- From day one you will have access to your own online learning platform, the home for all of your training resources as well as a wide selection of online courses that you can complete (even on your mobile!)

Learning & Development – Reed.co.uk
All new co-members at Reed Online attend a formal induction within their first 4 weeks in the business.
The induction provides an opportunity to meet with key stakeholders across the business, gain an understanding of our business approach and strategy, as well as the functions of each department and internal support available to all co-members.
Following this induction, departmental training is provided to ensure that our new starters are equipped with the skills they need to be successful.
Reed Online takes a blended approach to learning and this may include a combination of classroom based sessions, e-learning, work shadowing, and peer to peer learning.
“We have a formal career plan here so I’m working on that to move up towards a mid-level Developer, but as well as that I’ve been working a bit more on the design side of things. So Reed Online is great in that it allows you to forge your own path… I’m moving more towards design and development and trying to merge those two roles together.”
