Skills for Justice are delighted to announce a new partnership with world leadership and management e-learning specialists Skill Pill.
Skill Pill has been pioneering digital learning since 2008, and this new partnership with Skills for Justice is tailored to support managers in Justice sector organisations to upskill their workforce with the relevant behavioural soft skills and management strategies needed to grow and develop.
In May 2019, Skills for Justice’s Workforce Development Report, produced findings which identified that one in around 81% of employers said there is a need for improvement in leadership and management in their organisations and sectors. And 87% said that good leadership and management is key for organisational success.
Further to this, a recent leadership review conducted by the College of Policing highlights that individuals, both within and outside of policing, identified negative aspects of culture that impede change, prevent internal challenge, restrict innovation and, at worst, damage individual and institutional legitimacy.
The future context identified in this review demands a fundamental change in approaches to leadership skills and knowledge. This is focused on promoting highly adaptable, extraordinarily effective leaders, operating from a basis of a knowledge of what works in the prevention of crime and the protection of the public.
Skill Pill and Skills for Justice are perfectly suited partners to support the workforce across the Justice sector develop their skills and understanding of leadership techniques, amongst other development skills.
Developed with learners in mind, the suite of e-learning available via the new partnership, has:
- Over 1500 learning objects including video, quizzes, text nuggets, audio casts and supporting documents to cater to all learning styles
- Been shown to increase retention – positively impacting behaviours by 10-20%
- 500 learning modules to choose from
Skills for Justice CEO, John Rogers, believes that collaborations and partnerships such as this one between Skills for Justice and Skill Pill are crucial to supporting the Justice and wider Public Services sector embed positive leadership skills, as part of the fabric of the culture.
“The workforce across the Justice Sector deserve continual support in receiving adequate training to improve the quality of leadership within the sector. It’s fantastic to be working with partners like Skill Pill to ensure the sector is addressing the need for leaders and managers to be more effective for the benefit of the public they serve.”
Skills for Justice are leaders in the design and development of Occupational Standards and Competency Frameworks, and this new partnership with Skill Pill will support this with its immersive training platform, specialising in behavioural soft skills and an engaging approach.
“It is increasingly clear that soft skills, such as personal effectiveness, as well as management and leadership skills, are key to optimal service delivery within the sector. This exciting partnership will allow Skills for Justice and Skill Pill to present a very compelling learning offering,” has stated Skill Pill Founder, Gerry Griffin.
