Award winners

After a training requirement was identified to tackle issues of security and counter terrorism, Walkgrove was commissioned by the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) in conjunction with Transport for London, to develop an e-learning module aimed at HGV drivers. The resulting course went on to win the nationally recognised Counter Terrorism Education Project Award at the Counter Terror Awards, March 2019.

Designing e-learning for millennials

A ‘millennial’ is someone who was born after 1984 and, supposedly, has a number of annoying characteristics: we’re entitled, we need instant gratification due to social media, we’re impatient because we never had to work for anything, we’re poor communicators (again down to social media and mobile phones) and, most annoying of all, we’re always asking why.

Microlearning

With an ever increasing amount of information being consumed in a fast pace, hectic world, it’s hard to find the time to learn new skills to help us improve our workplace performance. In fact, 1the average employee only devotes 1% of their time to personal development - that means only 24 minutes a week or 4.8 minutes per day.

That one percent of time is valuable and needs to be spent wisely – on training that can provide accessible, interactive and effective content in a short amount of time.

Why use microlearning?

At Walkgrove, we’re often asked, ‘What is microlearning and why should we use it?’ The truth is, microlearning offers a plethora of benefits and can be integrated seamlessly into a training plan. Walkgrove’s ‘Take 5’ microlearning modules are short and high impact. ‘Take 5’ microlearning modules are tailored to offer learners rapid knowledge gain; particularly helpful for busy learners who are short on training time in their working day or who have an urgent training need. Short, sharp and to-the-point, each topic focuses the learner’s attention on the learning objective.
