Passionate, skilled and nimble

Our philosophy

We believe that it is possible to double the impact and cost effectiveness of a corporate learning budget. Doing so requires a more scientific, analytical and disciplined approach to managing and optimising learning. We bring the tools, data and skills to the table to do this along with the passion, intuition and feeling that makes L&D such a positive force for good.

Our research shows that a quarter of all spend on learning is typically wasted. It is a shocking statistic, particularly given there is no shortage of quality training providers and evermore exciting and innovative new ways of delivering learning. At the same time, we have seen learning programmes that completely transform an organisation for the better. It's eliminating the wastage, driving up the effectiveness of the rest, and introducing those really transformational programmes that provides ambitious L&D leaders and teams the opportunity to make a serious difference.

Passionate, skilled and nimble

Long history, fresh approach

KnowledgePool was first founded in the 1960's as the internal training division of ICL. An independent company since 2000, we moved out of learning delivery ten years ago and used our first-hand experience to focus purely on learning management with a vision of becoming the world's leading specialist in managing and optimising learning activity and learning operations, and the primary source for learning analytics and performance data.

Complete approach to learning, with global capabilities

KnowledgePool has 130 employees, is headquartered in Reading UK, and has over 40 managed learning service clients in the UK and globally. We provide managed learning in 16 countries, in 11 languages, managing 360,000 learning events per year across all of our clients. We manage every type of training, across every subject matter area and every methodology and our extensive network of vetted, rated and contracted suppliers is a unique asset that has taken years to build up.

Personal touch and partnership

We strive to delight our clients. We give the personal touch and respond thoughtfully and empathetically to every different client need. Our relationship managers are learning professionals who get to know your business and culture inside-out and very much become part of your team. We are passionate, natural and open, and this has been key to our success. We succeed by making you successful and forging long term partnerships.
