Being the cheerful sorts we are at Unicorn, we love a bit of good news!

FSTP_logo-2So we were beyond chuffed for our partners, FSTP, when they won the Debt Resolution Forum (DRF) and Debt Managers Standards Association (DEMSA) ‘Business Partnership of the Year Award 2015’ last week!

Consumer Credit is just one area we are working with leading financial services consulting and training specialists FSTP on in bringing a more targeted and streamlined approach to compliance for FCA regulated firms. It’s always fab to have it recognised you’re working with the best of the best ☺

grocott_FSTPPhilippa Grocott, Partner at FSTP, has written a great piece about how, as a partnership, ourselves and FSTP are supporting clients with blended learning and why a blended solution is right for today’s financial service firms.

Through a worked example, she provides a case study of how FSTP helped a Learning and Development Manager from Bank X who required training on the new Individual Accountability Regime in Banking identify what needed to be studied by who, the best format for delivery (face to face or eLearning) and where their budget should be spent.

In the blog Philippa writes: “The blended approach has improved beyond expectations over time, and solutions, using both the classroom and virtual delivery methods, have rightly earned their place and are a must in any annual L&D programme for all organisations.”

It’s a must-read for any FCA regulated firm currently trying to get their head around how to best meet the demands of the new Accountability Framework before the March deadline.

In December 2014 FSTP won the Thomson Reuters 2014 Best Compliance Consultancy Firm Award, voted for by FSTP clients. Meanwhile in January 2015 our learning and performance platform, SkillsServe, was ranked as the top LMS for the financial services sector, and fifth overall, in the Top 50 LMSs Report 2015. Congratulations again FSTP!
