K - Best online distance learning programme
Deloitte, Solvd Together and Audience
Deloitte and Solvd Together reframed distance learning as a TV-quality production that delivered business outcomes and audience needs. The Analyst Induction Programme is a graduate induction delivered online and supported with physical assets sent to attendees in the post. It focuses on developing professional consulting skills through practical experience, and fostering a connection with the firm, its values and purpose. The AIP utilises rich media, digital learning platforms, webconferencing tools and a consumer-grade front-end to support graduates in their transition. It left stakeholders across the UK firm with a fresh perspective on distance learning and its potential impact.
The Sales Training Group at Schlumberger, the world’s leading Oilfield Service company, has historically offered a 5 day instructor lead training class delivered all over the world where the O&G industry is represented. From 2015 till 2020 the average number of learners taken through the 5-day Sales Skill program were 400 per year.
With the cyclical history of the O&G industry as a backdrop, eroding financial margins and the need to get a core sales training offering into the hands of a workforce that is spread out across more than 120 countries, we decided to turn the 5 day In Class Sales Class, into a virtual distance learning program.

NYA’s online distance learning. programme uses blended learning, with innovative, interactive content which is fully accessible and keeps learners engaged.
