Virtual College’s online learning management system, Enable, records all course allocations, completions and results, allowing learner progress tracking and measurement of training effectiveness.

Virtual College will be on stand 19 at HR in Housing 2018 which will take place at City Road Conference Centre, London on 17 April 2018.

Fiona Sheen, Virtual College Learning Technology Consultant, commented "The housing sector is currently undergoing a period of reform where levels of quality provision must be maintained despite major changes.

"This change is taking place at a time where significant budget constraints are also at play and efficiency savings are high on the agenda.

"At this time of change it is important that the most effective learning programmes are in place to support the transformation and aid cost savings. Online training means a clear, consistent message is delivered across all staff and ensures learning and development programmes provide a sense of stability during change."
