A client in international banking needed to revamp their underwriting technical skills training process. Current training failed to consider the range of learners involved; for example, some employees possessed limited to no knowledge of financial concepts or principles. In addition, training focused too heavily on knowledge acquisition with limited opportunities for employees to practice. The goal for the redesigned process: incorporate performance-based learning and whole-task practice.
Actio developed a blended learning solution consisting of approximately 12 hours of eLearning, 4 hours of virtual instructor-led modules, and coached whole-task practice modalities. Step-by-step instruction followed by case practice offered learners the chance to concretely apply newly learned skills. Performance assessments, built on real-world scenarios, provided coaches and managers with insight into each learner’s strengths and opportunities for improvement. The training also included links and pathways to existing resources and related materials for those who lacked knowledge of foundational financial concepts or principles.
