New online induction course for Center Parcs

The University of Derby's e-learning unit, Innovation 4 Learning (I4L), is developing an online induction course for Center Parcs.

The e-learning course is designed to allow Center Parcs, which takes on 1,500 new staff every year, to give an introduction to the firm, present an on-screen walk-through of each of its UK sites and explain about the company's core values, what is expected of employees and the benefits of working for Center Parcs.

Center Parcs has four villages in the UK: in Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire; Whinfell Forest in Cumbria; Longleat Forest in Wiltshire; and Elveden Forest in Suffolk.

Jo O'Neill, UK training manager at Center Parcs, said: "Our aim is to ensure all new employees joining the company settle in as quickly as possible with the motivation and expertise to deliver excellent guest service immediately.

"The interactive package will enable us to be much more dynamic and focused in our initial welcome workshop and will also reduce time spent in the classroom from three days to one-and-a-half.

"Not only is it a simple system that we can operate internally quite easily, it was also a very cost-effective option that suited our needs."

I4L says the course will be delivered through its Intelligent Shell System (ISS) software and is designed so that new recruits can access it either by watching it on a DVD or by logging onto the internet via their PCs anywhere in the country.
