Self-reliance, quality and efficiency
De Brauw looked for a party capable of operating with them at the highest level. Of this, Arjan de With says, “We were looking for a party who understands the quality requirements that we have to meet on a day-by-day basis, and who understands that efficiency is important without making concessions in relation to that quality. We also wanted top-level support for everything that online learning entails. And ultimately, we wanted to be able to provide that for ourselves. In UP learning, we found the ideal partner.” Winni Kilaars adds, “We now manage the online learning environment ourselves, our instructors have been given teaching training, and we receive expert advice on how to build up a training course in an educationally responsible way. In addition, UP learning provided a link between the online learning environment and our personnel system. The lawyers are placed in the right position in their learning environment. Meanwhile, their permanent development points are automatically kept up to date. In addition, the trainee lawyers know where they are in their own learning environment, ‘De Brauwerij’. This way, everyone is offered the course that they need at the right time. As well as legal courses, there are those of a general nature, such as legal English. Thanks to UP learning, self-reliance, quality and efficiency go hand in hand. It keeps us in the Champions’ League.”
