Brighton-based e-learning company Epic, in partnership with the University of Birmingham (UoB), have been honoured with a prestigious National Training Award in recognition of their outstanding contribution and commitment to training, learning and development in the workplace.

Joanne Jackson, Epic’s Account Director for the project, was presented with a Regional National Training Award at the West Midlands Regional Ceremony, held at Birmingham Town Hall on 21 October 2010. Epic and UoB were recognised in the Partnership and Collaboration Award category for ‘skills4uni’, a highly interactive online study skills programme, which aims to reduce the drop-out rate amongst undergraduates by giving prospective students an idea of what to expect from university life.

Run on behalf of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) by UK Skills, the National Training Awards inspires and encourages UK industry to invest in training and development as a route to achieving outstanding organisational and individual success. Winning an Award is recognition of best practice and provides a benchmark for standards of excellence in training in the UK. City & Guilds is the premier sponsor of the 2010 National Training Awards.

Alec Keith, Epic’s Marketing Director said: “skills4uni is truly unique - the first interactive study skills e-learning for the UK HE sector aimed at pre-entry learners. One of the key reasons we’ve won is that in partnership with the University of Birmingham we’ve undertaken a full evaluation of the programme at all 4 levels of the Kirkpatrick model and proven its benefits. Drop-out rates amongst first year students have halved as a result of the training and there’s clear evidence that users were better prepared for university life than non-users.”

“An exceptional feature of our partnership was the shared aspiration to develop a learning experience so good that teenagers would tell each other about it. This has not only been demonstrated by the number of UoB candidates completing the programme, but also the fact that 13 other universities are now using skills4uni as part of a collaborative project.”
