Pilkington signs e-learning deal with SkillSoft
Pilkington, the glass and glazing products manufacturer, has awarded online learning provider SkillSoft a three-year contract to supply management, business, health & safety, IT and desktop-skills training to its 24,000-strong workforce.
To address the global nature of Pilkington's workforce, the content will be available in Spanish, Castilian, Polish, Russian, French, German, Italian and Mandarin.
The e-learning will be deployed via SkillSoft's learning management system, SkillPort, and will be accessible to employees via the Internet.
Roy Prescott, group learning and development manager for Pilkington said: "As a result of our experience with SkillSoft to date, we had no hesitation in signing the three-year deal.
"We are now in the process of rolling out technical courses to our global IT personnel and will also be offering a number of SkillSoft's health & safety courses to all employees.
"SkillSoft's Course Customisation Toolkit and Dialogue tools have also been acquired for future use. These will provide us with the facility to create and deploy our own in-house content in multiple languages via a robust virtual classroom environment."
