The new online portfolio of learning and development opportunities is designed to enable UKGBC members and others across the industry to continue learning, connecting and collaborating. UKGBC understands the importance of maximising our virtual learning capabilities to ensure we maintain momentum to progress our mission to radically improve the sustainability of the built environment.

Launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the portfolio aims to keep UKGBC members connected in a time of unprecedented social isolation. As professionals across the industry become adept at remote working, UKGBC wants to ensure its learning provision caters to the current climate and allows people to continue their personal and professional development despite the fresh challenges we face.

The Virtual Learning Portfolio contains a combination of resource packs, course mails, webinars and programmes to support UKGBC members and the wider industry to keep learning. The development of the portfolio included the adaptation of our existing L&D offer to make it 100% virtual while also launching several new online offerings. Over the next 4 months members can access online learning, while connecting with others to learn and share good practice.

Elfrida Hamilton-Russell, Head of Learning and Leadership at UKGBC said:

“We know that our industry, like many others, is facing an unprecedented challenge and is adapting quickly to new ways of working.”

“We’ve listened to feedback from our members and, with this new portfolio, we are responding to their calls for accessible opportunities to grow and develop their staff. Many organisations recognise that now is a key moment to invest time in upskilling staff in sustainability, and support colleagues to keep making valuable connections with others across the industry.”
