Public Sector Learning: Essex partnership working showcase

Achieving Success Together – the Essex partnership approach to Learning Pool
Alison Stott and Janet Cox, Essex Strategic HR Partnership

The partnership brings together Heads of HR from 16 authorities in Essex, the purpose being to work together to identify and address common issues through joint workforce planning, making best use of our resources and building efficiencies. 
 
The partnership has already successfully commissioned leadership development, training, an inspiring diversity programme, negotiated preferential rates on contracts, and generated income to support projects.  A high level of trust and commitment exists between partners. 
 
Learning Pool is our next step to help us deliver greater efficiencies.  The partnership has centrally purchased a DLE and authoring tool for each council, but uniquely we have developed an overarching DLE called Virtual Network Essex or vine. 

The challenge to our councils is to work smarter, combine resources, share expertise on e-learning to deliver better outcomes.  In essence, to do things once not 16 times.
