Virtual training15th of June 2010
The Virtual Academy in Business Services is a pilot project just launched in the UK set to alter training in facilities management (FM) by bringing employers together in raising workforce skills.
Developed by Asset Skills, the government-backed Sector Skills Council for FM, the Virtual Academy will act as a link between business and training providers, offering practical assistance on training issues.
By acting as broker/facilitator, the Virtual Academy aims to put the right people onto the right courses. For example, three companies may wish to put 100 cleaners on to a nationally accredited cleaning course. Through the Virtual Academy, they can collaborate and choose the right training provider, according to region or number of learners, and economies of scale can be achieved.
