HBOS PLC is the result of a merger in 2001 between Bank of Scotland and Halifax PLC. The new organization now employs around 60,000 people across 1,500 Great Britain sites but its size isn't the only thing that's grown. HBOS's approach to learning and development is firmly blended and comprises classroom tuition and e-learning. Jane Edwards, head of training, says HBOS will never dump face-to-face training in favor of e-learning. Edwards is extremely proud that HBOS's internal IT training provision has gold standard accreditation from the Institute of IT Training.
