Rachel Collins, from the Office for Philanthropic Partnerships and Alumni, talks about how LinkedIn Learning has helped develop and grow the knowledge and skills of her team.

Key highlights

  • Access to learning on a wide range of topics, at a pace and place that suits. This is especially helpful when new to the organisation.
  • Rachel's team were able to learn independently about new project management software that none of them had used before. This was particularly helpful in a hybrid working environment.
  • Complete courses as many times as you like - continually refreshing your knowledge and skills.
  • Monitor your progress and download certificates to demonstrate what you have learnt. You can, on occasion, get recognised qualifications from it too.
  • Rachel previously used YouTube to help learn something new, but she finds LinkedIn Learning much more curated and easier to find high quality content.
  • LinkedIn Learning seamlessly integrates with your LinkedIn profile, meaning you can keep a track of what you have learnt and how that might transfer into other projects you are working on.

The Foundation team, IPC case study

The Foundation Team in the International Pathway College (IPC) have utilised LinkedIn Learning to support CPD events they regularly hold throughout the academic year. These have covered a variety of topics such as emotional intelligence, team building and storyboarding.

Using Padlet to share selected LinkedIn Learning resources, the IPC were able to engage staff with the platform by marking these resources as pre-work and maintain this engagement with the CPD events by using Padlet to share the PPT and encouraging staff to record any comments or thoughts they have.

In the case study below, find out more about what motivated IPC to use LinkedIn Learning as a development tool, what they found most useful on the platform and how colleagues responded to this approach to CPD.
