About Us
 
Sherpa Integrated Learning develops and provides integrated learning programmes.

The Sherpa name is derived from a Nepalese clan renowned for their skill and courage in guiding climbers in the Himalayan mountains. It has been chosen to emphasise the supportive and team-working ethic that underlies the organisation.

Beginnings
The vision for Sherpa emerged from a day conference of HRD professionals in March 2000 organised by Sherpa’s principals. It is to deliver the highest quality learning programmes which integrate (some say ‘blend’) e-learning with other forms of learning delivery, and which are produced and run by qualified trainers. At that time, few, if any, training providers were offering so called ‘blended’ solutions. Furthermore, there was no accredited training available for e-learning developers outside of a master’s degree.

Learning and Learning Content Management
With our technical partners, we have devised a Learning Content Management System (LCMS) incorporating a Learning Management System (LMS) based on the ’webChameleon’ software engine.

webChameleon’ enables us to:

  • upload course material quickly and easily
  • adapt course material to meet individual needs
  • build courses by selecting existing modules and learning objects
  • and brand sites for individual customers.

webChameleon also offers ‘parallel file access’. This enables you to run on-line instruction manuals with reciprocal links to and from e-learning.

The Future
We aim to provide our customers with the very best quality integrated learning material and development services, and the very best value for money. Top quality is achieved by:

  • using only properly qualified and appropriately trained HRD professionals,
  • having a thorough design methodology
  • and maintaining high quality standards through rigorous validation techniques.

Value for money is offered by keeping our costs low and through our unique Development Partnership Scheme  This scheme enables you to share the cost of development with others, reducing your costs by as much as 80 per cent!
