The Leadership Factory is launching its new V-Learning Academy.

Our V-Learning Academy is designed to provide leadership and management development through our online portal. Our SPRINT approach to learning enables us to offer full development sessions through a combination of off-line and on-line activities.

Our V-Learning Academy is built on our concept of SPRINT learning. The SPRINT approach provides concentrated learning in short two hours online sessions, supported by offline resources available on our portal which is accessed via mobiles, laptops or i-pads. We limit the group size to nine to enable a higher level of participation and smaller breakout teams of three. Programmes can be delivered in short timescales of 2-4 weeks to minimise disruption and concentrate learning.

Our Senior Management Team have all completed the Leadership for Growth Programme which has developed them hugely, making them more self-aware, helped them understand themselves and the impact their words and actions have on their peers and their direct reports.

Our V-Learning Academy has four main features:

 Online learning portal to support each programme, with relevant videos, podcasts and articles for participants to use in their own time.


Online 2-hour virtual classroom sessions enabling group learning with full sessions and breakout rooms.

Focus on action centred learning in the virtual classroom sessions.

One to one online coaching for participants to support the application of learning.

The discussion and introduction of models and approaches is presented through short 5-10 minutes videos which enable participants to learn at a time that is most convenient to them. This approach optimises the time participants spend together in the group sessions, enabling them to focus on real life challenges and opportunities.

Our online programmes offer a full range of leadership, management and team development, but designed so learning can be delivered either fully virtually or as a blend of virtual and face to face. The choice of approach is particularly relevant when participants are:

  • Geographically spread
  • Time limited
  • Prefer a blend of self and team learning

Our V-Learning Academy offers three suites of activity: V-Lead, V-Manager and V-Coach
