|Partner Details||In the world of training, education, and development, it is surprisingly rare to find a mix of educational, content, and technical expertise within one organisation. Light Unwrapped is a unique organisation founded just over twelve months ago to bring together five highly respected individuals, each with their own specialism. This group of independents was initially brought together to help the Lighting Industry Association tackle a long-term industry problem – the lack of recognised quality learning, formal qualifications, and clear development paths for those working within lighting. For any sector, this issue would be challenging, but with massive changes in lighting technology emerging this was a particular threat at an exciting time for both manufacturers and those working with lighting products. As a result, Light Unwrapped supported the creation of a Lighting Academy, providing training in technical skills and underpinning knowledge specific to lighting engineers and designers. Over a number of years, the Light Unwrapped team has been key in developing and delivering much of the Academy’s training portfolio. This has included building the case for the LIA to be accepted as partners with the University of South Wales to develop and deliver the first formally recognised qualifications in lighting at levels 4 and 5. While working together the Light Unwrapped team recognised a passion for creating the very best learning and development. A shared vision to empower a breadth of different professions to realise the very best from exciting new technology and products, whether the need is for saving energy, safety, convenience, wellbeing, or aesthetic lit environments. Those who are working with the exciting new lighting products are a much more diverse group and need greater understanding not just of the lit environment, but the technology, products and lighting schemes that they may be called upon to install, replace, specify or supply. The team at Light Unwrapped are well placed to take on that challenge through all types of learning interventions, including using their specialist background and knowledge to develop a portfolio of blended learning experiences that can offer the highest quality of learning needed in the current challenging times, and in the future.|
