IPA win bronze at E-Learning Awards
LegRegs was awarded bronze in the category of ‘Best use of e-learning to ensure compliance with external regulations or internal policies’ because of the quality, method and delivery of the learning. The qualification was also recognised for educating a diverse and time-poor audience through its convenient online access and being relevant to participants of differing job levels. The IPA worked with Lewis Silkin on the content of the qualification and e-learning providers WillowDNA to create LegRegs.
The E-Learning Awards are the UK’s leading e-learning industry awards with the compliance category being one of the most competitive. At the 2012 E-Learning Awards, the IPA were awarded Gold for the innovative and pioneering approach to online learning for the IPA’s Foundation Certificate.
The IPA LegRegs Certificate ensures that agency practitioners, especially those interfacing directly with clients in account management, are fully conversant with the legal and self-regulatory measures that determine our business. The online learning for LegRegs is free and is mandatory for all account directors as part of the annual CPD Programme. The programme comprises three modules: Basic Intellectual Property, Regulation in the UK and specific Areas of Interest, covering subjects such as the use of celebrities, data protection and digital content.
Says Patrick Mills, Director of Professional Development, IPA: “This is our second award for IPA qualifications in consecutive years, we’re absolutely thrilled and it is a testament to the quality of educational content from Lewis Silkin and the design and build of the learning by Willow.”
Says Kate Bromage, Qualifications Manager, IPA: “It is brilliant to have got this recognition again especially in such a competitive category. The professional development team works very closely with Willow to deliver the best online learning for our members, and it’s hugely reassuring and flattering to have been recognised for this two years running.”
