Virtual College continues to buck the economic trend

As part of its expansion, Virtual College is delighted to announce the appointment of seven new members of staff to meet the ever increasing demand for its e-learning products at this time of significant business growth for the organisation.

These appointments bring the total number of Virtual College staff to over 80, a doubling of staff in the last 4 years.

"It took us 14 years to achieve our 250,000th e-learner landmark in August, 2009. We then passed the 500,000th milestone a matter of 18 months later and we should achieve 750,000th learner milestone within the next month, which clearly illustrates the rapid progress we have made."

The seven new starters cover a range of roles from Account Management and Administrative Support within the Safeguarding, Health & Social Care and Housing sectors as well as senior technical development.

Operations Director, Lesley Ord said: "Despite the continuing economic climate, we continue to thrive, as individuals, businesses and organisations across both the public and private sectors seek to access innovative, flexible and cost-effective training solutions. We are delighted to be able to enhance our workforce with these new appointments and thereby further strengthen the company's position within the marketplace."
