“Marshall ACM produces all our student online induction packages. When we heard it was moving into employability courses we naturally wanted to be the first further education college to sponsor the project.”

“Employability skills are at the core of everything the college offers and a highly interactive resource with vital input from industry is a fantastic new resource to complement our existing state of the art career guidance facilities. The great thing about e-learning is we can ensure every student accesses the content and not just the ones that walk through the door of the career centre.”

‘Having evaluated other e-learning providers, the University College was impressed with both the breath of online courses available and the after-sales support that Marshall ACM provided”

“Harper Adams University College has, since 2004 worked in partnership with MarshallACM as a preferred supplier of e-learning resources. Having evaluated other e-learning providers, the University College was impressed with both the breadth of on-line courses available and the after-sales support that Marshall CM provided. Their on-line and telephone support system is exemplary, with every issue we have ever raised dealt with in a professional manner.

Their products are relevant to the employers needs and we are always confident when recommending them to our staff as we know that they will be ‘up-to-date’ and reflect any on-going changes to legislation.

Staff feedback on the style, content and ease of use has always been positive, which was reflected in a 100% ‘take-up’ by staff when, in 2011 they were required to re-visit the on-line Equal Opportunities programme to update their knowledge.”

“I wanted an online training course for environmental responsibility but couldn’t find what I was looking for. As the University already uses a number of Marshall online courses, I approached them to ask if they had any plans to develop a course on environmental responsibility. They were very responsive to the idea and we started to draw up some ideas for a course outline. A dedicated course developer was assigned to the project and I worked well with him to write the detail of the course. It was really good to bounce ideas with the developer and then see these materialise. The course needed to be very interactive and engage with the user in a fun way and I believe we have achieved that. The course will now be used as an induction course on environmental responsibility for all staff and students. Marshall ACM has been great to work with and has been thoroughly professional throughout.”

“We reviewed a number of online diversity products for our professional and blue collar staff and found Marshalls to offer a well-structured, interactive product, which was cost effective and easy to implement. Since introducing the programme at Tube Lines we have had excellent feedback from our employees on how thought provoking it was, easy to use and with engaging content. They were very responsive to all our enquiries and happy to brand the product for us without loading on additional costs. I would happily recommend Marshalls to other companies looking to introduce an online diversity training package to their employees.”

“We are very pleased with the online health and safety modules Marshall ACM has provided for us. We particularly like the fact that Marshall is able to tailor the content around our requirements, ensuring that photography of our campus is used and all relevant policies are documented within the training. We are now working in partnership with Marshall ACM to ensure that the module is kept up to date on an ongoing basis with legislation.

‘…the whole process was implemented very smoothly’

“I accepted a request from David Marshall who presented an online “Diversity in the workplace” package.

On meeting Marshall ACM I was very impressed with the package and with the style of presentation as it was not forceful.

Our organisation decided to commission Marshall ACM to build our online package and the whole process was implemented very smoothly. The after sales service is very prompt and the customer service department is very amenable.

The company is also very good at updating the material and keeping abreast with new legislation.”

‘You customised the product to our needs…ongoing support is excellent’

“Prior to the merger with Tees and North East Yorkshire NHS Trust, the former County Durham and Darlington Priority Services Trust worked with Marshall ACM to implement the online Diversity and Stress Management Programmes. Use of these programmes will be extended across the new Trust.

We are currently working with the company to implement the on-line Communication programme.

A key attraction of working with Marshall ACM is that they will customise the product to the needs of the organisation. Initial project consultation and ongoing support from the Company is excellent.

I have been very pleased with the service offered by Marshall ACM over the four years that we have worked with them.”

‘Your Safeguarding training meets the needs of FE so beautifully’

“Having previously offered Safeguarding training on a face-to-face basis, Newbury College decided that a more accessible, cost-effective approach was needed. We were delighted to find the Marshall ACM module, particularly as it meets the very specific needs of FE so beautifully. In addition, it can be tailored to suit our college needs and reflect our individual practices.

With an Ofsted inspection imminent, we were able to roll out this training across the whole organisation to include Volunteers, Governors and partners in areas which previously had difficulty in accessing this type of information.

Take-up has been fantastic, over 80% of staff completed the module within the first 3 weeks of going live, and feedback has been so positive that we have now added the Diversity programme to our portfolio.

Administration has been easy, support from ACM always timely, helpful and efficient and reporting using the system generated data is excellent.”

‘Material is accurate and easy-to-use…that we can identify delegate activity is a real bonus’

“We chose to work with Marshall ACM as we have worked with them on a previous project. The level of service and assistance we received before, during and after product launch was excellent. The material itself is accurate and easy to use. Being able to identify delegate activity is a real bonus and allows us to produce up to date, robust MI reports. For us the most important issue is to be “on-side” with our regulators and the installation of the Marshall ACM Anti-Money Laundering e-Learning module has allowed us to do that.”

‘An individualised approach that produced a professional package’

“London Borough of Lambeth met with Marshall ACM, because we wanted the flexibility of having an elearning package to supplement our diversity learning programme. But we didn’t want a generic off-the-peg elearning package. Marshall ACM seemed to offer an individualised approach that produced a professional package. Fortunately as we roll out our elearning package that Marshall have written for us, we have had that experience, and excellent ongoing support whenever we have a question.”

‘Over 1000 staff completed the training programme…feedback was excellent’

Rotherham MBC has worked with Marshall ACM to implement a new online Diversity training programme to be piloted by the Neighbourhoods Programme Area to support its first steps in developing a Neighbourhoods Equality and Diversity Training Strategy. The initial meeting with the company identified our needs. Following this, the company customised the product to our requirements.

Over 1,000 staff from Neighbourhoods and our partners 2010 Rotherham Ltd (ALMO) completed the on-line programme over a 2 month period and feedback from staff was excellent. This provided the entire workforce with a base level of understanding, which is now being complimented with one day training sessions. Marshalls met with our trainers to ensure there was continuity from the e-learning course and to ensure we didn’t duplicate any part of the learning.

This work has been recognised nationally by our ALMO Inspection report that recognised the work we had undertaken in training staff in equality and diversity.

From this initial pilot, Rotherham MBC are currently in discussions to purchase a Corporate License so that the remaining 10,000 council staff can receive the same training.

I have been extremely delighted with both the initial service and ongoing support offered by Marshall ACM and would not hesitate to recommend the Company.”

“The Public Sector Diversity e-learning course (for managers) and Diversity in the Workplace – Local Government (for all employees) courses which our Council purchased from Marshall ACM was designed in partnership with a number of other local authorities across the West of Scotland and was specifically tailored by Marshalls ACM to suit the needs of employees across these Councils.

These e-learning courses support our traditional classroom style equality training and raises awareness and understanding of the varied issues within equality and diversity in the workplace. This training also aims to make equality and diversity a central theme in all employees work areas.

Marshalls ACM have been flexible in terms of customising these package for us, have provided quick responses to any queries or issues raised and have recently supported and sponsored our Council’s “Equality Awareness Week”. When Marshall ACM commit to doing something for you, they do it. Having worked with them for over 2 years now, I would not hesitate to recommend them.”

“Since launching the Diversity in the Workplace e learning module we have been delighted with the positive feedback and comments about the course from staff. People work in a wide range of roles at the University and at first we thought it would be a problem finding a quality product that would be able to reach the majority of people. In fact, the course from Marshall ACM has really exceeded our expectations and we’ve trained several hundred staff in six months – something we could not possibly have achieved with our normal training resources. One of the main advantages of working with Marshall ACM has been the rapid responses we’ve had and the personal, friendly service from their specialist team.”

“The Marshall ACM Online Equality Impact Assessment Toolkit (e-learning tutorial and accompanying database), was commissioned by Durham University in 2008. Since then it has reduced our administrative burden around impact assessments and enabled the university to quickly report on progress on assessments by department. Marshalls have now redeveloped and released a much improved system with very helpful new features such as a action planner, automatic reminders, a question editor and online resources guide. The new system can work as an equality impact assessment toolkit but also as a policy management tool for a university. Marshall ACM have provided highly responsive support and guidance throughout our work with them and this means that the system has enabled the university to gather a great deal of sustainable momentum on impact assessments.”

“We decided at the University of Dundee that we wanted to offer diversity training for both staff and students. We felt that the most consistent and cost effective approach to deliver this training was through this e-learning. Consequently, we commissioned Marshall ACM who had excellent and proven training courses for both staff and students in this area. Another reason we decided to work with Marshalls was that they deliver a ‘Diversity in Learning and Teaching’ module in addition to a module on Diversity in the Workplace. The University now uses Marshall ACM e-learning for a variety of subjects and I recommend them as a highly professional firm who deliver an excellent product.”

“The Equality Impact Assessment toolkit provides our managers with an online facility to manage their responsibilities in this area. The system is very customisable and user friendly. With the online system I can oversee the EQIA process and report to senior management quickly on progress. There are also tutorials that come with the system which educate managers on the EQIA process. During set up and launch Marshall ACM have offered excellent customer service and I would not hesitate to recommend them. The system also allows the PCT to build bespoke questions on Human Rights which will prove highly effective in capturing improvement opportunities and recording best practice.”
