10 June, 2020 | The ICTI Ethical Toy Program announces its collaboration with Quizrr to offer free and engaging E-learning content on a new platform to all factory members in the IETP Program.
The E-learning platform contains informative videos powered by Quizrr, followed by a mini-test carefully designed by IETP’s expert team to strengthen the connection between the videos and the IETP standard.
IETP aims to build factory knowledge and capability on responsible sourcing, supporting factories to make improvements, and helping them to get the most from the Ethical Toy Program. IETP’s in-person training sessions attracted over 1,110 factory representatives in 2019 and 1,560 in 2018. To build on this success, IETP will scale up its capability-building program to cover both factory management and workers via digital learning.
The first training modules to be launched on the E-learning platform focus on Workplace Safety and Responsible Recruitment. Workplace Safety modules are available at basic and advanced levels. Responsible Recruitment is an advanced topic that will be launched in July.
Factories can use the advanced modules to deepen their understanding of responsible sourcing and IETP requirements and deploy the basic modules as an internal training program to introduce new colleagues to the concepts, as well as educating workers on workplace safety, their rights and responsibilities. These E-learning modules are simple, impactful, and measurable. IETP member factories are free to access these resources via the Connect Platform.

This new E-learning platform, created in collaboration with Quizrr, is the lastest capability-building solution added to our training program.” commented Carmel Giblin, President and CEO, ICTI Ethical Toy Program (IETP)
“We are excited about the launch of the E-learning Platform, we have worked closely with our partner Quizrr to curate the content most relevant to Workplace Safety and Responsible Recruitment to meet the needs of our stakeholders. I believe these invaluable resources will enrich factories' internal training with measurable impacts” shared Johnny Kong, General Manager, ICTI Ethical Toy Program (IETP)
“We are very happy that a renowned global organization as IETP selected Quizrr as their partner in this project, which is a first step in introducing digital capacity building to IETP’s member factories. We look forward to supporting IETP and their factory members with our expertise as they are starting their journey into the digital space of the capacity building. We are looking forward to positive outcomes and feedback from the program as digital tools enable a cost-efficient, scalable and safe way of training and engaging factory workers in their rights and wellbeing.” said Annika Garubo, Head of Commercial Sales & Partnerships, Quizrr
