About Smart eLearning
How it Began
Founded by Andy and Samantha Vanderpal, Smart eLearning was created to provide an innovative alternative to stale corporate learning programmes.
Having each worked for 10 years in a learning and development role for some well-known organisations, it became apparent that training as we knew it, needed to change.
Andy and Samantha trialed their ideas by creating engaging, fun, and meaningful digital learning experiences for their learners at a well-known national call centre.
After implementing a simulated learning experience for systems training, employee retention rose 50% in 60 days.
This inspired them to revolutionise the tried and tested curriculum and were both hired by the parent company within weeks to design and develop training for all of their clients worldwide.
After creating hundreds of training programs for approximately 65,000 employees worldwide, and in over 30 different languages, Andy and Samantha felt that they would like to have the freedom to implement the latest digital learning trends with their clients and explore more sectors.
