The article reports that the Land Registry has provided IT training for 6,500 operational staff as part of a major transition programme to meet key legislative changes introduced by the Land Registration Act 2002. The aim of the Act is to simplify, improve and modernize land registration law and it provides a framework for the development of electronic conveyancing. The new requirements meant major changes to the Land Registry's IT systems to allow for the introduction of new procedures, some of which went live last autumn. A blended learning package of classroom training, PowerPoint presentations and e-learning was chosen to introduce staff to the principles of the new legislation, with IT requirements principally handled online. Graham Woodward, the manager for extended learning resources at the Land Registry said that using e-learning meant that they could simulate the new system prior to implementation. Operational staff have had to learn how to use new screens, for example for new registrable interests such as sporting and fishing rights and rights to hold markets or fairs.
