Introducing the Towards Maturity Community Interest Company
Towards Maturity is an independent, not for profit organisation with a passion for helping others to improve the impact of learning technologies at work.
Businesses have to continually respond to fast changing economic environments and innovative thinking on behalf of learning and development professionals is essential if they are to meet demands to deliver improved results with less resources.
The current economic climate is accelerating the demand for change.
Learning technologies have a role to play but over the years organisations have had varied experience. Large investments have been made but often with very little return. However our research has shown that businesses who are mature in their use perceive a positive difference on both their staff and business productivity.
Our aim at Towards Maturity is to:
Through our website, www.towardsmaturity.org, we provide research and resources to support organisations and individuals who want to learn from each other's experience and influence effective change, both within their own organisation but also within wider skills provision and policy.
Vision and Values
As an organisation we believe in:
Who will benefit from Towards Maturity?

Supporting and influencing the wider skills agenda
Towards Maturity started life as an e-skills UK project supported by the Learning and Skills Council to understand how employers can make the best use of learning technologies and to extend that understanding to influence wider policy change. This influencing work continues today. When it comes to influencing a wider UK skills agenda, we firmly believe that businesses, and those supporting businesses on a day to day basis, are in the best position to say what works and what doesn't when it comes to learning technology in the workplace.
