About Highfield e-learning

If you remember 1999 you’ll remember The Sixth Sense, Austin Powers and one-hit wonder Lou Bega with Mambo No.5. It was also the year that Highfield launched its first e-learning course, with Cadbury’s being one of our first customers.

We’re pleased to say, unlike Lou, we’ve had more than one hit!

Since those early days we’ve not looked back. Our courses are used by some of the world’s most recognisable companies including PepsiCo, Marks & Spencer, Shell, Elior, The National Skills Academy for Hospitality and the Security Industry Authority (SIA).

We’ve won two Learning Technology Awards, 2017 and 2018, for our work with M&S.

We’ve worked with NaCTSO (CT Policing’s National Counter Terrorism Policing Office) to create ACT (Action Counters Terrorism) Awareness e-learning which has been used by hundreds of thousands of learners, helping to create safer businesses and safer public spaces.

So, why are we trusted to work with some of the biggest brands? We’re told it’s because:

  • we understand effective training delivery and only produce meaningful content
  • we only work with the very best subject matter experts to write the content of our courses
  • we understand assessment and ensure our content always meets the required criteria and learning outcomes
  • our interactive exercises are designed to enhance the learning experience and retention of knowledge, not just look good
  • we work closely with our customers to exceed their expectations

Whether you’re looking for an off-the-shelf solution, ideal for employee induction and on-going training requirements, or if you’re a trainer looking to deliver a qualification through blended delivery, we can help. Our off-the-shelf courses are ideal for covering subjects such as food safety, health and safety, fire safety, licensing and health and social care.

We can also work with you to create bespoke e-learning programmes based on your exact requirements.

However, like many people in the past couple of years, he has joined the lycra brigade and is now spending most weekend mornings up in the Peak District on the bike.
