SkillZone launched by BIFM | 3 October 2011

The British Institute for Facilities Management (BIFM) has unveiled an interactive learning portal for FM professionals.

The so-called ‘SkillZone’ was unveiled to assist FM professionals learn more about their industry and develop essential skills for their day-to-day work. It is thought the courses will not only benefit those working in the sectors and offering facilities management software, but will also further promote FM as a whole, even potentially offering an industry-wide, nationally-recognised qualification.

It was conceived after BIFM conducted research into what its members would like to see offered in the future. With 75 per cent expressing interest in taking online courses, BIFM launched its SkillZone platform, fm-world.co.uk reports.

SkillZone courses will cover eight topics including negotiation skills, advanced negotiation, conversation with customers, making budgeting work in the real world, key performance indicators, managing professionals for results, innovation and thinking strategically.

It has adapted the popular method of “bitesize” studying, which gives students the chance to learn individual topics in small, manageable chunks. They will be accessible from anywhere, allowing users to tailor their leaning to do it at a time and place that suits them, either during or outside of regular working hours.

“The set of courses has been designed with FM professionals in mind,” fmxmagazine.co.uk reports, “and are expected to help FM professionals to develop soft business skills needed to succeed in their workplaces and advance in their careers.”
