Brendan Kavanagh, CEO of Olive Group. The Irish-founded EdTech company joins me on today’s episode of the Tech Talks Daily Podcast. We talk about how they are leveraging technology and their strategic five-year partnership with the UK’s National Open College Network (NOCN) Group.
As part of the strategic partnership, they’ll be launching a new best-in-class virtual learning platform, ‘vLearn,’ which will bring virtual learning services to over 2000 training providers and colleges globally, including the UK and international markets.
vLearn launched this year with market-leading virtual support materials for apprentices across some of the most popular Apprenticeship Standards. The platform will then be rolled out to the wider NOCN Group as part of a 12-month project to deliver unrivalled digital support to customers.
The platform’s key features will include digital materials to support the delivery of qualifications, virtual classrooms, and one-to-many online exam proctoring. The NOCN Group educational charity offers a range of integrated services, including endpoint assessment, regulated UK and international qualifications, access to Higher Education, short courses, assessment services, as well as consultancy and research services.
Founded and headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, Olive Group produces low-cost, high-end online training courses to help more people access affordable education and help businesses onboard, train and upskill staff. Since its establishment in 2006, the company has trained more than two million people across the world and created digital learning content in 27 languages.
Employing 600 people across 12 countries, Olive Group produces world-class digital content using the latest technological innovations to engage learners and save businesses 85% of the costs associated with the delivery of classroom-based training courses.
