18 Aug Vote for a Modern Governor in the Learning Pool 2011 Awards
Every year, Learning Pool dishes out awards to the people and organisations who’ve made the most of their Learning Pool e-learning subscription.
There are several categories, and this year not only do we have a new category but, for the first time, a Modern Governor nominee!
On the Learning Pool blog this week our Learning Consultants have pitched about why their respective customers deserved your vote for Most Enthusiastic Newcomer, Best Learning Pool Community Contributor and Best use of Learning Pool technology in the Learning Pool Customer of the Year awards 2011.
Most Aspiring E-learning Graduate/Trainee 2011
Of all the categories this is probably the hardest from which to try and select a winner.
There is always room for local government to do more to nurture and develop new talent to gain from new ideas and ways of working. This category is all about showing off the talents of our graduates, apprentices and trainees.
Vote for Shaun Chatton, Modern Governor at London Borough of Bexley
When Modern Governor was launched in Bexley, Shaun played a pivotal part and worked tirelessly to publicise e-learning to Bexley’s 1000+ governors .
He has organised many training sessions for governors to find out more about Modern Governor and to learn how to use it in a relaxed environment as many had not use e-learning before.
Shaun liaises closely with his colleagues who use the Learning Pool subscription, and is constantly seeking ways to use their best practice in his Modern Governor DLE.
He also plays an active role in the LP community – here’s Shaun (left) spotted picking up DLE tips from Blaneau Gwent’s Simon Green.
Delivering an innovative training programme to school governors can be challenge – legislation and guidelines have seen a lot of change in the last 12 months, they are a voluntary workforce, and there are few legal requirements for training.
However Shaun has inspired the school governors of Bexley to make the most of their Modern Governor subscription, and successfully blended it with the face to face training programme available to them.
100% of Bexley governors who have used Modern Governor would recommend it to other governors. Now that’s inspiring.
