Information Transfer wins Gold E-Learning Award for work with Cambian Group


Information Transfer and Cambian Group have won the 2011 E-Learning Award in the category "Best e-learning project securing widespread adoption". Information Transfer scooped the gold in this competitive category for a record fourth time.

The results were announced at a packed gala dinner at the London Marriot, Grosvenor Square, last week.

Cambian Group is a leading UK provider of specialist services in mental health rehabilitation and learning disabilities. The solution for Cambian is Achieve, a corporate  blended learning programme with e-learning at its heart. It combines bespoke content, learning management technology and offline learning activities. It delivers consistent training messages,  which incorporate Cambian’s vision and values. The intense focus on stakeholder engagement, learner needs, workflow and communication has resulted in enthusiastic adoption by staff.

“At the heart of everything we do in Cambian is enabling people to reach their personal best,”  said Saleem Asaria, CEO of Cambian Group. “Achieve is making that happen for our staff  and ultimately for the people in our care. We have highly committed, professional staff and  their enthusiastic response to blended learning is making a real difference across our business.”

“We don’t assume that if we build it, people will automatically embrace it,” said Matthew Borg, co-managing partner of Information Transfer. “We work on things like change communications,  branding, and internal marketing so that the investment in e-learning is successful and people use it, and in using it they improve quality, efficiency and customer care.”

This blend of services has helped Cambian Group launch the new training initiative to some very impressive numbers since it was launched in May, despite the obvious challenges of implementing e-learning in a care setting. Cambian Group provides specialist care for more than 1,100 individuals, in 60 facilities, and employs more than 3,500 staff. Since May 2011, staff members have completed
nearly 18,000 modules.
