New blended solution at BAE Systems

BAE Systems Customer Solutions & Support has selected Epic Group plc to design, develop and deliver a blended learning programme to 500+ finance staff on the Financial Management of Contracts.

The blended solution will provide a comprehensive suite of financial training including course modules, tutorials and tests all delivered on-line. A two-day masterclass follows this initial learning, supported by senior management, and giving delegates the opportunity to apply their technical skills within a project-specific context.

Nigel Billingham, Financial Director, BAE Systems CS&S commented, "We have been impressed so far with Epic's vision and creative approach to our requirement The innovative response offered by Epic fits our business model and audience well. We are hopeful the programme will deliver the desired results and therefore provide a model for future requirements."

Donald Clark, CEO of Epic Group plc said, "We have been refining our approach to blended learning for some time. We are naturally delighted to have won this work for BAE SYSTEMS as it vindicates our belief in applying an 'optimal blend' rather than the traditional two-dimensional approach. Our development team is extremely excited about this opportunity to work with the team at BAE SYSTEMS, who enthusiastically share our vision."

The target audience for the first 12 months of the programme will be Finance Management and Project Accountants. It is anticipated that the programme and derivative programmes will be expanded if successful.
