Learning Pool partners with ZISHI to deliver blended learning for traders around the world
We’re delighted to announce a new partnership with ZISHI,
the educational platform powering global trading company OSTC.
OSTC are one of the world’s major liquidity providers in global futures markets, covering a diverse portfolio of traded products encompassing all major asset classes, including fixed income, energy, soft commodities, metals, agriculture, equity and foreign exchange futures.
OSTC believe that anyone, anywhere, can learn and trade. ZISHI powers OSTC trader recruitment and development and offers a unique learning platform to fast track traders into the industry or up-skill existing traders. Packed with industry insights, advanced training and insider expertise, the ZISHI platform provides biometric testing, Ofqual regulated trading qualifications, AI learning and specialist workshops.
As part of its growth strategy, OSTC recognised the need for a more scalable blended learning model with efficient and effective online training playing a far greater role.
Following a comprehensive review of the e-learning market, ZISHI has selected Learning Pool as their long-term partner based on their dedication to learning excellence, their high-quality bespoke content development services, carefully crafted courses and a scalable learning management system (LMS).
“Moving to a blended learning programme is a step change for our business,” says Keith Jones, Co-Head of ZISHI. “We are partnering with an e-learning partner who has both the solutions we need and the commercial capability to join us in our ambition to be recognised as the global leader in what we do; offering unbound potential to our employees. We’re delighted to be working with Learning Pool.”
“Being selected as ZISHI’s partner for this exciting project is brilliant news,” says Learning Pool’s CEO, Paul McElvaney. “It’s an absolute validation of our strategy to offer the best in custom content development along with the learning platforms needed to effectively distribute that content to learners. Our expertise in the online learning space and our innovative approach to solving our customers’ needs continues to make us stand out.”
