QA has pledged support to sharing good practice through Towards Maturity’s renowned Ambassador Programme.

QA and Towards Maturity share common values including encouraging learning innovation that directly impacts results in the workplace, building on collective good practice and celebrating learning technology success.

Towards Maturity's annual study is the largest international online learning technology benchmark study, highlighting effective learning practices from top performing companies around the globe. It provides its participants with personalised benchmark reports to help them improve the impact of learning technologies in their organisations. Both the study and personalised benchmark reports are free thanks to the Towards Maturity's Ambassador Programme.

Giles Smith, Head of Strategic Client Solutions said, "At QA, our whole focus is on providing learning experiences to benefit individuals, teams and organisations. We are proud to support the outstanding work that Towards Maturity does at driving the whole learning industry forward through their Ambassador Programme."

The main benchmark report from the study will be launched on the 22nd of November in a joint webinar with the UK's Learning and Skills Group. On the same day it will also be available to download for free from Towards Maturity's online shop .

The report will focus on how organisations' learning strategies are responding to uncertain economic times, including how this climate is affecting budgets, technology changes and the building of talent. It will also reveal the impact learning technologies are having in organisations of different sizes and sectors. Furthermore it will uncover the hype versus the reality of learning technology trends, whilst detailing drivers, barriers and benefits.

Laura Overton, Managing Director of Towards Maturity, said, "I welcome QA; their award winning quality and innovation is a valuable addition to the Towards Maturity Ambassador Programme. They share the same vision and values as our other 20 ambassadors."

The Towards Maturity's Ambassador Programme includes the following founding ambassadors: Brightwave, Epic, GlobalEnglish, LINE Communications, The Corporate eLearning Consortium, successfactors, Redtray and The Charity Learning Consortium, plus CERTPOINT Systems, Speexx, Fusion-Universal, Acteon, learndirect, Toolwire, Kallidus, QA, Ontuitive, MindLeaders, Upside Learning, IMC and Redware.
