Hanover Housing Association has triumphed over the RSPCA and a host of other large not for profit organisations to win the top prize at the charity learning awards national awards ceremony the charity learning awards.
Hanover’s learning and development team were presented with the prize at an awards ceremony which was hosted at the annual CLC conference at Prospero House in London.
The age exclusive housing provider for the over 55’s was awarded the top prize in the most amazing use of resources’ category for its innovative training initiative.
Hanover’s L&D team wanted a bespoke eLearning system, instead of commissioning an expensive external solution they decided to train three members of the team to become in-house eLearning designers instead.
A training investment of £5,000 has so far saved an impressive £80,000, and that amount grows with every eLearning course they create.
Martin Baker, Chief Executive, Charity Learning Consortium said: “Hanover is an outstanding example of how collaboration and innovative resourcing can have a massive positive financial impact on an organisation.
" Being Members of the CLC has allowed the L&D team at Hanover to take advantage of cost savings on content and training as well as authoring tools.
"This has ultimately helped them create and embed a culture of eLearning into the organisation, all the while ensuring they are in control of future developments and costs.
"Well done Hanover! A very well-deserved award.”
