in Bangladesh and Kenya and most importantly, the learners themselves. The programme enhances the lives and employability of 10,000 people with disabilities in Kenya and Bangladesh, by equipping them with the soft and digital skills they need to obtain and retain jobs.

This was a challenging project for many reasons - distance, Covid, cultural and language barriers, budget and adjustments for various impairments - but the result is a learner-centric, engaging programme that goes well beyond accessibility standards, to offer the opportunity to all and to genuinely change lives.

TEC Partnership

The TEC Partnership serves some of the most deprived coastal towns in the UK; it provides education to thousands of students and is the top-rated college group in the country.

Digital is at the heart of our curriculum. We believe in highlighting success, sharing resources, and supporting others to succeed.

In 2019, this small team developed a digital student induction, including six online courses with six digital badges. The initial aim was to show digital tips and tricks to overcome learning difficulties or disabilities to enhance learning.

It is now a comprehensive offering of fifty courses to improve digital, creative, study skills and more general active citizen skills. Last year 22,537 badges were awarded to our students.

TivoliVredenburg and inBrain

TivoliVredenburg, a cultural centre in Utrecht, employs hundreds of new staff each year in various roles. Previously onboarding was done by manager with varying levels in the quality and consistency of information provided.

To overcome this, inBrain worked closely with the venue to develop a sophisticated online learning platform for rapid onboarding which has delivered exceptional results. With high levels of interactivity and personalised pathways, complex information is divided into bite-sized ‘Brainsnacks’.

The programme fits well with the smartphone lifestyle of its targets and brings new staff on board much more rapidly with time and cost savings from the organisation.

Ufi VocTech Trust

Ambios uses a ‘learning together’ (co-adventure), positive learning environment and solution focused delivery which builds on learners’ existing skills. Our learning environment aims to ‘accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative’ by using a growth mindset approach where the essence of acquiring any new knowledge, understanding or skill is about the journey.  We have created a platform to train the next generation of wildlife professionals to manage, mitigate and reverse existing and pending negative impacts of the climate crisis.  Field-craft and technology can combine to prepare participants for employment in this growing sector.
