Information Transfer joins Towards Maturity Ambassador Programme to encourage effective e-learning practices

Cambridge, UKLearning NewsActeon Communication and Learning

Information Transfer has joined the Ambassador Programme of Towards Maturity, a leading European benchmark practice which promotes independent research in order to encourage effective practices in e-learning.

Towards Maturity Ambassadors are industry thought leaders who support the Towards Maturity Benchmark Study in order to ensure that independent research is freely available to all. The Benchmark Study has gathered valuable data from learning and development practitioners since 2003. Over 1,200 organisations and 3,000 learners have contributed to the development of the Towards Maturity Index that monitors good practices on an annual basis.

Owen Rose, joint Managing Partner at Information Transfer, expresses his support:

“We are dedicated to delivering outstanding learning solutions for our clients. We share the commitment of Towards Maturity to spreading best practice and embedding learning technologies at the heart of enterprise, and so we’re delighted to have the opportunity to support the Ambassador Programme.”

The internationally recognised Benchmark Study provides all participating organisations with individual feedback on key performance indicators such as efficiency and time-to-competency. It also recommends further actions to improve the effectiveness of e-learning technologies in the organisation. In 2010 seventy percent of organisations that completed the study found new ways to help improve e-learning implementations.

2011 Benchmark Study
The new 2011 Benchmark Study was launched on June 6. Those responsible for implementing learning technologies in private, public and not for profit organisations are invited to take part to receive their personalised report and free Time for Action paper.
