England, UK – The LIA is excited to announce the successful launch of its newly refreshed website, which went live on 2nd July 2024. This launch marks a significant milestone in The LIA’s ongoing commitment to enhancing member experience and providing key resources for continuing professional development.

Online Learning Platform: Skill Development at Your Fingertips
Designed to cater to the evolving needs of professionals, The LIA’s Online Learning Portal offers a diverse range of courses. Tailored to help develop the ‘right skills at the right time’, from introductory to advanced technical skills to behavioural and leadership development, the platform has become the cornerstone of The LIA’s educational offerings.

Commercial & Training Manager, Teresa Beazley, commented “It’s important to recognise the needs of people within the industry have changed, and offering learning opportunities that fit around busy work and life commitments is essential to bridging the emerging skills gap, while engaging and retaining talent. Our new online training portal brings a range of new content to life, while making it as accessible as possible.”

Member Engagement Platform: Exclusive Access for Members
The Member Engagement Platform is a dedicated space for The LIA members to connect, share insights, and access exclusive content. This platform features special resources such as industry articles and webinars, enhancing a vibrant and engaged community. Members have the opportunity to interact with peers, gain industry knowledge, and stay up-to-date with the latest trends within the sector.

Membership Engagement Executive, Chloe Leatherland, noted “Our new Member Engagement Platform will redefine how we connect, ensuring every interaction is seamless and appropriately targeted leaving a personalised and lasting impression.

Enhanced User Experience
The new website’s intuitive navigation ensures that users can easily find the information they need. Whether accessing comprehensive course offerings or exclusive member content, the redesigned interface promises a seamless experience across all devices.

The initial feedback from members and visitors to the website so far has been wholly positive:
