iQ Student Accommodation was established in 2016 and is now one of the largest providers of student accommodation in the UK. They provide the best home-from-home environment from which students can make the most of the opportunities open to them. With over 57 properties in their portfolio and over 24,500 beds, their employees are dispersed across the country, often working and training remotely.
Following a merger, the new iQ Student Accommodation brand found themselves with a large volume of nationally dispersed employees, all with very specific training needs. They were struggling to deliver training to staff in a timely manner, with many of them shackled to the classroom to receive the training they require, taking critical time away from their jobs. The team at iQ Student Accommodation historically offered classroom-based Health and Safety training across three sites; however, due to the impact this was having on employee time away from the job, the team decided it was time to refresh their outdated training and look at delivering more digital solutions to support the ongoing learning requirements of their employees.
After choosing Litmos training courses due to their ease of use and flexible range of training resources, the team was able to get rid of a lot of their outdated training. They used the animations and eLearning course content to create and shape new learning plans to supplement what they already had. The L&D team have also taken some of the videos and animations from the Litmos course library and put them into an eLearning wrapper, allowing them to further personalize and tailor the learning content to their brand and staff.
