The Australian Network on Disability (AND) is a national, membership based, for purpose organisation, that aims to advance the inclusion of people with disability in all aspects of business. AND helps members and clients to welcome people with disability as employees, customers and suppliers. Member organisations have access to a network of highly skilled relationship managers and training consultants, who are experts in providing training, advice and resources to support access and inclusion for people with disability.

The Situation

AND offers a range of learning options including webinars, online learning modules (e-learns) and face to face training. As the organisation continues to grow, AND recognised the need for a more robust and flexible online learning platform that would be easy to scale, help keep costs sustainable and provide members with a blended learning solution.

The Solution

The first priority was for Peopleplan to redesign the existing online learning module, Disability Confident Recruiter, into a more interactive and engaging piece of online courseware.

This module forms part of Disability Confident Recruiter program that provides the tools and resources to build the skills to enable recruitment consultants to confidently recruit talent from diverse groups, including people with disability.

Peopleplan restructured the course into three separate e-learns and transitioned the assessments into separate quizzes that would be randomly generated and delivered via the quiz engine on the new digital platform.

Learning & Communications Platform

Peopleplan designed and deployed the AND Learning and Communications Platform to provide all members access to online learning and resources.

For AND the platform provides a user friendly and engaging environment where relationship managers can interact with members to deliver and measure the outcomes of online learning, assessment, communications and learning support materials.

Based on the WCAG 2.0* accessibility standards, both the platform and e-learns are built to an A level standard.

The Result

The Learning and Communications Platform pilot stage has been deployed to several member organisations and AND has received positive feedback from participating members.

The platform will continue to grow as more e-learns are developed and content added.


“We are confident that the Peopleplan learning & communications platform will support AND to provide a blended learning solution to all our members. This will include articles, videos, e-learns and webinar content to support their learning experience. Feedback from organisations who have completed the first interactive e-learn has been positive and we will continue to build on this as we grow.”
